A Wee Piece of the Olde Skull

I was going to write something grandiose and thought-provoking this week, but my dentist told me I had to refrain from smoking for a couple of days after he pulled my wisdom tooth. Which actually didn’t bugger up my weekend as much as my body’s initial reactions to having a small part of it removed. But now that I’m feeling much better and am relatively confident that I can go a whole hour without fainting, I give you a visual extravaganza of the small part in question. This guy was lodged in an almost horizontal position within my gum tissue, but that wasn’t the only reason why it had to be removed…

This is its good side.
That’s some right filthy-looking wisdom. I guess that could be its eyepatch.
