I am biting down on gauze, the right side of my mouth is numb and a little swollen, and overall my teeth ache some and feel all weird. BUT, the damned wisdom tooth is gone. Bloody easy procedure – the dentist went in with the freezing needles, came back in a few minutes. “Can you feel this?” Nope. “How about this?” Nope. “Can you feel this?” Nope. Clink. “There’s your tooth.”. It certainly helped that the offending chomper didn’t seem to have any real roots, it looks more like a piece of candy corn than anything – it just popped out (they let me keep the tooth. It’s oddly fascinating). So one down, three to go. Those ones won’t be nearly as easy, though. I have to go back in in a couple weeks to discuss removing those… I am feeling wussy about the whole thing. They don’t hurt, they’re not bothering me, why not leave well enough alone? Eeeep. Ironic that the one that was causing me the most grief turned out to be the most benign.
I’m glad now that I decided against going to Field Day. They’ve been denied a permit to use the space where they were going to hold it, but organizers insist they can work it out and won’t give refunds until the 9th, in the event that it actually didn’t happen. Yeah, that’s super. So people who would be travelling from far and distant lands should proceed with their travel plans and hope that there’s a show going on when they arrive? Nice. Full story here. I will instead be enjoying NXNE… unless of course it’s cancelled on account of SARS. Fucking SARS.
