Leandra was embarrassed to tell her doctor how she got frostbitten, although sex was not involved. How come????

Did L get frostbitten while doing something stupid? something illegal? something generally frowned upon?

Is it relevant on what part of her body she got frostbitten? The usual parts (ears, fingers, toes...)? Just some of the usual parts? Some other part?

Did L get frostbitten due to being out in cold weather? due to some artificially refrigerated item or substance?

Do L and her doctor have a relationship other than doctor/patient?

All of her fingers? Fingers on just one hand? Just some of the fingers on one hand?

Was she frostbitten by liquid nitrogen? dry ice? cold metal?

Did she get her hand(s) stuck somewhere?

Was she trying to turn her fingers into popcicles? I.e. Holding her fingers in an ice cube tray full of cool-aid so she'd have a ready accessible snack?

I always have to get the sillyness out of my system at the start of these.

Was she frostbitten at home? at work? at a shop? at another place of business? some other indoor setting? outdoors?

Was anyone else present when she was frostbitten?

Would she have been equally embarrassed to tell anyone else how she got frostbitten? (i.e., is there something in particular about the doctor? or was it just an embarrassing situation in general?)

Is ice cream relevant? Was a fridge or freezer involved in any way?

Did she dip her fingers in the ice cream?
Was she trying to eat the ice cream? To make it? Was she worried that the doctor might think her greedy?

Was the ice cream being chilled in any unusual way (I find it hard to believe that ice cream alone would be cold enough to cause frostbite)? Did she have her fingers in it for a long period of time?

***** SPOILER***********
Leandra's workplace, just for fun, gave out cardboard cartons of ice cream at the end of one day. Leandra, who has about as much willpower as I do, couldn't resist eating the ice cream on her long commute home Lacking a fork or spoon, she used her fingers, which got frostbitten, & then she was embarrassed to tell her doctor how she got frostbitten. This is a true story, but, despite what you might reasonably suppose, it did not happen to me but to someone I read aboiut. Sorry it was so easy, but my new puzzle at the bottom of the page won't be--I hope.
