Soup. Yoghurt. Angel Delight. Scrambled eggs – undercooked so still runny. Weetabix – left to soak up all the milk and go mushy. Five states of alertness (sleeping; dozing; watching TV; being on the internet; playing computer games) and six pills a day.
Such are the delights of being deprived of all four wisdom teeth in one go – under general anaesthetic but as a day patient; the nurses couldn't wait to kick me out around lunchtime to make their empty ward even quieter.
I've got a lot of the feeling in my mouth back now – two and a half days later – but half of my tongue and some of my lower lip and gums are still numb. Most frustratingly, I can't talk properly, my tongue still being inconsiderately swollen, so relieving the boredom by calling anybody isn't an option.
