but not for the obvious reason. Not because it is rude. Not because it is a sign of laziness or tiredness or lack of sleep or boredom or... But because my jaw is sort of dislocated. or has a loose socket or something technical - I don't think I was paying too much attention when the doctors told me.
If I open my mouth really wide and then close it without paying too much attention, the jaw can come out of its socket and fall back in with a loud (to me anyway - could be the relatively short distance from the jaw join to the ear canal) cracking sound. It is painful. From moderately to very depending on the circumstances.
Why am I writing this now? I just yawned... but for the first time ever, my jaw locked. yep, you read that right. Not only could I not close my mouth, all I could say was "aaa. aaa." and not very loudly at that. (If had called for help, would anyone have figured otu why I was gripping my bottom teeth and saying "aaa."? )would be funny if it was not painful. Scratch that - thinking back, it was funny. Laughing at the sound right now.
Lasted maybe a minute or so with me physically pulling at my mouth. eventually with a little cajoling, it cracked (painfully) into place. The jaw muscles had a moderate amount of cramp. Let's just say I have a very painful jaw right now.
Having a blog is awesome. Where else would I write about things like this?
