Know What Else Sucks?

Having an itch in the stitches in your gum. And having a job where you talk on the phone for two hours a day.
And then, because your are talking, your gums itch itch itch and you use your tongue to scratch this itch as you don't DARE use a finger.....so you scratch it as it were.

And pop a stitch.

You feel the tug, then the POP and a slight feeling of going fuzzy because it's so freaking revolting.

And then after a drink of soda and a couple of deep breaths, you realize that now you have what feels like a wad of string hanging down. A wad of string with a big old knot in the end. And your gum stings like a mofo.

I really will stop blogging about this tooth at some point.

Of course now it's not longer a tooth. It's just the The Artist Formerly Known as Tooth. Perhaps I'll insist that you refer to it as THE ARTIST.

I'm still cringing from reading this post. In fact, I'm typing this with only one eye open. Eeegh. (shudder) Sorry, dude.

I remember getting my wisdom teeth out. I think the itch was the worst thing ever.
go ahead- use a finger. I promise we won't say anything! (we might be thinking things behind your back but... :) )
