Despite the feeble old joke, the header falls down on all counts. My appointment was at 12:30 and the tooth didn’t hurt at all.
In fact it was quite health, as were my gums, but the roots had detached from the bone making it ever so slightly wobbly. I dare say it would have fallen out on its own if left to its own devices, but someone has to keep these impoverished dentists in drill bits.
I don’t know if it’s the after effects of the Novocaine, but a half-forgotten riddle came to mind. Can you work out the missing number in the sequence? It is more logical than numerical.
