You Can Remove My Tooth, But You Can't Remove My Wisdom!
Machine Man says:
Ok, I didn't quite lose my face, but I AM hungry all the time, a side-effect of eating softer and less. for a week and a half. It was only the one tooth, and it didn't get infected, so I was in very little pain. I WAS, however, in a lot of irritation. I want to use the other side of my jaw, daggnabbit!
So it's in these dark, lean days that I thank my friend X-51 AKA Machine Man for his perspective. It helps.
