Stitch, in your earlier post you mentioned the freezing weather. How do you keep warm with paper walls? Over here a bird or possum world end up going through it.
Back in the old days, that was a problem. These days, for doors leading to the outside veranda or gardens, we have sliding glass doors on the outside, and shoji on the inside, instead of curtains. (The front door is a solid steel door with two locks and an alarm.)

Between the bedroom and the living room, the shoji are solid rather than paper, for more privacy, as is the door from the bedroom to the hallway. The shoji between the dinning room and the living room is paper, just like the ones leading out to the veranda. In fancy restaurants, the walls to each private dinning space are shoji, but with plastic instead of paper to keep drunk customers from poking through.

I'M MAD AS HELL AND .... AND ... AND AS SOON AS I GET SOME FEELING BACK INTO MY LIPS, I'M GOING TO YELL ABOUT IT!

So .... I went to get a root canal today ... after eating through straws for 3 days. And munching Vicodin like M&M's.
And ... I endure the repeated X-Rays, the testing with hot & cold that makes you cry like a baby, and the "hundreds" of needle sticks that finally numbs the entire right side of my head ... and the dental dam that suffocates you because the Novocaine has collapsed your nostril!
And ... the drilling begins ... I settle back for 2 hours of fun ... and suddenly the drilling stops ... and I hear the dentist say "Oh dear - I'm not going to be able to save this one."

It seems there was a fracture in one of the largest roots hidden by the old amalgam filling - that couldn't be sealed - literally splitting the tooth in half - no wonder I've been in excruciating pain!

So ... I'm sent home with half my face feeling the size of a basketball, a temporary filling, prescriptions for more Vicodin and antibiotics, and an appointment tomorrow with an oral surgeon to plan the removal of the molar! With instructions "Not to chew" until the tooth is out.

The nurse whispers "Better get some ibuprofen into you as soon as possible" as I leave. Have you ever tried to swallow 4 pills with water when there is absolutely no feeling in your tongue or in over 3/4 of your mouth? Or tell the pharmacist your date of birth without drooling on the counter?

*snivel*

I have consumed another cup of soup, 4 more ibuprofen, 2 amoxicillin capsules - and a Guinness!

I HATE TEETH!

Sometimes I think the best thing about teeth is after they are removed. Take lots of pain killers, Pooh, and plenty of Scotch. No one says you have to be sober for getting teeth out except the dentist. They used to use rum before cutting off a leg. That has to account for something! Hope all goes smoothly.

Oh, I'm sorry Pooh, I hope once it's out the pain will go away quickly!

My mother always "prescribes" Baileys when having a toothache.

pooh, I feel your pain. But the bright side is that the oral surgeon will probably knock you out to remove that troublemaking tooth.

I hate needles in my mouth.

Feel better. Hopefully they are able to get the molar out soon.

Please take care with antibiotics and alcohol....sometimes they don't mix well together.
Good luck on the teeth!

Unless I'm mistaken, the problem of mixing antibiotics and alcohol is that the alcohol reduces the efficacy of the drug rather than there being a physical danger because of the combination... but don't quote me on this. There IS a reason not to mix them.
