Okay, so I'm not losing ALL of them, just a few of them. And so what if I'm a little on the overly dramatic side. Where do you think FDPG gets it from, anyhow?
But I am losing teeth.
I lost one 11 days ago. It broke. I went to see my dentist about it. And he, a very weird and extremely manic fellow, informed me cheerfully that it HAD to come out. It was unfixable. He saw another broken tooth and, with another, cheery smile, said "How bout I get this one at the same time? Oh come, on, please?" Then he chuckled at his evidently massive wit. If his fingers had been in my mouth I'd have bit him.
As it was, I declined politely. I can only take so much trauma in one day, I told him. He laughed delightedly, but I was perfectly serious. I don't do pain. At least, not very well.
And now, here I am, 11 days later, still in pain from that stupid tooth removal. I've been to the dentist twice with emergency pain. I've eaten more Advil than I care to tell you about - and I hate taking anything that doesn't involve limes or ice and lots of tonic. I've not slept much either. I'm exceedingly irritable.
Apparently I have developed...wait for it...Dry Socket.
Sounds like something old ladies with osteoporosis get, doesn't it? Which makes it even more depressing. It's painful AND I feel old and dried out. Gosh, does the fun ever stop around here?
So, tell me something funny. Take my mind off my misery. And while you're at it, don't forget to floss!
