A Bit Less Wise

The gentleman and I drove to the big city today. In our small town, you are unable to get Starbucks, sushi, ride a go-cart or get your wisdom teeth removed. All things I wanted to do today – except not get my teeth pulled – only his. One of his wisdom teeth had been really bugging him for some time as it had started to decay and was causing quite a bit of pain.

His tooth was pulled before I was half-done with one Sudoko puzzle. Super lightning fast. And for $84.

Let’s just say, my wisdom teeth removal surgery (albeit for all 4) took over an hour and a half, resulted in the doctor worried that I would have permanent nerve damage and cost almost 2 grand.

After his tooth was removed, we scheduled another appointment to have the 3 remaining teeth removed in a few weeks. And then we went to Best Buy, Comp USA and another computer store. At each place he discussed the plans for his new computer at length with several different people.

After my surgery, my friend stopped for gas and had I been able to talk without bleeding all over myself, I would have yelled at her, if my mouth would have opened wider than an inch.

I am jealous. My surgery was less than a year ago. The pain still fresh. I am sure I will be able to let it go soon. Unless he loses 10 pounds in 2 days by eating a soft food diet of macaroni and cheese.

I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out at once too. In the middle of the first tooth, I heard my dentist say "uh oh, we have a situation here. I'll come back to this one". Nice. Apparently my tooth had grown really wonky into my jaw bone and he had to saw it out. He said he had only seen my particular "situation" happen in one other patient - his mother. And let me just say that my dentist is all kinds of sexy and smells really, really good. I did not want to be compared to his mother at all.

I was crazy and drove myself home after that. Thankfully it was on Halloween so people just thought my bloody, puffy face was part of a costume. At least I hope they thought that. And it was also unfortunate that it was on Halloween because that's the absolute worst day of the year for traffic in Atlanta (which already has sucky traffic). It took me almost 2 hours to get home. In all my wisdom tooth removal splendor.

I cannot believe you drove home!!! I was under strict orders to bring someone to drive me home, and boy did I need it!

Ouch ouch ouch.

And just a follow-up note. He only lost 6 pounds. Men suck with their weight losing capabilities.
