A few days ago my gums started hurting.
Really hurting…like stop eating hurting.
It came on pretty suddenly in the evening and by the time I went to bed I was in quite a bit of pain.
To keep my mind off the pain I watched Law & Order reruns.
The last episode that I watched was about a woman who fell sick quickly and within hours had disfiguring bumps all over her body which caused her death within a day.
It turned out to be the ex-girlfriend of her dentist husband who got the idea because the dentist had murdered her sister 10 years earlier in this way.
By morning I was pretty sure I had been poisoned.
Except no one has any motive to kill me.
Oh, and dioxin isn’t the easiest thing to get your hands on.
Oh, and I wasn’t coverd with dioxin hives.
Oh, and I actually woke up.
I had blog-Stedman take a look at my mouth and he Googled a few things and diagnosed me with gingivitis.
Calling my pain gingivitis doesn’t have the dramatic flair that dioxin poisoning carries.
And I brush regularly.
The pain increased and I called my dentist.
He saw me yesterday and put some fancy dentist stuff on my gums.
I have some gum inflammation which pretty much means I have gingivitis and the lamest Law & Order episode in the making…
