Now Act 1 scene 2 began with the waiting at the dentist's. All around me I had small kids accompanied with their mums who would occasionally smile looking at me sympathetically. The kids on the other hand I believed looked at me and probably wondering, "See Momma, even the grown ups don't know how to brush their teeth!"
After A long wait I literally got tired of explaining everyone that, "No no, I don't have cavities, Its the Wisdom tooth that's bothering." (Yes I lied to them, I DO have cavities!) Finally it was my number, and there the doctor was, in full mood to make me feel like a 2 year old! Asking me questions that made me blushed, "How many times do you brush in a day?", "How do you brush?", "What toothpaste do you use?", and so on. I wanted to punch him hard in the face and tell him to stop making me feel so small and for heaven's sake treat me like a mature, decent, young 22 years old lady, who very well knew HOW TO BRUSH HER TEETH! After making me feel terribly small and giving me literally a bag full of medicine the doctor told me that all the pain and the fever was due to the 'Wisdom Tooth' to which I gave him a complete Blank look. He smiled and told me that Some (unlucky people I guess?!) people in their 20s get one or two extra tooth which is called the Wisdom Tooth, to which I couldn't control myself and asked him, "Why?", He looked at me with his dont-be-so-stupid-look! But my question was actually Why will I need one or two extra tooth in my mid twenty's when I managed for so long!! I mean why the sudden need of a pair of extra teeth, what special or extra will I start eating all of a sudden that I will need these teeth!! In the meanwhile I guess the doctor somehow learnt what's going in my mind and said, Oh you see this is just like how early men had Tails, it started to grow smaller and smaller and finally vanished and so are these Wisdom Teeth, Early men started eating all rough and raw food when they attained their mid twenties so this is the reason for this Wisdom tooth. I so much wanted to ask him as to why tail disappeared earlier and not this stupid tooth but I stayed mum realizing doctor's growing impatience.
With a bag full of medicines and a mind full of questions I rode back home, wondering if our great great great grand kids would finally get freedom from these Painful Wisdom teeth.
