Hi.  Oh hi.  I’m high.  I just took 6 pills.  6 pills is a lot.

But I’m alive and minus wisdom teeth.

I thought I wrote a post explaining about being high earlier but I can’t find it?  Where are you little entry about being high?  Did I dream you?  Did you know that I have 61 unpublished entries in my draft file?  That’s a lot, right?  I’m tempted to publish all of them right now just to freak you all out but I feel like I’d regret it a lot once I sobered up because seriously?  Not so good. 

So I got some laughing gas and then I was all “This stuff is poorly named.  I don’t feel like laughing at all.”  Then they started an IV of “the good stuff” and suddenly I felt an overwhelming urge to laugh and I got stuck in a giggle loop where you try to stop laughing and it just makes you worse like when you’re at a funeral and you’re laughing so hard at something you shouldn’t be laughing at and so you start shaking and tearing up  and everyone thinks you’re grieving and taking it really hard but in actuality you’re laughing about how funny the word “c*nt” is.  Is “actuality” a word?  Because I use it all the time in my head but not out loud.  Also, I pronounce it with a british accent.  In my head.  C*nt.  Ha!

So anyway, the surgery was fine except that I got super pissed off that they wouldn’t give me my teeth because I wanted to sell them on ebay like Corey Haim did but they said they already threw them away.  Bastards.  (Also pronounced with an English accent.)  Then I got in the car and threw up out the window and the dentist assistant had to come out and change out my gauze in the parking lot while I acted like a total idiot.  It was much like being back in college but with more dental assistants.

After that I fell asleep for the rest of the day and Victor woke me up at midnight to tell me someone was sneeking around our house.  I was all “Something’s sneeking around in our house?  Like a leprechaun?” and he was all “No, drunky.  Someone’s OUTSIDE the house” and he grabbed the riot gun and ran outside.  And I sat there thinking that he was never going to be able to shoot a lepreachan because those things are freaking nimble.  So I find the phone and dial 9 and 1 and wait until I hear a gunshot before I dial the other 1 and then I see Victor lugging in a giant box.  Turns out that our neighbor signed for a package and was just leaving it on our porch.  It also turns out that I’d pressed memory and 1 accidentally and left a really weird muttery message on my work voicemail about leprechauns. 

Anyway, I’m ouchy and need more drugs.  Oh and you know what?!  Turns out I didn’t have wisdom teeth on top.  Just on bottom.  When they told me that I yelled “KICK-ASS!” and some kid down the hall started laughing his ass off.  Then the giggle loop started again.  Also, I every time I say “Guess what?” to Victor he’s all “You didn’t have wisdom teeth on the top of your mouth?  Because you’ve told me that like nine times already.”  I’m all “Really, nine times?” and he’s like “Yeah, nine times.”  and then I think of Ferris Beuller when Principal Roony tells Ferris’s mother that Ferris has been absent nine times and she all “Nine times?” and he’s all “Nine times!” and then I start laughing again but I’m too high to explain why it’s so funny and Victor makes me go back to bed. 

Hey did you know I have a really big announcement to make that I can’t make yet?  Because I do and it will BLOW.  YOUR. MIND.  Or possibly you won’t care at all.  

I’ll probably delete this whole post when I sober up.

    Hang in there! The leprechauns will be gone soon.

  2. High from the land of high too (I had an “incident” roller skating on Tues). My world doesn’t have leprechauns,only a lot of inappropriate passing out in the middle of the floor. You’re so lucky! Can I join your high hi? I’ll even dress like a leprechaun. But if your dang husband shoots me, I’ll be pisssed. I’m just saying…..

  3. Aunt Jemima and the Miami Dolphin’s 1986 starting offensive line want to make you an omelet. Only it’s a special omelet made out of cartoon flowers and Pippi Longstocking cartwheels. If you really took six pills, this all makes sense.

    Maybe six pills was four too many. Just a guess though.

  8. OMG! You are f&cking hilarious. I just found oyu a few weeks ago but you make me LOL, really. Love your writing. Please don’t delete this post.

    My favorite part of going to the dentist is the laughing gas. It makes me feel like I just drank four margaritas and have a good buzz going (actually, it only takes one margarita on an empty stomach). I giggle and giggle and everything (listening, pain) feels a few seconds behind. That’s from the laughing gas, not the margaritas. My hygenist has told me that she has had some men fall asleep while on the “gas” and her favorite, some guy got frisky while inhaling the “gas” and grabbed her ta-ta’s!!!!

