Lessons...

1. Do not have four teeth pulled at one time. What the fuck was I thinking? And how can a doctor do this to a person in good conscience?

2. Do not stop taking your pain medication UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. This may mean that your children will have to fend for themselves for a few days.

3. Do not console yourself with Ben & Jerry's ice cream. You will not be able to chew the gooey brownie pieces or crumbly cookie chunks.

4. Do not expect other people to have sympathy for you. If they can't see the gaping wounds, they will automatically assume that you feel fine.

Any questions? Class dismissed.

:( Sorry! 4 teeth sucks, but at least you don't have to have it done again... I suggest a lot of moaning. And act dizzy on occasion. Blame it on the pain and just wobble a bit, saying "Oh my... I think I need to sit down..."

Yeah, I think you need to bump up the melodrama!

Sorry, buddy.

I prefer the passive aggressive approach. Wait til the husband is in a similar situation and give him the same treatment he gave you. He'll hate it. I know, I'm bad....
