Read This, Then Go Brush & Floss

The Swami had a tooth extracted today. Wow, I'm sure you're thrilled to be able to read about Swami's dental work. This will undoubtedly be the highlight of your day. [editorial note: If this is the highlight of your day, Swami suggests you seek professional help immediately].

While this was not a real treat, I must say dentistry has improved a bit since Swami was very young. Some of you may remember when you could see the little cables that ran from the motor to the drill bit when the dentist had to drill out a cavity. The young Swami's dentist had a new-fangled power drill where you could not only see the cables that turned the drill bit, but also the cables that went out the window to where a pair of oxen turned a large wheel to provide the power.

Yes, yaks would have been Swami's preference.

I am glad that I got a second opinion before having this tooth pulled. The initial opinion, from the shaman who also treats our yaks, was that my teeth were fine but the gums would have to come out. Fortunately our primary veterinarian/dentist only pulled one tooth. Swami was in luck tonight. I could not eat anything solid (this ruled out yak jerky) but there was some of Swamette's delicious chili that I was able to slowly eat. Swamette is such a good cook that only his genes prevent The Swami from weighing in at 675 lbs.

Look on the bright side, Swami. With that new gap in your teeth, you will find it easier to whistle for the yaks to come in for dinner.

For a moment, I thought this would be a yak-free post. NOT!