  9. My wisdom teeth are in a little brown envelope in a drawer in the living room. I’ve been thinking about making them into earrings to wear at Halloween. Since I had four, maybe I should send you two. Just to be fair.

    Jodi’s last blog post..AMAZING.

  10. I only had 3 wisdom teeth. I had them removed with a local only because I was pregnant when I had them removed! I wish I still had them so that I could go and have them removed and get high! (kidding) I’m with Clint, we need to keep you high so that you can keep us laughing!

    If I send you my mailing address, will you send me some of those pills? Sounds like 6 will be enough.

    Jennifer H’s last blog post..A penny’s worth

  17. What is the big announcement? Don’t even say its that you didn’t have any top wisdom teeth.

    yep, 6 pills, just right.

  18. delete this post and i will kill you! hahahaha this is SO what my post would have been like, had i had a blog when i got my wisdom teeth out!

    except, after they gave me the laughing gas, they sprayed my hand with some “cold” spray to numb it before they put the IV in. i was all “MOTHER FUCKER!” haha whoops.

    also? i totally flirted with and asked out the oral surgeon. the married oral surgeon…

    and the bastards (which i also say with a british accent) didn’t give me my teeth either. fuckers

    Biddy’s last blog post..shut right up!

  19. Jenny…you’re so pretty. {pats Jenny’s head, much like a lhasa apso}

    This post leaves me with questions, for example did your husband actually shoot the neighbor???

    Oh, and I’m sending you the bill for my chiropractor because you made me laugh so f*cking hard I sprained my vertebrae!!! And I can’t count the number of times I’ve sat at a funeral laughing about a “c*nt” ; )

    Should I be scared that I thought the thing about c*nt was funny. And the “kick ass.” And the “NINE times.”? I swear I’m stone cold sober. Well, maybe I’ve just had a *tad* bit of wine.

    Dude, you need to get high again tomorrow & publish those 61 draft posts!


    You’re killing me here, Jenny. Damn you.

    Ooh & I have a present for you that will be on my blog on Monday…. (So, there. I get to torture you back!)

    Omg…this was freakin’ funny!!! Do not delete! At the expense of your pain and suffering, wait your high…there is no pain and suffering!! well anyway…thanks a million for the laughs!!

  27. DON’T DELETE IT! I LOVED IT! I am still laughing! I can’t decide which is better- the riot gun/911 part or the “KICK-ASS!” part… oh, the tears… LMAO!

    Shades’s last blog post..Aggravation Is:

  28. My wisdom teeth were too smashed up to keep, but the drugs were nice… This all sounds so familiar from last month when I started the diclectin. The world is pretty funny when you’re high. I don’t know why I never tried drugs before that, to be honest.

    Is the big announcement that you only had wisdom teeth on the top?

    kittenpie’s last blog post..Remember, You Asked…

  29. See, I knew you were only half-wise. like my new word? Just made it up. And, to think, I’ve not had any drugs. Now, THAT’s truly frightening. LOL Take it easy. Try not to kill hubby or anything else while you’re high (it’d be messy..or so I hear). 😉

  30. Oh, Hell, you make me laugh!

  31. I felt high just reading this post. You made my day, I totally needed that buzz. In actuality your blog is better than laughing gas. Like nine times better.

  32. Hehe… What a great post. I’m excited to hear what your big news is…

    seven’s last blog post..I ? Feet.

  33. Shit I wish I was that funny when I had mine out. I was all ‘I hate you dentist, and your freaking dog’ and then giggled all the way home till the pain killers wore off. Husband took me to the emergency room to get some more meds and cause I was acting all in pain they assumed I was a druggie and called the police. Then, when it couldn’t get any better, my breast feeding boobs exploded all over the cop.
    Good times, good times.

    Kelley’s last blog post..Saturday silliness

  34. is the announcement that you’re pregnant with the leprechaun’s love child? and that it will have 9 teeth?

    it’s after 2 AM here and i still haven’t filled easter baskets. dude.

  35. No fair! When I had mine pulled they weren’t impacted so I didn’t get any of the good stuff.

    Leprechauns are nimble. You were wise to warn him.

    PS. Victor didn’t fire the gun, thank God. He just waved it around our quiet neighborhood like a loon.

  42. Oh my, I LOVE laughing gas! If only I could get some for the house…

    Damn Leprechauns, I think they stole our Easter eggs.

    Kylie’s last blog post..No such thing

  43. yes! high blogging. you’re the best. i hoped you would do this. love this entry — do not delete it when you sober up.

    feel better soon. and until then keep writing us.

