This world is full of some rather annoying things, right?
Like people, and mosquitoes, and lizards that come running across the walls of your room and freak you out for no good reason. Bloody lizards…
But, more than anything, the one thing that has been annoying me the most over these past few weeks is the dull, throbbing, constant pain that accompanies the rise of a wisdom tooth.
Now, I am no stranger to pain. I get hurt more often in any given month than most people probably would over years. I have had to endure several nagging chronic injuries too.
However, this pain is different.
It just does not stop.
No matter what else I try to do, it is always there, always making its presence known.
Short of taking powerful painkillers every few hours—something I would refuse to do—there is no way to find any respite from this uninterrupted torment.
I wonder if this is the price for wisdom.
I wonder if this is worth it.
