Chew on This

Things have been quiet around here, not so much because I’m lazy, but because I can’t eat anything except mush and I’m foggy from pain killers. I had my wisdom tooth out over a week ago and something went awry and it’s not healing. Hmm, maybe I attempted corned beef, hamburgers and a pupu platter a bit too soon. I was being optimistic. After a return visit to the dentist and a new batch of vicodin, I am now back to oatmeal, soup and yogurt. Despite being three pounds lighter (temporarily, I’m sure) I am also greatly saddened, not to mention starving.

Reading about the opening of Num Pang makes me want to cry. I don’t know if I can read food blogs until I can eat real food again.

On the up side, I am just about exactly half-way through the 896-page 2666. A little book learning never killed anyone.

  1. Well, we’re officially twins. Okay, not officially, and we’re not really that close to being twins. But I did have my wisdom teeth out on the 13th (Friday the 13th), which is why I’d been searching for pictures of other sorry souls, for my own blog post.

    ANYWAY, I got them out, all four, and I’m sorry to say I’m feeling better than you sound. But I’ve lived on mashed potatoes and apple sauce, and I’ve been ANNOYINGLY anal with following instructions.

    Since you’re back to mushies, maybe you could try something I liked the first several days: plain yoghurt, apple JUICE, and one banana, blended to a smooth puree. It’s totally drinkable, tastes really yummy, and counts as food (because I totally lost my appetite and cried every time I had to eat with my meds). Swallowing whole gets it done with quicker.

    Good luck!
