Has anyone ever experience a “dry sponge tongue” before…..

I remember a couple of years ago, my tongue was dry and parched, I drank lots and lots of water but it was as if the water rolled right off my tongue and down my throat. My tongue still felt dry, like a sponge that has been sitting out in the sun- it didn’t absorbed any hydration from that water…still to this day I don’t know why, but since we’re talking about the tongue in class I thought I share my experience.

Any thoughts?
