What's fun about surgery

Clearly, the pain meds and the nitrous oxide they use to put you under is fun. I went to sleep listening to my surgeon and the nurses singing along to the radio, and I woke up to being told how great I was. The car ride home was way fun as well. I don't remember ever being so amused at the streets of Richmond. I doubt my driver had as much fun as I did, but hey; it's all about me today.

Since I have been home, the loopiness has worn off and the pain is starting up again. So I just took my first pain pill, and I cannot wait to experience what Rush Limbaugh does on a daily basis. Oh wait, he's "recovered". Riiiiiiiiiiight...

I would also like to point out that the following soft foods are awesome (in small amounts, of course), and I highly suggest them to all, post surgery or not:
Haagen-Dazs Mango Sorbet (fat-free)
Haagen-Dazs Raspberry Sorbet (fat-free)
Haagen-Dazs Coffee Ice Cream
Jello Mint Chocolate Fudge Pudding (sugar-free)
Amy's Low Fat Organic Cream of Tomato Soup
Thadd was an awesome guy and took before and after pictures of me today. I'll post them later so you have something to laugh at hysterically. Let's just say that I am not at my best right now...

It's not fake boobs, you two. ;) The recovery period for that is a lot longer than this run of the mill operation I had. Any guesses?

And yeah, the photos are way different. I look pretty bad right now...

I'm having surgery in two weeks. Guarantee you I'm not going to look good after that. Bet my post-op photos will be funnier-looking than yours.

It sounds to me like you had your wisdom teeth removed. That would account for the funny looking face. Nitrous oxide is usually a tipoff.
