Days Later

Well my mouth is healing nicely. This experience hasn't been nearly the disaster I'd anticipated. I was expecting to get the dreaded "dry socket" that everyone kept telling me about. People kept warning me "Don't get dry socket! It's the most painful thing EVER." To which I would just nod slowly and resist the urge to punch them in the face. I mean, really, it's rude to make someone petrified about a condition that's not entirely preventable.

Anyway, I think (I hope) I am in the clear now and will be all healed up in the next week or so.

I have to say I enjoyed my weekend of resting and recovering. Recent oral surgery is the perfect excuse to watch television for three days straight without showering, speaking to anyone, or picking up after oneself.

Also, I think I may go down as the only woman in history who actually gained weight after getting her wisdom teeth out. Yesterday at Koo Koo Roo I requested EXTRA gravy with my PINT of mashed potatoes.

The downside to all this is that I haven't been able to get any Christmas shopping done and my parents get into town TOMORROW.

Time to bring this sloth-fest to an end.

Glad you feel OK, and that you're getting some extra time to eat mashed potatoes and watch TV! (That sounds so good right now...)

Good luck with the Christmas shopping!

(OH, and still be careful with your sockets-- Funny Man got dry socket 3 days after the surgery!!) (I allegedly "made" him eat pizza...)

Don't let parents coming interrupt your slothfest!

And FWIW, I always get double mashed potatoes and extra gravy at KooKooRoo. And double rolls. But I don't do double turkey because I have to watch my girlish figure.

rachel- Not sure if I ever want mashed potatoes again.

jenbun- Why would you make him eat pizza, evil lady!

riff dog- Well okay, now I don't feel so bad.

tia- I know! I don't ever want to give them up. Especially with all this rainy weather we've been having.

surviving- Yeah, it was amazing the first few times.

I don't MAKE anybody eat pizza!! (Because if they don't eat it, more for me, right?!?) ;)







(P.S. My word verification is "overact"... what have you been telling them???)
