Cracked my jaw on the edge of my countertop this morning. Dropped my favorite tea pot, tried to hop out of the way (barefoot) to avoid stepping on the pieces, and slipped in the tea and smacked the side of my jaw on the edge of the countertop before I managed to grab the counter with my hand (the hand that wasn't holding a handful of breakfast silverware)... then sort of sat there, and evaluated, and there was a sharp pain in my left ear... and then i realized I couldnt close my mouth all the way without intense pressure./pain and a loud horrible noise... so I waited around, hoping it'd get better, then, when it didn't, dragged the kids to the ER, and apparently I chipped and cracked the top edge of the lower jaw, right next to my ear, and then it bled inside, and caused a muscle spasm, which threw my jaw out of alignment, and HURTS!! Anyway, you don't need to feel sorry for me... I'm feeling pretty sorry for myself... had a horrible time eating SOUP tonight.... mostly had to eat like a chicken, get the food in, then throw your head back and wiggle it around until the food falls down your throat... totally undignified!!!
