Nouns, Schmouns...  
HalfshellHusband tried to convince me last night that the orthodontist wanted to pull out some of our son's molars. That made no sense—they'd been part of the orthodontia, and you don't randomly remove molars. Plus, they were done coming in. Wisdom teeth are a different story. People remove those all the—

HalfshellHusband: "Wisdom teeth, yes. Wait, what did I say before?"

I can't remember if our daughter is supposed to get all of hers out too (and we're just waiting for them to get closer to the surface), or whether only some are coming out. She had two teeth pulled for braces, which still kind of puzzles me. I had four bicuspids removed when I was a kid, because in those days, all the teeth that "lined up" in the bite went if there wasn't enough room. I don't see how having more on the top or bottom could be good, but that's what she wound up with. Possibly, two wisdom teeth will be added as well.

We might get some rain tomorrow, which would be welcome despite leading to garage-biking for me. It would have been a wonderful weather for a ride today, but my boss has scheduled his weekly meeting right in my early-afternoon bicycling window. I regret it every Wednesday. :(

Friday, though... that has outdoor possibilities. *fingers crossed*

Questions I want answered without endless dinking around on Google: who wrote the theme song to XYZ (eg., "Battle Creek" and "Backstrom" at the moment), and are those real songs I can buy somewhere? If not, WHY not? The answer to the first is Brandan Calhoon and apparently "No." The second? Still looking. :(

I had 8 teeth pulled for my braces when I was 12. Four impacted wisdom teeth, for double fun. It was great.

You had impacted wisdom teeth at age 12? Wow.

I had the four pulled when I was about 12, and then the wisdom teeth all came out later. Very small jaw.

By contrast, I work with a guy of Persian heritage, and I could swear he has all of his teeth-- he has a big, wide, white smile, and I can't imagine his wisdom teeth didn't fit right in there too. :O
