I just experienced my first brain freeze as an adult, and I cannot say it was a pleasant experience. I had my very first ever, cherry-limeade slush. While I was broadcasting live on location at one of the local car lots, the new car sales-manager ordered a cherry-limeade slush for everyone on the lot. I was gracefully declining when he, the sales manager said "drink it don't let it go to waste, besides it's hot out here you need to cool off." That is when a long lost childhood memory returned, "the brain-freeze." After surviving my painful recovery I thought to myself, "what causes these and how do I make them go away?"
