The first thing to do when someone tells you they are getting their wisdom teeth removed is share that horror story where your best friend's girlfriend's cousin had to be admitted to the hospital for uncontrollable vomiting and searing pain...

NOT.

In fact, even if keeping it to yourself feels like as though you are sparing me some great secret, I can assure you I am already aware of the risks. My dentist and I went over it extensively. SO SPARE ME THE HORROR STORIES PLEASE.

(As you may have guessed, I am having my wisdom teeth removed. I could have done without all the incredibly scarring anecdotes, thank you.)

ETA: Not really sure why the photo is hidden. Anyone?
