The Morning After

It's ten in the morning, I'm clean and happy, and have just a light ache in the upper-right jaw. Yes! It's the day after the removal of a wisdom tooth. Many thanks to the dentist - the actual operation of taking it out took less time than filling in the pieces of paper telling them that I wasn't allergic to anything! Last night I probably violated all medical rules:
  • I went to the dentist in a fair amount of pain, but pretty well drugged to the eyeballs with OTC pain-killers.
  • After the op I came home and ate (Swedish meatballs and spuds), but was very careful to keep the gauze over the wound.
  • As the numbness wore off I replaced it with a generous amount of Speyside, much to the horror of my poor wife.
It all seemed to work, though. No hangover and little pain this morning.

[Food]
For those challenged at cooking, go to your local IKEA and buy a bag of frozen meatballs! I think you can get pots of sauce too, but if not, there's a good recipe on cooks.com that will get the job done very well - my mushroom-averse son ate it and liked it! Finally, there's always the people who want jam with it! Blueberry will do fine, or redcurrant, or cranberry - just pick a jam or jelly with sourness: strawberry jam is just too sweet!
