Don't Call Me Pumpkin


The good news is, I no longer look like a chipmunk storing nuts in my cheeks.


The bad news is, I woke up today with my face looking like a butternut pumpkin!! *Cries*


Worse yet, a loop-sided butternut pumpkin!! *Wails*


One side of my cheeks is much swollen than the other. The ironic thing is, it's the left side, which had a fairly straightforward extraction, that is doing worse than the right side, of which the wisdom tooth had a crooked root and required a much more extensive surgery to remove it.

Bee called the clinic to check if it's normal and the nurse assured him that there is nothing to be worried about.

Since then, he's been constantly mocking me, either by imitating my puffy cheeks or asking me, "Are you sure you're not chewing on something now?"

So much for showering his vulnerable wife with lots of TLC huh? *Rolls eyes*

I've tried my best to avoid looking at my reflection in the mirror. It kinda looks like I've gained 10 pounds on my left cheek alone, or I stuffed a golf ball in my mouth. Or rather, a tennis ball.

If it's Halloween season, I can probably go out in the public and scare small children. :|

From now on, let's just say that I'll never feel the same anymore when someone calls me pumpkin.

Oh dear, that sounds pretty bad. Better book yourself in for tooth extraction as soon as your infection heals.

Think this way. Pumpkin is a nice nickname right (if you don't have a swollen side right now)? :P

Lila said...

LOL...This is a very cute post. Hope you feel better soon, pal. I think you'll still look cute if you look like a chipmunk.:)

Anyway, it's very brave of you to have both wisdom teeth extracted at the same time. Give yourself a pat on the back :). As for your puffy cheeks, dont worry too much. It will definitely go away very soon ;).

Doreen: Um, the swelling was the result of an extraction? And I sure do hope that it isn't an infection! *Touches wood*

Che-Cheh: Oh hun, pumpkin is a sweet nickname ONLY when my face doesn't look like one. :p

Lila: No, sweetie, no one looks cute as a chipmunk at my age. :|

Emotionalistic: I just really wanted to get it over and done with. The common practice these days is to have all four extracted in one setting, so hopefully, these are the last two left for me. *Fingers crossed*

Josephine: Thanks, darl. ^_^

Sdovelly: Here's hoping. :)
