This happened about five years ago, but reading the incessant requests to “SMILE” on this blog, I was reminded and had to share.
I had just gotten out of the oral surgeon, two wisdom teeth lighter, and wads of cotton shoved into the bleeding holes, but I was still swallowing a bit of blood. But I was still a little stoned from the nitrous and kept thinking I shouldn’t swallow blood, so I was sort of letting it pool a little.
I lived in Takoma Park at the time and had two cabs just refuse to take my poor swollen-up face home, when all of a sudden (or it seemed that way, again, still coming off nitrous) there is this DUDE all up in my mug with a “SMILE, BAYBEE!”
I kinda grimaced like a monkey and let some of that pooled blood run out of my mouth and down my chin a little. He staggered back several feet and then took off.
I wiped it off, had a good giggle, and caught the very next cab who was kind enough to play some Pink Floyd to match my state of mind, so it all came out okay.
