Done In By a Rogue Molar

He was always a member of the team.  Trusted, dependable.  I counted on him. When he was battered and damaged, I had him wrapped in gold to keep him strong. I thought he'd always be on my side.

(Specifically, left side, lower jaw.)

But my dentist says he's gone rogue.  Turned against me.  Trying to poison the others while inflicting as much pain as possible.

I'm fighting back.  Antibiotics.  Painkillers.  With any luck, he'll be forced into submission and returned to his job.  Otherwise, he'll be removed from the ranks.

In the meantime, I'm taking a day off.  Too fuzzy headed for a coherent post.  Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

I leave you with this.

Never Assume:

Wife texts husband on a cold winters morning: "Windows frozen."

Husband texts back: "Pour some lukewarm water over it."

Wife texts back: "Computer completely screwed up now!"

I was in the same predicament last year. My dentist was determined to save that molar although I was all for pulling it out. He did save it.

Take your painkillers and get some sleep.

I'm sorry! Take drugs, you'll feel better.

Ouch! Feel better soon. I agree with Alex. ;)

Time for a dishonourable discharge, it seems to me. Followed by brandy.

Hope you're feeling better soon. There is nothing I hate more than a toothache. Well, other than a visit to the dentist.

Diane - Kind of opposite situation here. My dentist says it needs to go but I'm trying to hold on. We'll see what happens.

Thanks.

LD Masterson said...

Thanks, Alex. Working on it.

LD Masterson said...

Larri - Thanks.

LD Masterson said...

Mike - Not quite ready to let him go. But as soon as I'm off these meds, the brandy sounds great.

LD Masterson said...

Donna - Welcome. And thanks.

Talk about mean back-biters.

Seriously, get that sucker taken out. It's not worth suffering like that.

Take care, hon.

Linda Jackson said...

Very creative post. Enjoyed every bit of it. :)

LD Masterson said...

Thanks, Gina. Doing better today.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - Was that a groaner? From you?!?

LD Masterson said...

Linda J. - Glad the post was better than the subject. :-)

Too funny! Not your tooth situation, but the closing lines.
