There will be no Combat! blog today, because in approximately one hour I will undergo minor surgery wherein a very confident oral surgeon implants a titanium screw in my upper jaw, onto which my dentist will later screw a tooth. “Don’t screw a tooth!” I will say cheerfully to him. Anyway, it seems likely that the whole thing will give me a headache. It will be worth it to finally have my number-ten incisor, or at least a weird metal post sticking out of a mass of traumatized gum tissue and pulp. We’ll be back tomorrow, possibly complaining.
