Some quick words of wisdom

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Apr 30, 2010 in Randomness

Get your wisdom teeth taken out while you’re young, folks.

A random point, I concede. And yes I’ve officially degenerated into one of those politico-types who talks about frivolous @#$% like good oral hygiene when I could be talking about taxes or education or world peace1 :beatup:

But after a morning trip to the dentist and a half-dozen x-rays — apparently they’re digital now? — I was told I need to have my wisdom teeth removed, because now at 29 years old they’ve finally hit the point where they’re starting to screw up my other teeth.

I’ve got two problems with this:

  1. Law school means limited gainful employment, making this one of the most cash-poor periods of my life; and,
  2. I’m studying for my Torts final exam tomorrow, which includes analyzing wonderful hypos like Patient Smith going to Dr. Oral Surgeon to get his wisdom teeth taken out, getting put to sleep by Dr. Anesthetist… and then never waking up.2)

Needless to say when it comes to TDot’s Great List of Things To Do While In Law School™, wisdom teeth removal doesn’t rank terribly high. Or rank at all actually.

That’s it for tonight since I’ve gotta get back to studying. Not gonna count this entry as a bona fide TDot’s Tips, but take it from me folks — get rid of those wisdom teeth early! :P

Have a great night everybody :D

  1. How eminently appropriate is this emoticon when it comes to a post on dental health? :beatup: []
  2. Pop quiz: who can you sue, and for what? ; []
