Mark, my ever-loving boyfriend for 3 years now, has been in a lot of physical pain lately. But he just keeps on trying to act all macho… *rolls eyes*
One of the constant occasional visits of pain was from his wisdom tooth. I know what some of you are already thinking- “That stupid, stupid, stupid boy.” Ah, yes. I do agree. I warned about the excruciating pain he would suffer if he did not attend to it. Those were like… Resignation letters from his wisdom tooth. It was already going, “Dear Sir, I need to be taken out of your body now. Thank you for having me.” But he chose to ignore it. So what happens? The wisdom tooth had a whole bitch fit and gave him a really hard time. So his mother panicked, planned an emergency surgery at an excruciating cost for her darling son at their trusty dentist. According to X-rays, Mark had the worst kind of teeth. Well, you can see upfront that he has crooked teeth (I always prayed if I were to have his baby, please let him/her have my teeth… :P) … but his wisdom teeth were downright weird!
See the image on top? That’s how his wisdom teeth were growing! :O Apparently it isn’t all that uncommon; many people suffer from this as well. So Mark went all the way! Y’know how every person has 4 wisdom teeth? Okay, Mark wasn’t half as filled with gusto about it. But he decided to just charge ahead!!! …and remove all wisdom teeth. They’re more like wisdoom teeth. Hehehehehe. 😀 During the hour-long operation, Mark was put under General Anaesthesia… While the dentist was drilling away on him, I went to get a massage. (It was good.) When the clinic called me to tell me the operation was over, I swiftly made my way back to the clinic like the good girlfriend I am. To find this… He was snoring. While the dentist and I were discussing how the operation went, precautions to take etc… Then finally when he woke up, he became my worst nightmare… He was still a little high from the drugs… And started babbling nonsense as soon as the nurses brought him out to the lounge. Yes, his whole face was horridly swollen and went on & on- getting plenty of not-so-pleasant looks from other patients. And he somehow managed to carry out a conversation entirely on his own (when it was supposedly with me), but I wasn’t with him- I was at the desk sorting things out! So I’ll run you through the memorable nonsensical things he did- I won’t bore you with the not-so-fun ones. 1. He banged his head against the clinic glass behind & fell asleep. Totally voluntary on his part. You can see in the picture above, his head was supposed to be rested… but he decided to lean back- bang his head quite hard for I don’t know what reason and snored for about 2 seconds. Needless to say, other patients were like, “What the fuuuuck?” Then he woke up and started babbling again. 2. He pulled out the gauze in his mouth & placed it on the sofa. Another patient actually gasped when she saw him do that- I’m assuming she’s the clean sort. Anyway, he couldn’t even talk properly… Mark: Whey ish mai moof sho foo? (Why is my mouth so full?) Then he stuck his finger into his mouth & pulled out the gauze which was soaked thoroughly with blood.
Mark: Blaaaad! (Blood!) *places it on the sofa’s armrest*
I quickly grabbed a tissue and carefully picked it up, apologising to other patients & the staff on his behalf… Damage control.
But the one who was really pissed was the dentist.
3. He challenged the dentist’s choice of putting clean gauze back in his mouth
Mark was quickly brought back into the dentist’s room when the nurses saw what he did.
Dentist: What? Why did you take out the gauze! You need it!
Mark: Ar eu shure? (Are you sure?)
Oh, it was painful to listen to.
4. He insisted on holding onto his mobile phone
Mark: Gim me mai fone! (Give me my phone!)
Me: Are you sure you can hold onto it?
Mark: Ai av wights! (I have rights!)
How could I deny such basic human rights?
So I handed him his mobile…
And just when I placed it on his hand, he dropped it.
5. He saw a “Giant” supermarket and wanted to go inside to buy his favourite ice-cream
Okay, this one requires a little bit of background story.
Recently Mark has been obsessed with Coconut Potong ice-cream sticks. The problem is whenever he buys a box home and puts it in the fridge, his dad who also finds it super delicious- does him the favour of enjoying the entire box for him.
And apparently it’s quite the popular yet inaccessible flavour- can’t find it at every supermarket and they’re often sold out.
So every time Mark sees the chance to stock up- he does.
