Some tortures are physical
And some are mental,
But the one that is both
Is dental.
--Ogden Nash

Apparantly it's one of the more common nightmares that people have. In fact, it was recently a Research Day topic But if it's never happened to you in real life, spitting out gritty pieces of broken tooth is a rather unforgettable feeling. I have a feeling my wisdom tooth will be be getting intimate with a pair of pliers at the dentist this morning.

(No, I did not break the tooth while blowing poison gas at the Baron Harkonnen. Not that I remember, anyway.)

I'm actually not so much nervous as a bit relieved; finally they'll be taking out the last one of the four. In some ways I wish they'd have taken them all out at once, rather than one at a time over the years. I think it's because they're in the employ of the Instant Mashed Potato and Applesauce lobbies.

I feel it is my duty to stop the rumors, however, that Pocky G was in any way involved in this incident.

I doubt champagne bubbles will be good for the open wound. So if we close on the house today, I'll have to toast the occasion with another Percoset Percodan Darvoset Tylenol squirt of Orajel. (Do I know how to party or what? Next stop, Conservative talk radio...)

Loves conquers all things except poverty and toothache.

That was Duke Leto... not Duncan Idaho.

However, I'll forgive this Dune trespass. =)

Pocky! Pocky! Pocky!

Perhaps if you had eat the Men's Pocky it wouldn't have been a problem.

So noted and changed, Nala; thanks. For some reason Leto wasn't an option in this dumb little Dune Quiz, which is what I really wanted to link to.

Yeah, but Men's Pocky isn't hard and rich. Which is also how I like my men.

Instant mashed potatoes are the Devil's work.

You really don't want to go poking your pocket with Pocky. Shudder. (Also you know that drinking with straws is forbidden for a couple weeks, right? Good. (We only wag our index finger because we love.))
