The pulling of the tooth For those of you who haven't yet had the pleasure of having their wisdom teeth pulled, enjoy your time. I had both of the bastards pulled on the right side on Friday morning. Hell of a way to start the day. Both were impacted. The dentist had to break the bone to get the top one out. He cut the bottom one into pieces to get it to let go. To make it worse, 30 minutes after leaving the dentist's office the blood clot broke loose. 4 friggin' hours and a pint of blood later I finally got the bleeding stopped. My face swelled up so much I couldn't get my mouth opened up. No food for two days. Hurt like hell just to get a drink of water. No sympathy wanted or needed. I was a dumb SOB for not having them pulled 4 years ago. I'm just trying to make you who get to look forward to this feel all warm and fuzzy knowing it SUCKS!!!
