For the past two weeks, I’ve been battling tooth pain. It all began when I had to get a crown to replace an old one. After they put the temporary on, my tooth got infected... which led to a root canal yesterday.
The pain has been excruciating. In fact, I could even say it’s been phantasmagoric… and that, my friends, is our word for the day.
