I had a tooth extracted today. That’s probably of little interest to anyone but me, except for the potential humor value of the song that was playing on the radio at the time.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts. You are not alone

Yes, really – “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. Cute, huh? The dentist (oral surgeon, whatever) was humming along too. He even commented at one point on this being the ideal song for a tooth extraction. If I hadn’t been in a situation where laughing might be extremely dangerous, I might have allowed a chuckle or two.
