Little tired today from my late night adventure.
It all started as I was flossing my teeth. Doesn't sound too adventurous, does it? But I accidentally (pun!) dislodged an end of a wire retainer from my eye teeth. So I had this sharp wire thing poking into my tongue.
I used a CD as a makeshift mirror to check out the situation in my mouth. I tried tucking the poking wire down with no luck. I thought about using some duct tape but couldn't figure out how that would help. So I went to the ol' tool box and took out my trusty pliers.
When you don't have dental insurance, sometimes you just have to make do. As I maneuvered the pliers into position in my mouth, I thought about that one scene in the movie Cast Away when Tom Hank's character had to knock a bad tooth out of his own mouth with a rock. I tugged and tugged on the wire until I finally freed it from my mouth.
All in all everything turned out just fine... so much better than my DIY root canal.
