It's All Set

I got my vacation put in for my tooth extractions.  Wednesday was fine, but Thursday and Friday were already filled.  The plant has a 10 person per day limit.  But, I talked to my supervisor and told him what was going on.  I said that I would NOT be at work Thursday, whether I used a vacation day or called in sick.  I wasn't going to be there.  He told me to go ahead and put down vacation for Thursday and he would approve it.  Then I told him that I would try to be back Friday, but I couldn't make any promises.  I said that I'd never had any wisdom teeth cut out, so I didn't know what to expect.  I was kind of fudging, because from what I've heard, I won't be able to make it that day, either. 

Anyway, I came home and am watching the NFL draft.  The Dallas Cowboys have selected wide receiver Dez Bryant.  Tim Tebow has gone to the Broncos.  Earl Thomas went to the Seahawks.  Colt McCoy is still out there.  His injury in the National Championship game has dropped his value significantly.  The surprise is that Jimmy Clausen hasn't been drafted yet.  He was expected to go high in the first round.  Well, there are still 4 picks left as I type this.

There has not been an LSU player taken yet.  Brandon LaFell was once thought to be the top WR to be taken this year, but he didn't have a good year, and he didn't have a good combine.  Trindon Holliday is still out there, too, but he was never really thought to be first round pick anyway.  Chad Jones neither. 

Four picks, then I'm going to bed.

Good luck with the extraction.

Actually the post-extraction is really variable. My eldest brother had a bad first day, a couple of 'meh' days and then was fine. My middle brother had a horrible time, including dry socket - he was miserable for a couple of weeks. I felt a little off for the rest of the day and was back at full tilt by the next.

Here's hoping you're more like me than like Bill!

Thanks, Cindy. The doctor told me that with my age where my wisdom tooth is, I have about a 50/50 chance of developing a dry socket. But he said if I do, they have some sort of little plug they can put into it so that it doesn't hurt so much. Still, I'm hoping I'm in the 50% that doesn't get dry socket.
