    Teabagged?


    2012 - 06.07

    This was one of those hazing rituals that I never went through myself, until now.  I don’t really see what the deal is.  If I understand it correctly, most people don’t even get teeth removed before hand.  Sure a teabag in your mouth isn’t perhaps the best flavour, but there are worse options.

    I think I’ve now gone through 8 tea bags after the wisdom tooth extraction, which they recommend you use instead of gauze to aid in the formation of blood clots and healing in general.  At except for the one that I apparently chewed on too much, or was otherwise defective it went well.  Unfortunately that one kind of exploded in my mouth, very unpleasant, much spitting ensued.  Unfortunately it happened while I was still forbidden from actually rinsing my mouth out.

    I suppose your milage may vary, but really I don’t see what the big deal is.

    Wisdom Teeth: Food Suggestions?
