0 - Jones says that she had a case of mumps as an adult, after having it "on the other side" when she was a child. She heard that eating sardines was good for the pain and fever but ended up going to the doctor. She believes that taste buds are not on the tongue and teeth but in the gums. She also tells of a woman she knew who used drugs.
