Toothiness

Well, today I went to the dentist and wow, I get to have all four of my wisdom teeth extracted next Monday. One is broken and infected and causing me a lot of pain, and the doctor said that if they pull my lower ones, the upper ones will grow longer. What??? How can I not have heard of this before? First I get hair growing out of my ears and now my wisdom teeth will get longer if the lower ones get pulled? What other surprises are in store as I get older?

Jim, I had all four of my wisdom teeth taken out (two impacted) the day after Thanksgiving back in 1990. They give you nice pain meds to crash in bed for a couple days though. You should be ready to eat real food in time for Turkey Day.
