I am one of those weirdos that still has all four of her wisdom teeth. There is no point in going through a bazillion needles and having someone dig into my jaw with a big knife as they are perfectly healthy. In fact I’ve never had a single cavity. I also apparently have “ample room.” (Yes, yes, I know, I have a big mouth. Even my dentist says so.)
However….. A couple of times a year, those oh-so-wise teeth way in the back do a little shift and shimmy just for the hell of it. The pain lasts a day or two and is akin to having your braces tightened which, for those of you wore them, know that this is a little piece of fresh hell. My entire mouth aches in bright red pulses of pure hate.
The only thing that could possibly make me feel better at this point would be Leonard Cohen tickets. Just putting that out there.
