Teething at 31?

This is the first time in my life I've been a late bloomer. Sorry for the lack of posts, but recently a straight-growing wisdom molar decided to take a sudden left turn into my jaw and cheek, causing me extreme pain until my dentist yanked the fucker out this morning. I've spent the last 72 hours in dental hell, but this morning waiting patiently as he and his assistant tag-teamed the tooth for the better part of an hour until it finally came loose making an unforgettable *thock!* sound as it released from my jaw had to take the cake. That, and communicating with the pharmacist using kitty stationary.

In all seriousness my dentist presented me with the cleaned tooth in a little box with the kind of pride usually reserved for newborns, exclaiming "this is the largest tooth I've ever removed from a woman!" I sincerely hope that is not my 15 minutes of fame. And I was about to tell him to keep it until I looked at it and I have to say it's pretty impressive. I won't post a photo of the tooth (which is an inch long and at least 3/4 of an inch wide) because the two people I have shown the tooth to have both gagged. I figure that's a sign I should keep it to myself.

So, yeah. I'm sure I'll have some stuff to say about dental soft diets after this, but stay tuned, because we've got Toiv's birthday to talk about, winter salads, and much more. Talk soon!
