to desire the replica

posted on: February 27th, 2009

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.

I have my wisdom teeth too! And Leonard Cohen tickets. Just thought I’d rub it in yet again.

Kim Says:

You are an evil woman my dear!

Oh Jeannie is such an evil woman…to kick you while you are down.

I got mine out at 14 I remember because the next day I had to take a greyhound from MA to CA and the hell was the awful bus smell mixed with an empty stomach.

I’ll pray to the fairy, winning lotto and Rich people GOD’s for you.

Bon Don Says:

uGH… you poor thing, I hate any pain related to teeth :(

Feel better soon, oh and sorry I don’t have any Leonard Cohen tickets.

My dentist told me that I have zero wisdom teeth and that I am a freak of nature. OK, he didn’t say the freak of nature part, but he implied it. Needless to say, I am quite pleased to be a freak of nature.
