Shogun, if you want to be the list-keeper, perhaps you should start a new thread, the official pu-erh box pass thread, and the first post will contain the list of people, the rules, the deadline, etc. Then you can just keep editing that first post. (Like Victoria did for oolong.)
Getting my wisdom teeth pulled was actually a good experience. They gave me laughing gas *and* opiates to put me under.... so needless to say I was in a pretty good mood when I woke up! Even afterward there was not much pain involved -- I wouldn't worry about it. Anyway good luck!
Oh, and drink lots of shu! Remember when hopGoblin had something up with his foot, shu kept the infections at bay.
Nonsense. It's just a day when you don't have to do anything you don't feel like doing. Hang out, snooze, read, TeaChat, cutout paper dolls, play with your toes, eat ice cream, make prank calls, practice your impersonations, catch up on your meditation skills, get someone to treat you like a baby ....shogun89 wrote: I am getting 4 wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow and simply put its going to be one hell of a day.

I remebered something about tea from when I had my wisdom teeth removed in the middle 17th century ...
A certain amount of bleeding is to be expected following surgery. Slight bleeding, oozing, or redness in the saliva is not uncommon and may persist for 24 hours. Excessive bleeding may be controlled by first rinsing or wiping any old clots from your mouth, then placing a gauze pad over the area and biting firmly for thirty minutes. Repeat if necessary. If bleeding continues, bite on a moistened tea bag for thirty minutes. The tannic acid in the tea bag helps to form a clot by contracting bleeding vessels. To minimize further bleeding, do not become excited, sit upright, and avoid exercise. If brisk bleeding does not subside, call for further instructions.
So , do not become excited (stop reading tea chat?)
and apply tea
