At Least It's Not His Funny Bone

Hoop is having all four of his wisdom teeth extracted tomorrow.

To prepare, I've bought the ingredients for a proper "last meal"... Steak. In
2006, back when Hoop and I were staying with my family, I had my wisdom teeth removed and my parents decided to have steak to celebrate. Of course I couldn't eat any of it. But I'm not bitter. I'm just waiting for the day they have some dental procedure done so I can sit on their front step eating a big juicy t-bone.

Hoop is understandably nervous about tomorrow. Me, I'm just trying to convince my body that I'm not really getting the flu. Because that would just be lousy timing, wouldn't it? We've stocked up on soup and Slim Fast for the patient and I've resigned myself to only eating things Hoop doesn't like for the next week, like salad. Don't pity me. Hoop doesn't have to know what's IN the salad. So what if mix my greens with ham and potatoes?

Dear Obnoxious Morning Commuter;

If you're going to stare at someone, at least have a response for when they decide to stare back. I tried to ignore you when you stopped short at the red light (three car-lengths away from the car in front of you!) just so your vehicle could be next to mine. I prayed for that light to change. When I finally decided to glance your way, thinking maybe you had a reason for trying to get my attention, you stared as if I had a boob growing out of my forehead. So I stared back, waiting for that moment when you realized you'd been caught. But you continued to look in that same blank way. "Oh my God," I mouthed at you. Then I flashed you my engagement ring. Still, you stared. Fortunately the light had to turn green, as is the nature of those things. So I floored it through the next set of lights until you were just a speck on the horizon. I actually feared what I might do to you if we were caught side by side again. Like maybe I might take this car and smash it through your back-end. Yeah. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

That site is friggin awesome. BTW, I tagged you for a meme, it's short I swear on my sideburns.

That site is amazing. I hope Hoop's procedure goes well tomorrow. I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed back in college, and to this day I still can't stand the taste of Carnation instant breakfast.

Good luck to Hoop!
Just thought I'd let you know I did WWC. Hope it's o.k.
Take care

I still have one of my wisdom teeth. The other three came out with no problem at all. Just regular extractions. I hope Hoop's go as well.

Oh that sucks for Hoop. Be sure to take him for a chocolate milkshake this weekend too. Or better yet, offer to go get it for him and while you're out you can have a cheeseburger and not have to eat it in front of him.

Cool site!

That site is awesome!

Good luck tomorrow, Hoop! I had two of my wisdom teeth pulled when I was...21, I think, and it only took a month for me to be able to fully open my jaw.

Good luck to Hoop. We won't talk about the two dry sockets I had after getting all four of mine removed, will we?!

Tell Hoop not to worry on the wisdom teeth. I had mine out years ago. They simply knocked me out with laughing gas. It was easy, because they basically just popped out on me.

Now...if we're talking root canal too...that's totally different. Load up on painkillers even before they wear off. Then you'll be fine.

I'll keep ya in my thoughts and prayers for an easy procedure...and that Tink doesn't come down with the flu.

That site is the greatest thing I have ever seen!! I am sorry that hoop has to get his wisdom teeth pulled. I also have not gone through that horror. I'm not looking forward to that day.

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger Edge said...

You are an awesome ball and chain. AND you mentioned two of my favorite things ... boobs and steak. It's like I won the lottery today.

Oddly enough I liked the music on that site. Crazy Germans!

Hoop will be fine. His guy friends need to tell him to stop being a pu$$ and get over it!


LOL

Good luck to Hoop, tell him not to worry. My mom fed me RICE the night I had mine out - not a good thing to eat when you have a hole in your jaw!

Very cool site Tink thanks for directing us there.

Hope you don't run into the creep in the car again!

Best wishes to Hoop! I hope it all goes smoothly for him. My ex was at 7-11 the evening after getting his wisdom teeth extracted, eating a chili dog, but he was crazy so let's not use that as a yardstick.

Way to outrun the creepy stranger. What a freak!

Good luck to Hoop!

I love that website. They're not from around here, are they? lol

I think you should eat a big, juicy steak in front of him. Haha! No, that would be mean, and you're not mean.

Wait til you are 40 and sex starved you won't be upset with those staring commuters anymore.

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger Karen said...

You are a good girlfriend. I had my wisdome teeth out (1994 - I think) on the day before Thanksgiving. My whole family feasted and I tried to eat some mashed potatos.

Good luck to Hoop.

Tell HOOP NOT TO SMOKE for 48 hours afterward or he will be SORRY, if he is still smoking. Is he? I forget.

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger meno said...

Also tell Hoop that he'll be fine. Just make sure you have some ice packs for his face when you get him home.

They give out good drugs for this.

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

Meno's right. Good drugs. All you need.

That site is cool.

Steak is the perfect last meal.

Person in car staring = creepy.

I refused to let them take my wisdom teeth... I still have them, and I intend to keep them for the rest of my life!

That perve in the car... the audacity! He reminds me of a story I could tell, but I don't think you want to hear that one right now...

 
At 23 January, 2008, Anonymous Kate said...

Fantastic website! I hope Hoop recovers very quickly, and I will keep my fingers crossed that you don't get the flu.

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger Jen said...

Did dude in the car try to hand you some lotion while mouthing, "It rubs the lotion on its skin. It does this whatever it is told. It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again."