  46. Why would you say ‘actuality’ in a british accent? I mean, I tried it, doesn’t really sound any different. Wait. Maybe I say it with a british accent all the time. Shit. I’m not british! People will think I am pretentious. Oh My God! I am pretentious. I am in actuality a pretentious bastard! But, at least i’m not one of those freaks with no wisdom teeth on the top half of their mouth. Those people are weird. And stuff.

    MichaelTAdams’s last blog post..TT Easter edition!

  47. wow…
    drugs are goooood 😉
    Thursday was my day to get a wisdom tooth removed that had been bugging me for a long time… yeah I know only one… but kind of leaves your skull slightly sore.
    Granted I didn’t have quite the experience you had on the way home but hey I good some drugs for pain and then the other bottle with *really* good drugs for the pain.
    I didn’t take more than one of the really good drugs but man I was out big time and didn’t sense anything around me… Until I got up at 5 in the morning to find the bathroom and got lost on my way through the bedroom wondering where I was and where the bathroom went…
    Yeah that was slightly weird… but looking back … geee.

    Despite everything I am glad that sucker is out and not causing me trouble anymore 🙂

    Anyway I can see how people can get addicted but it seems to easy to get those heavy duty drugs. If I got 2-3 pills that would be plenty to get past the worst pain. But actually I got a prescription for 20 with 1 refil… dang… that’s 40 pills of weirdness… sooo not needed.

    but returning to the real world 🙂 happy easter.

    peter’s last blog post..Confusing or funny

  50. On the way home from my first knee surgery, I hallucinated we were driving through a desert canyon-and it was winter in Balitmore. I much prefer the liquid stuff they gave me the second time-I laughed my fool head off until I passed out! That was FUUUUN!!

    Claudia’s last blog post..have you wondered…

  51. So, Victor missed the leprechaun and hit the neighbor?

    You must never delete this post – or if you do, print it out and nail it to the wall in your office because some days you’re gonna NEED this. Like I did when I read it. Now I won’t kill my neighbor – who totally pissed me off while I was out of town.

    Sayre’s last blog post..The Results are In

  52. I still have some funny pills left from my bone graft surgery. Maybe if I take some, the giant bunny with the pink basket will eat the leprechaun. Leprechauns are scary.

  56. Oh, this is just mean. You have made me laugh hysterically and I’m only four days out from emergency abdominal surgery to remove a freakin’ HUMONGOUS cyst filled with I-kid-you-not TWO LITERS of fluid (that I didn’t even know was there!), and I’ve got three incisions, and today was my first day without pain meds. And I am laughing and cursing at the same time. It’s quite a combo.

    This is why I love you, because I just can’t hate you for it.

    markira’s last blog post..St. Patty’s Day surprise

  57. Also, I’m pretty sure I propositioned the extremely cute anesthesiologist…the extremely cute MARRIED WITH FOUR CHILDREN anesthesiologist. ‘Cause I started talking about him before they gave me the good drugs, while I was just on the patient-controlled morphine drip.

    And then in recovery he came to see how I was doing and said, “You said some really embarrassing things in there,” and I was all horrified and he said, “just kidding” but I bet he’s not.

  61. p.s. glad you made it out alive from your surgery.

  62. I was thinking of you as I brushed my teeth earlier. I get here and see this and thing…. Yeah, you’re ok. They took the teeth but not the wisdom. 😉

    The only leprecauns I like are on cereal boxes.

    Take care! 🙂

    simplypink’s last blog post..suddenly I see

    Don’t delete the post, you are fucking hilarious!!

    Oh, and don’t worry about the leprechauns, I took care of ’em for ya, it is the fucking ninjas you need to watch out for. HEY! Maybe the ninjas STOLE your teeth? No?

    Funny post. The leprechauns remind me of a dream I had last night but I’m not going to tell anyone b/c I hate when people tell me their dreams unless I’m in their dreams.

    And plus, my dream was way scarier, and not very funny.

    Lisa’s last blog post..Not for the faint of heart-seriously you may want to look away if you value your sanity

  85. When I got my teeth yanked, the last thing the dentist said to me before I went to sleep was, “When you wake up you’ll be in a different room. But don’t worry; we don’t carry you, you walk.” So I started cracking up thinking about how friggin stupid I was going to look stumbling down the hallway to this “other room.” Then, lights out.

