I got my wisdom teeth taken out on Monday.
It wasn’t exactly a David-After-Dentist situation–in fact, I wasn’t even particularly loopy–but I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on the Snapchats that document my post-surgery experience and figured I’d share here too. Each picture only lasted 24 hours on the app, but this post is presumably forever. You’re welcome.
Bonus: a screenshot from my sister’s Snapchat story.
Double bonus: my friend Zack’s hilarious response to my swollen jaw.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from getting my wisdom teeth taken out, it’s that distraction and humor are sometimes better pain relievers than Percocet. It has way fewer side effects, that’s for sure! (Also, side note: after being on Percocet for pain, I seriously don’t understand why people take it recreationally. It just makes me drowsy–but unable to sleep for very long–and dizzy. Not fun.)
