Writing from impulse

Teeth are complex growths.
There are a lot of things that can go wrong with your teeth. You know that from experience, and when I woke up this morning I was aching. Top right, about half way along the row.

It was five o’clock, and dark. It’s a good long time since I woke that early and struggled unsuccessfully to go back to sleep. Imagine the rest…

Chances are you’ve been there. The human condition…

It’s the same with dogs,
Louis’s vet told me on Tuesday. “I wish every dog-owner would brush their dog’s teeth” were her words. I bought a toothbush and asked for instruction. The advice came free. Louis may have a troublesome back tooth.

Teeth are complex,
and mine have been fill with all sorts of things ever since my first dentist insisted every crevice should be drilled.

I’m impelled to touch on my teeth because the impulse to write on this topic came while I was saying to myself “I must embed this new habit. If I write here every day. for 1,000 days, I’ll do for the rest of my life. Probably.”

Start with what you know.
Was it Hemingway or Aristotle who first said that? I know what it’s been like to experience the pain fading away. It’s midday, it’s gone.

Should I rush to the dentist? Take my time? Place it in the box marked “Bad Dream”?

One thought on “Writing from impulse”

  1. I have just been operated… We have had dental pains at the same time, does it mean there is a mysterious astral connection berween us. Certainly just as you have written: human condition. Or living condition, to include Louis!…
