my hole

I'm still not used to having only 31 teeth. While I generally forget about my mouth-dolmens when eating a meal, today's session with Xylitol brand chewing gum brought home the fact that the left side of my face no longer chews normally. The gum wad kept slipping into the void where the beleaguered Upper Left Wisdom Tooth once stood. Felt strange.

"Getting used to" the absence of the tooth won't mean forgetting its absence; it'll mean becoming accustomed to a new set of sensations.

I have no clue why this post is so fucking serious in tone.

I kept loose change in mine until the hole disappeared.
