He did such a good job removing my aching tooth, that within a couple of days I had forgotten it was ever there! Yes it did make me think a bit more about what I was eating.
So there I was, quietly fishing, later in the week. Just happened to stick a barbed baiting needle into my left index finger. I remember thinking, "oh s**t, that is gonna hurt in a few moments!"
Well it did, and I tried every which way to remove it, even tried pulling and teisting with a pair of pliers.
It would not budge, so I had to pack my gear up, load up the car, and drive 4 miles to the nearest hospital (manual gear change!!) for some assistance, all with the stupid bait needle hanging from my throbbing finger.
I almost managed not to comfort eat, but I did slip and eat about 8 squares of chocolate that evening!!