    When I came to I heard my Mom saying, “…I don’t know honey, I didn’t see you.” And then I felt myself say, “Boy, I must’ve looked pretty funny walking down that hall.” And she said, “I don’t know honey, I didn’t see you.”

    Apparently, this had been going on for 10 minutes. Also apparently, I’m one hell of a conversationalist whilst waking up from surgery. Hoot!

  92. When I was effed up after I got my wisdom teeth out, my husband decided it was a good time to convince me to have another baby.

    He’s six now and some days, I like to have my teeth back.

    Jaybird’s last blog post..Monday Fluff

  93. 1. – I think you should get high before you write your posts more often. Hilarious.

    2. – If and when I move in next door to you. Remind me never to leave a package on your doorstep at night.

    Lotta’s last blog post..Happy Happy Mail Time!

  94. I’ll take some of whatever you’re having, please.

    I am so glad I am not the only person who laughs at inappropriate times!

    Devilish Southern Belle’s last blog post..Wow….

  95. OOHHHH! Seeing others reminiscing about having their teeth out, and being out of it, reminded me of something. I didn’t even remember walking from the car into the house. My mom said they took me out of the dentist office in a wheel chair, but I didn’t remember a thing. So my sister convinced me that they probably had their way with me in the dentist office while I was out. As a sixteen year old I was mortified by the thought! The same thought that went through my mind again when I had surgery 3 months ago. My sister messed with my head!

  96. You did have teeth on top. They lied to you. Where are they?

    Ed Schipul’s last blog post..Regarding the economy of the United States on March 22, 2008

  97. This…

    “…Turns out I didn’t have wisdom teeth on top. Just on bottom. When they told me that I yelled “KICK-ASS!”…”

    and this…

    “…I’d pressed memory and 1 accidentally and left a really weird muttery message on my work voicemail about leprechauns..”

    Might just be the two funniest things I’ve ever read (this week).

    Also, having your wisdom teeth CUT OUT OF YOUR HEAD is THE WORST.

    Jennifer’s last blog post..What I Like About Texas

  98. Hi! Sorry to hear about the wisdom teeth, especially the part about how they threw them away without even asking you if you wanted them! Reminds me of the lady who sued the hospital for not allowing her to take home her placenta. (BTW, she won. I think you have a case here.)

    Anyhoo, I had mine out several years back and it is NO joke. It hurts! When my friend had hers out, she got addicted to the painkillers. Seriously.

    Hope you have a speedy recovery 🙂

    Mommy off the Record’s last blog post..Hellooooo

  99. Like college but with more dental assistants. . . .

    I peed a little laughing at that line!

    Mary’s last blog post..Happy Easter

  100. too late to delete the post, because we now all you lack wisdom…………..
    teeth on top

    Pamela’s last blog post..Fun Monday – The A to Z shuffle

  101. uh… now all know…

    Pamela’s last blog post..Fun Monday – The A to Z shuffle

  102. Good Lord, girl. I am the 102nd commenter? Damn, you’re hot stuff.

    So…now I know why you wrote, “Yay for anesthesia!”

    And yup. Yay for anesthesia.

    Did you know that I was born without wisdom teeth? That makes me either stupid OR more evolved than the rest of you. Heh.

    slouching mom’s last blog post..Negative

  103. I started laughing after the opening sentence. But not laughing AT you. Laughing WITH you. Also? Can’t wait to hear the news…whatever it is.

    AB’s last blog post..If you’re seeing this on Monday then it’s my birthday. What a thrill.

  104. Laughing my ass off! I just love wisdom tooth extraction stories, and yours did not disappoint!

    erin’s last blog post..Happy Easter

  105. How’s the recovery going? Wishing you and the escaped leprechaun well!

    Lady M’s last blog post..Lacking that Pastel Easter Dress Picture

  106. You’re friggin’ hysterical when you blog doped. Because, normally, I don’t think you’d bother writing c*nt.

    Also, I think Victor rocks for having a riot gun. Did you guys get to eat a UPS guy? They’re good eatin’. A little stringy in the thighs, but otherwise top-notch.

    One last thing … you could always sell someone ELSE’s teeth on ebay. Who’d know the difference? I suppose when someone tried to clone you a thousand years from now they’d be surprised to discover you were a middle-aged Asian man.

  107. 1) GLAD you didn’t delete the post ’cause I’ve been busy and I’d have missed one heckuva good time.


    3) This is definitely one of those times your readers/commentors didn’t come close to keeping up with your original post…not by a mile.

