Mind-Numbing Pain + Pain as a Muse+ Catching Football-Sized Hints + Being a Harlot + Where's My $$ Man

I haven't really posted because most of my posts would be like...Kill me please.

Last week, my wisdom tooth was killing me so much. Omg!

It started on Monday with swelling. Tuesday, I was sounding like a 5 year old. Wednesday, I couldn't open my mouth to speak hardly. Thursday, I was at the dentist, desperate for the to just pull the thing. But no! They gave me antibiotics. The tooth didn't fully erupt and so there's a hole in it with bacteria, causing the pain so severe, I swear, I felt it in my entire body.

Since I can't swallow pills, I would put an Excedrin on the hole, drink hot water to dissolve it quickly. Then I would put Anbesol in the hole and then dissolve another Excedrin on top of it again. I did this every 2 hours.

When I told the doctor that, she looked at me equal parts disgusted and horrified.

They gave me liquid penicillin and Children's Motrin since that's the only liquid pain killers they have. Lovely.

The oral surgeon wasn't able to pull (like I was told) so...I have to wait til Friday to go.
Friday, Friday, Friday has been my mantra seeing as I can't even smile for too long since the act of brushing up against my gum is painful and speaking is just - ugh! I'm known for my enunciation. This lisp is depressing.

The pain keeping me up at night has helped me, believe it or not. I force myself to think of something else. Usually, that something else has turned into a story idea. So, yay!

Remember train dude in the last post? Well, as soon as that post was up, he called. Lol

And kept calling...

He called like 5 times in a day. I was flabbergasted. Like, after 2 days of calling, if you don't call me back, I'm over it. Noooooooooo!

After a little over a week of the nonsense, I text(ed) him yesterday.
Me:Please stop calling me. I'm sorry but I don't think we're compatible. Thank you.

-i thought I was doing well since I usually tell dudes to die..-

Him: So intresting that you just judged a book by it's cover. We have not been to a date yet. When I saw you,something said to me you are a lady,now should I doubt my instinct. No. Wouldn't it be nice if we go on a date

-sounds like you judged me by a cover?yup. not taking the bait. -

Me:Not up for debate. I wish you much success in all your future endeavors.

Him: You too but never cut a bridge. Bless

Umm, whatever. I knew if he didn't get to stop calling someone after a week of no response (!!) he wouldn't get where I was coming from.

LOL! Why can't men just get it and move on. I have an ex that refuses to stop calling me even though I stopped picking up over a year ago.