Cos then I'd have to advise you to, drive little Tink, run away as fast as you can. . . .

Creepy. Or just creep. Whatever. It's all the same.

I had all four of my wisdom teeth pulled the day before Turkey Day & I still ate everything. I didn't even have to mush it. Good luck with that, Mr. Hoop.

Fantastic website, btw!

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger gr said...

So, the dude in the other car figures if he makes eyes at you he'll get your number? I am thinking WWMMD (what would Mad Max Do), which has something to do with using a sawed off shotgun on the guy in the car next to you....

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger Jo said...

When men do that, I just break out a little 'tard face'...sadly this still doesn't work on some apes but at least it makes me laugh really hard. Try it next time!

I didn't think getting my wisdoms out was that bad...two milkshakes, great sleep induced by Codeine & the next day I was back in the game. Hoop has a good nurse!

That website was great :)

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger Kell said...

Good luck to Hoop. First day of recovery is the worse, and hopefully he'll be ok after that. But I'm not sure they'll let him suck on a milkshake for a while. The worse part for Al was me staring at him, wondering if he was ok.

 
At 23 January, 2008, Blogger fiwa said...

Awww... poor Hoop. I hope they give him good drugs!

That site is hilarious!

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger Doc said...

hopefully the wisdom teeth surgery will go well for hoop getting those things out sucks!

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger Alli said...

WOW! What a creepazoid! EEK!

Best wishes to Hoop. At least he isn't having EIGHT teeth pulled all at once. Yeah, I had EIGHT teeth pulled all at once when I got my braces at 23 years of age. 4 wisdom teeth and 4 molars. My lee-tol mouth just couldn't handle all those choppers.

Then I was drooling all over myself and completely drugged up on pain meds for the next 3 days. I was a mess! I had to have friends come over to help me since I lived alone. It was quite embarrassing and very painful.

Ug.

But I'm sure Hoop will be JUST fine. ;)

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger janet said...

good luck, hoop...many milkshakes are good medicine. just dont drink it with a straw.

and the website? major cool.

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger Nettie said...

That site was incredible! Hoop, for bleeding, place a tea bag on the offending area. If you don't like tea, watch the saliva run down the tea bag string on to your lap. Now that's entertainment! Tink, take care of yourself darlin. I hope you're not getting sick.

P.s. Best wishes for Hoop. Had an impacted bugger taken out last year. Take the pills and rest!

I had all four out too. Got toally knowcked out for it. Me and pudding were very good friends for a few days...

you are too funny as always,
a boob growing out of your forhead
I think you should patent that one!

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

Hoop will be JUST FINE. They give you good pain meds before and after.

If that guy had been staring at me in traffic, I would have started to pick my nose. It works every time.

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger Penelope Anne said...

Good luck Hoop, I need to do that at some point this year too...need to pay the dentist from last procedure first.
I loved the rant about the guy in traffic. I have a bad habit of telling people to "read between the lines"

i had one of mine out recently. it inspired this and introduced me to ol grandad

There you go teasing all the boys again, Tink.

Don't go putting Capn' Crunch in Hoop's Slim Fast.

Good Luck Hoop.

I hate it when I can feel people staring at me on the train. BEing of my ethic appearence I'm often offended by the way people act around me and my backpack that has all of a jumper, my wallet, mobile, sudoku puzzles and a book entitled The English. Omg, be very afraid, indeed.

Idiots!

P.S. Awesome link. Did not expect that.

Hugs and best wishes to Hoop, you keep yourself warm and drink juice, and the perve, well, honey, you are hella cute! Can you blame the guy for being struck dumb by your beauty?

 
At 25 January, 2008, Anonymous susan said...

I was in my mid-thirties when my wisdom teeth were pulled. They really had to dig for them so they gave me extra good drugs. I don't remember any pain at all!

Give Hoop extra hugs...after you brush your teeth go take away that yummy steak smell..

 
At 25 January, 2008, Blogger Christy said...

I have seen that brilliant site before. It is awesome right down to the flames.

Poor Hoop. Wisdom teeth removal is the pits. I hope all turns out well. =o)

I swear we need a Post it Note tag gun to shot at people that are just rude drivers. THat would be so much fun!

Hope the teeth thing goes well. Ugh.

 
At 25 January, 2008, Blogger Ginni Dee said...

I still have all my wisdom teeth and my dentist told me I should have them all pulled. HA! She can forget it. I've had them this long and I'm keeping them! They are healthy and not causing any problems. And they are NOT here for her job security!!!

I hate men who stare. I just want to do something mean to them. LOL I won't say what. Get a clue men (and it's usually UGLY men)...glance, peek, look for a moment, but don't stare, ogle or otherwise make a fool of yourself!!

Remember...straws are absolutely VERBOTEN after wisdom tooth extraction. The suction increases the chance of dry socket. And ohmygod! the pain! Ice cream, pudding, scrambled eggs, yogurt, mashed potatoes with butter, jello. Hope all goes well!

 
At 25 January, 2008, Blogger rudecactus said...

Ouch. I wish Hoop luck. That's no fun.

 
At 29 January, 2008, Blogger TheBirdman33 said...

I did mine 2 at a time. I had one very bad recovery and that time I felt nothing during the procedure and the other time the procedure was a lot rougher but the recovery was fine.
