Three (3) Teeth Less.

A few days ago and experiencing considerable discomfort in my lower front teeth, I visited my Dentist. An X-Ray confirmed my worst fears. I had an infection below the gum line in three (3) of my teeth. Several different treatments were suggested: root canal, drilling, filling, antibiotics or ... extractions! Given the cost and time involved, I went for the extractions and now I'm three (3) teeth lighter. I'm having trouble pronouncing certain words and I look like $hit (that's one of the words I can't pronounce BTW). Monday I'm being fitted for a partial and the Doc says all will be made well.
To paraphrase something I once read: I entered this world with no teeth and I'm going to leave this world the same way.