    4) But isn’t it more than a little bit insulting that they kept saying “Drugged out Bloggess is waaaaaay more bitchin’ than Sober Jenny”??? I’d kick all their a$$e$.

    5) It’s obvious you were on drugs…forget flying leprechauns and cun*t and British word-dropping, you had typos.

    {{hugs}} hope you’re feelin’ better :).

  108. Ohmyword…I spelled the dayem thing and threw in an asterisk!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m totally mortified.

    Where the heck is a PREVIEW for comments when you need it???

    Robin’s last blog post..Schoolhouse Rock Meets Fun Monday (or Life’s Little Instructions for Parents)

  109. Yeah so did you husband shoot the neighbor or the leprechaun?

    Maggie’s last blog post..Happy Easter!

  110. Ferris was on last night. I watched it, of course, and thought of you a lot. Nine times!

    markira’s last blog post..St. Patty’s Day surprise

  111. You really are hilarious. And I am not so that is all I will say. It really made me laugh.

  112. What I wouldn’t give to be high with you.

    On completely legal, dentist prescribed medicine, of course.

    Because it’s a well known fact I don’t inhale.


    Redneck Mommy’s last blog post..Dear Self

  113. At least you’re charming when you’re high. After I got my wisdom teeth out, I almost snapped a suburban housewife in half because she was cleaning Trader Joe’s out of Fage yogurt. Seriously. I scared her into leaving two. I bared my gums and told her it was all I could eat.

    Becki’s last blog post..What are you doing right now?

  114. PLEASE don’t delete this. Because I am still laughing my ass off, and I had to read parts out loud to my husband in between snorts.

    Kat’s last blog post..Generation Y

  115. Well your 114 comments would suggest that someone other than you finds this funny. (see your tags)
    btw:I am still sniggering over the nimble leprechaun…..

    arizaphale’s last blog post..In Celebration

  116. The fact you used the c-word just made you my new favorite blogger … that and the fact that you seem to really enjoy being high. Awesome.

    Robin’s last blog post..Austin fashion

  117. NINE TIMES. A phrase very often spoken in our household.

    I love GoingLikeSixty’s greeking.

    preppygirl’s last blog post..Two Weeks?

  118. “The Giggle Loop” is one of my favorite Coupling episodes. 😉

    Gypsy’s last blog post..On hiding

  119. Ha! When newly transplanted from the Midwest to North Carolina, my love and I once pretended to be Marge and Herm from Fargo for the entire weekend camping in the mountains. Seriously. We pulled it off. I love screwing with strangers.

    And yes, 6 is too many. But OHHH SOOO FUN!

    k8’s last blog post..The End

  120. Oh Guy K – you led me to this funny woman so I could laugh as i kept on reading…..
    with the mute on as I ostensibly listen to a very serious conference call that has gone on way too long (they are circling around the same topic for the 38th time


    Kare Anderson’s last blog post..How You Can Prompt Us to Feel or Do Something

  121. …they’d be surprised to discover you were a middle-aged Asian man.

    That’s our Jenny:

    Secret – Asian Man!
    Secret – Asian Man!
    With a head that’s not too sober,
    And a half-dozen pills in her hand.


    Ed T.’s last blog post..It is All About the House

  122. Too funny…I used to love laughing gas but the last couple of times I found it too intense. After reading this I might have to try it again at my next visit…

    I can’t believe you’re one of the Mama Drama bloggers, that’s so funny cause I read it from time to time.

    Kat’s last blog post..But What if I Suck???

  123. Hi. High. I’m new here. And I loved this…is it wrong that I could so totally relate? Actuality…that’s one that I’ve questioned too. Must be a word if others think it too.

    Deb’s last blog post..ME, NOT ME

  124. Dude, I only have one! But it’s leveled out by the fact that they had to pull three others (a top molar on each side, plus one lower in the very front (yeah, had to go to prom with a gap infront, sexay!)) to even fit the rest of my teeth in a somewhat aligned fashion.

    They never gave me the good stuff back then, but have a gallbladder stone! Man, I was blasted! AND I had a 1 month old infant to take care of. Oh man, the times!

    Is it wrong that this post makes me kinda nostalgic?

    Gry’s last blog post..Next time I’ll bring my camera

  125. I laughed harder at your response to the comments than the actual post. You are so silly.

    Anglophile Football Fanatic’s last blog post..Leader of the Pack

  126. This post (again, I’m crying from laughing) reminds me that I need to write about the side effects of the “quit smoking” shot that I got a few years ago. I also like to call this the “I could have flushed the money down the toilet but then six foot tall black spiders wouldn’t have chased me” shot which is what the post will be about.

