The Age Without Widsom (oh, I mean Wisdom)

I've been watching a lot of movies the past few days. Some really good ones, I hear. Four and a half stars even for some of them. One or two Academy Awards winners. A lot of actors I really like. Most of the time I am open minded about movies. If they're horrible I'll often say I like them for art's sake, even. But these last couple days I have been the most bitter and cynical movie critic ever. I wasn't happy with any of the movies. They did nothing for me!!! And I want movies to do something for me!!! I found myself wishing I was getting my wisdom teeth pulled instead of having to sit and watch them. Eh, maybe that's just the drugs....

So my teeth were pulled on Thursday and the giant holes finally stopped bleeding by Saturday morning. Other than that everything's been just jolly. (dry heave) Actually, everything has been going better than I pessimistically anticipated. Still a lot of pain in my jaw, though. And because it hurts too much to smile I crafted a nice piece of facial art to act as my interim-smile. All I do is flash it when I'm happy!

I have a photo of most of the pieces that used to be my four wisdom teeth. I guess one of them was at such an awkward angle that they basically had to cut it into a bunch of small pieces that weren't worth putting in my little to-go bag. :( Oh how I miss being smart.

I think I'll be okay to get back into my running shoes by the middle of the week. Hopefully Tuesday.



  1. They let you keep those teeth?!? Are you going to put them under your pillow for the tooth fairy? LOL

    So tell me . . .what did you watch? I'm curious to know what you though was bad hehe

    ROFLMAO! Very nice faux smile. I should just carry one of those around whenever I'm pissed at my husband hehe

  2. I had one of my wisdom teeth pulled a few years ago and it was at an odd angle as well and came out in pieces. Because I am a bit paranoid, I opted on staying awake for the ordeal and they basically used a chisel and a hammer to get it out. It was a very odd experience. I hope your jaw is back to normal soon.

  3. Scott, you are too funny and cute!

  4. Oh, I wanna know what you didn't like!! I hate not liking a movie..especially when I dish out $$ ;)

    Yuck! 4 teefers gone! I'm glad your able to type though :)

    The toothfairy just hit my house too but the man is a little younger here ;) (6)

    Heres to some better movies and some good drugs :p

  5. Man thats brave getting all four pulled at once. Still got all mine and like. They don't give me any bother though so I guess they're okay. Enjoy the training when you pick it up again.

  6. Two major benifites I can see with your recent loss. 1)You will be able to run much faster. Wisdom teeth are rather heavy, especially in your case. 2)Without such wisdom you will now become a great ultra marathon runner...

  7. That's pretty gruesome. I think my mom may have my wisodm teeth still -- she probably wanted to hoard all that wisdom for herself!

    So what movies did you watch? I need to know!

  8. Congrats for your PR on the 10K! The wisdom teeth: what a terrible memory! I cannot forget the pain before and after the surgery.

  9. I got mine pulled the day before I had to move myself back to Austin for my sophomore year. I had NO sympathy from my new roommates...should have been a sign. :)

    What movies didn't you like?
