Lost two of my wisdom teeth. I guess I had *ahem* too much wisdom for my own good? Haha.. Definitely not. If I had/have any wisdom at all to begin with, that is (Which I doubt!).
Nah, both of my lower wisdom teeth were impacted – they were growing ‘horizontally’ instead of their normal positions. Thus I had to go to the dentist and get them removed, one at a time.
First the right hand side, dentist had to drill it into 4 different pieces to extract it. (Went with my sister who also had to get hers removed) How fun. Unable to play trombone for a week, and unable to eat properly, besides a swollen mouth, etc.
Then, the moment the right hand side healed, I had to get the left one removed! This time was quite a bit harder to remove, I think it must have been in about 10 different pieces by the time it came out! And it was more painful… And it’s still swollen at this time. Total of 5 jabs…
Which to say, isn’t that bad actually. Better than facing trouble with ‘wisdom’ teeth later on in life. And I didn’t face the horrors that some people go through removing their teeth!
Other happenings –

And finally, as already mentioned, my congratulations to Laura Hammonds, who led the cello section in England’s National Youth Orchestra (Quite prestigious, as far as I know) without any doubt… Well done!
