Hello again iiwiiers
I got a tooth extracted today, which is great, no more pain for me! Well, you know what I mean. But even better than the painlessness is the leaflet I was given, "advice after extractions" from Admor. They cost over forty pence each to the NHS, even if you buy a thousand at once, but they're well worth it. The advice is just so good. Don't go thinking you know it all, because you don't. What, for instance would you say is the most important thing not to do after an extraction, the first thing you'd mention? Well you're wrong. The leaflet starts "1. Avoid cycling..." Yes, whatever you do after having a tooth out, if you do nothing else right don't cycle. For several hours. I think that's what it means. But why doesn't it say 'don't cycle'? 'Avoid'? That's pretty odd, as if you walk along minding your own business and if you don't stay alert a bike will climb under you and you'll find yourself cycling, cursing your inattentiveness. Perhaps it should say 'try to avoid cycling' or 'try not to cycle if you can possibly avoid it, but if you can't it doesn't matter.' Actually the word 'avoid' is emboldened, which suggests the word 'avoid' needed more emphasis then the words themselves could provide. Presumably when they tried the plain version the focus groups were like "eh? What's that? Embrace cycling, did you say?" to which they replied "no! Avoid cycling!"
I'll be busy tomorrow, not sure if you'll get anything, you'll get at least something Sunday if not tomorrow. In the meantime if you're bored you can go and look for depressing election results or something.
See you around
