Getting Teeth Pulled... horrible.  It's like pulling teeth. 

I got my wisdom teeth out this Friday, and though it can be an "interesting" experience, I am glad it only happens once. I have never really minded the dentist, needles or other stuff of the sort. I don't like them of course; it's not like I'm a masochist or something, but if it's something that has to be done, I'll sit back and take it. The prospect of me getting to sleep, completely drugged up, though the operation, intrigued me though. Needless to say, that morning I had butterflies both from anxiety and excitement.

I went into the office, and was guided by the nurse into the backroom. As they hooked me up to the heartbeat monitor, I could hear the bleeps indicating my heart rate jumping all over the place. After the doctor put the needle for the IV in, I laid there for a bit. After a minute or so, I realized that I wasn’t feeling any sleepier. I though to myself "I must be superhuman or something, the drugs aren’t even effecting me." Suddenly I felt a small tug on the needle, followed by him saying "I’m going to start adding the medicine now." My illusions of greatness were shattered, and before I knew it, *clunk*, I was out.

Long story short, I woke up an hour later with four less teeth and completely loopy. Laying in the recovery bed, the first course of action, of course, was to text my friends saying "I'm totally trippin balls right now!" Before I knew it, I was sitting at home, starved, and wondering what would be able to eat. A couple of web searches later, I realized that my options for the next few days were going to be limited to rice pudding and yogurt. Yum! (not)
Amongst the suggestions for soup, pudding, ice cream, and jello however, I did find this jewel, which I bring to you completely unedited.

"The next day, I was eating "round Table Pizza" My m,outh had no infections alter on or nothing, the thing is they dotn want food stuck in thue gums, so basically clean out your gums, I would close my mouse and blow hair into it, and other ways to get the food to move around, just find a away and ucan eat, although, it can cause further bleeding, its been months since then, still no infection. "
This is why you don't go on the internet while you are still partially sedated.

Wait, what?
As I move towards today, I really can't think of any interesting things to bring you.  Getting your wisdom teeth out sucks, and you're pretty much hungry all the time. I have been eating some solid food, most of which is still crappy semi-soft stuff.  Despite not using the close-mouse-blow-hair technique, my mouth feels pretty good as well. But god damn, I really want a hamburger...
