It Hurts So Good
Once again, I have applied too much Tabasco Sauce to my potato wedges. It hurts to eat them, but I can’t stop. Why? Why can’t I stop inflicting this pain upon myself? Because it hurts so good. That’s why.
When I was younger, I never understood why people seemed to enjoy such things. Why would you want to essentially burn off all of your taste buds, rendering your tongue useless until they regenerate? (At least in terms of food, but that’s another story.) Why do people seem to be addicted to getting tattoos or piercings? Why do people pay for someone to essentially beat the shit out of them? Because it hurts so good.
While it’s quite a jump from excessive Tabasco sauce to hiring a dominatrix, I can relate.
