You can! Please ignore the blood. I'm sure it will wash off.

Dear god. I thought Canada had excellent public medical and dental care?

Danielle Spears said...

Oh, no! I'm assuming that's a metaphor. I know the feeling. That's when you know it's time to go on vacation. Good luck!

I tried to get an appointment on Friday, but the dentist was out of town and couldn't see me until today. But she'll probably have to send me to an oral surgeon anyway, so who knows when that appointment will be.

The pliers look a little better every minute...

@ Danielle

Sadly, no metaphor... more's the pity. You know it's not good when you start thinking "How hard can it be?"

No pain, no gain! But it will be one heck of an expensive trip to the dentist.

Elena Solodow said...

Ouch. Sorry it's an "actual" problem, and not writing-related. Hope you can actually get an appt!

Where do you find these photos, Bryan? That one makes me wince!

Yes, Matt, Canada does have excellent medical care, but dental care depends on whether it's included in your benefits or not. (I'm from the west side of Canada).

If you're using that tool (which looks like it could pull out the nails from wood) then you'd better have a great painkiller on hand.

Ack! Hope you feel better soon...

There's always that hockey skate trick that Tom Hanks used.

I wish you a good dentist, and soon (with painkillers).

Are those Craftsman? Because you can't use anything but Craftsman pliers with the no slip grip.

I mean, be realistic.
