Yay! Positivity!

is that even a word?

anyway, I promised a couple of posts ago that I would list the things that I felt were good about having teeth ripped out of your gums and dealing with the healing process afterwards... here ya go. (but I don't think I can come up with 10, so...)

Top 7 Positive Things About Having Your Teeth Ripped Out Of Your Gums And Dealing With The Healing Process:

7. I actually got quite a few laughs at the physical condition of my face during the worst part of it, and I like making people laugh. So the Chipmunk Cheeks were pretty fun.

6. Being able to lay in bed all day and Watch as Much TV As I Wanted was pretty alright, and the not-having-to-feel-guilty-about-it part was good too.

5. Having Everything Brought To Me while laying or sitting down all day, now that was probably one of the better perks, even though after a while I got frustrated with not being able to do anything for myself...

4. Even thought I didn't eat that much food, Spoon Feeding Myself Yummy Smoothies was one of my favorite things to do, becuase they were all so good!

3. This one obviously gets third place because Getting School Off For Three Days, right before the busy time of the semester starts can be really relaxing and was a good time to mentally prepare myself. (even thought I hardly did any homework... ah ha ha....)

2. I think during my "healing process", because I wasn't allowed to eat any solid food, which cut out bread, pasta, meat, raw vegies, hard fruit, coffee, chocolate, candy and pretty much everything else that doesn't taste good blended or mushed, etc.... I ended up Losing Weight. I think around 5 or 6 pounds. So I decided to come up with a new diet. It's called the "Lose a tooth Lose a Pound!" diet, with a sister-diet (just in time for Christmas!!) called "Lose 2, Gain the Loss of 5!"

1. And the number one positive thing about getting my wisdom teeth pulled is the fact that I HAVE NAILS!!!! I haven't had nails ever! and I actually couldn't physically bite my nails for almost two weeks!! I mean they aren't the best right now, like thin and not very strong, but they are there!! I didn't actaully notice them until I scratched myself and then thought.. "Hey wait a minute! I SCRATCHED MYSELF!!! YEHAW!!!" well that's what is was like in my head anyway... But I am pretty happy about the things I gained during my experience, especailly the "lose a couple teeth, gain a few nails" part.

So that's it. And even though I'm kind of making fun of this experience, I'm just above all else glad that I didn't have any complications or problems. I mean things could have been so much worse. So I was pretty lucky!

sorry this is a little hard to read towards the end... I messed it up somehow. I'm confused... but whatever.

Hey Kim.
I can honestly say I can relate to the positive things you named in regards to having your teeth pulled. I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better.
Your toothless buddy,

Okay, I did offer to make you a toast and egg smoothie. But I just took your muffled grunting for a 'no'.
