It Ain't so Wise

I had my wisdom teeth removed yesterday. In hindsight I should have asked the dentist to return them to me, given what the Tooth Fairy pays these days. Of course, then the IRS would be on me about unreported income...

They suggested I put a tea bag in my mouth to help the clotting process. Good idea, but I'm not sure what to do with that little string. It just dangles out of my mouth. It looks like I'm hiding a mouse.

Client 9

Here's my take on the Elliot Spitzer story: I don't get it.

I never understood the attraction to the whole prostitution thing. Heck, I feel emasculated for hiring a plumber to fix something I should know how to do.

Maybe Elliot should have been doing his activities at a Holiday Inn Express. At least then he could fool people into thinking he's a smart man. "I'm not actually an ethical governor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night."
