It’s wisdom teeth removal day, and Jamie is getting it done as a ‘real, old, adult’ at the ripe age of 31 – because they have just started to bother him.
To prepare, he has been watching Youtube videos of people coming out of the anesthesia. This makes sense, because one of his biggest fears, is becoming one of those people.
He is mortified at the thought of not being in control of his thoughts, or his words, and ending up clutching a roll of duct tape just in case his head falls off (the latest, and most hilarious video that we’ve watched together).
I understand fears – I mean, you are talking to the person with an irrational fear of seaweed. Were I to fall in a lake filled with seaweed I would probably just give up and sink into the sea of weeds, drowning. Hashtag #worstfearever.
I would never ever publish a video of him, clutching duct tape. (but in all seriousness, I would absolutely take a video to show him after, if he were being crazy). After all, this is the person that pranks me constantly. This potential hilarity? I should totally get to witness it.
As a result, I’ve been banned as the adultier-adult. I’m not going to be the one going with him, to bring him home. I’ve been banned from the dental clinic.
He’s going with his Mom. She’s lovely, took the day off of work, and is taking her biggest kid to get his wisdom teeth out while the kids and I have a meeting this afternoon and head out to the grocery store to stock up on soup… or soft food, or smoothie ingredients.
Here’s hoping she at least takes a covert, hilarious video to share with me.
Edited to add: Error above. He just sent me a text message letting me know that he is 32, and questioning whether I should know how old he is.
