Activity of the Moment: Third Molar Out


This week is definitely one of my worst weeks. Why, you say? Well, I blame my freaking third molar (a.k.a. wisdom tooth, or more specifically, no. 17 in dentist lingo) for growing horizontally, i.e. it was lying down instead of standing.

On Monday, I went to the dentist to get it removed. It wasn't painful because the dentist happily injected me with anesthesia. But, I have to hand it to him: Never in all my 19 years of living was I forced to open my mouth so wide as to accommodate his equipment inside. I swear, he drilled me ungraciously that spit was flying all over my face. It was so nasty.

The good part, though, is that I never tasted blood nor felt my gum being slashed open. However, one of the assistants did put the suction-thingy on my tongue. That was uncomfortable.

Anyway, I'm on the recovery stage as my swollen cheek starts to lose its inflated glory, and my stitches are closing. I hope I won't look weird when I go to school next week.