    It is priceless.

    Jarrard’s last blog post..Seriously???

  127. […] And then, God, Jesus, Ninjas and Zombies (and mythical hobbits too), The Bloggess came out and made me laugh … niiiiine times. She was a little drunk reading about being a little High. […]

  128. My wisdom teeth were grown into my jawbones,so I had to have surgery, I was totally knocked out to have them removed, but I remember coming to and saying “Now, do I get the good stuff?”
    I did, and I stayed with it far longer than the pain stayed with me.
    funny post! you made me laugh out loud at work!

    Fortune Cookies’s last blog post..Yapping, Bitching, and …Hot Meat?

  129. […] Jenny Lawson: “High” […]

  130. […] This made me spit out the water I was drinking just now.  And since I’m not supposed to be reading blogs at work, I had to pretend that I just read something -really- funny on the install quote I’m working on.  That’s hard. […]

  131. OMG!! I laughed so freaking much and so hard that I had tears, at work of all places! This post is the funniest! Thanks, I needed that! Poor neighbor! LOL

    Amy Vittonel’s last blog post..Save the DRAMA for your Momma.. oh, that’s ME!

  132. Oh god… I’m at work trying not to laugh, and I’m laughing so hard anyway, and tears are streaming down my face. YOU ARE SO GODDAMN FUNNY WOMAN! I love your crazy, funny, weird, yet talented mind. (I think that makes ME the crazy one.)

    I worked as a dental surgery assistant for a year, so I’ve seen that procedure many many times. People get SO f’ing goofy! Oh, and did you know that sometimes, you don’t have all 4 wisdom teeth? Sometimes you only have two. Or even just one. Just a little side factoid for you… 😉

  133. Oh please can I be your friend? Pretty, pretty please? Thanks.

    Hippo Brigade’s last blog post..…and so it goes

  134. Dude. Leprechauns are creepy. That I might actually consider bidding on your teeth had they been on eBay, downright FRIGHTENING.

    mommypie’s last blog post..Beer cans, biplanes and the intricacies of networking

  135. HILARIOUS! Step Away From The Delete Button….C*unt is my favourite swear word but said in an Irish accent. Did the leprechauns leave the present? was it a crock of gold…or more pills? Have just stumbled on your blog and looks like I’ve a lot of catching up to do..Hilarious.

  136. When I had my wisdom teeth out I dreamt in Spanish. And you know when you get out of your drug induced coma they make you pee before they let you leave? So I was peeing and there was a nurse in there with me who was trying to be all helpful and saying calming things, like “It’s alright dear” and “You’ll be fine” and I wondered what the fuck she was talking about as I realized I had fallen ass over ankles and was vag up on the bathroom floor, laughing hysterically because it was the funniest damned thing to ever happen to me.

    Denise recently posted salad.

  137. PS: I am the crazy person reading every post you’ve ever written. I’m sorry about your cat, which was two years ago to you but I just found out about it and feel crushed.

    Denise recently posted salad.

  138. We had our wisdom teeth out at around the same time, it appears– except mine was a few months later and involved the Beijing Opening Ceremonies. Add everything you just mentioned to a trillion Chinese people, athletes, and strange music and you have my experience. Brilliant!

    Meg recently posted I suck at the internet sometimes....

  139. I’m working my way backward through your posts (weird I know, but it’s easier to scroll that way). ANYWAY, my cousins and I are no longer allowed to sit near each other during funerals because we are notorious for making each other laugh. At our great-aunt’s funeral I got to laughing so hard (silently, mind you, I do have SOME class) I had to leave the room and “check on the children” so that I could get myself under control. The old ladies were NOT fooled and glared at us the entire service. We were duly chastened. Until the next funeral.

  140. Really? They didn’t let you keep your teeth? Because when I woke up from my removal the assistant was shoving them in my face like that was definitely the first thing I wanted to see when waking up from having my mouth cut open. You want mine?

  141. 143

    1. Riot gun? Really? I take back my ‘red neck’ comment from earlier.
    2. But only if you have one in case of the zombie rising. Then it’s totally ok.
    3. I have no wisdom teeth to remove so I either have no wisdom or am highly evolved. It’s debatable.
    4. My Dad keeps our baby teeth under the house. Classy. If there is ever a raid / fire at their house the cops are going to be all “What the fuck happened down here? What did you do to the children?”
