It Hurts So Bad

Picture having an open wound that's in constant contact with water, surrounded by sharp edges and endures massive pain 3 times a day. Several days ago, I bit my tongue and now it has developed into a full-blown swelling.

To make matters worse, I bit my inner lip while I was out having my lunch JUST NOW. I was trying to position the food in my mouth so as not to come in contact with the swollen area but things got complicated and I accidentally clamped my teeth down too early.

Now with all the accumulated oral damage, it feels like there's a riot going on inside my mouth:

(Inside Ben's mouth)
Tongue: NO MORE SPICY LISTERINE!
Lips: LIP BALMS ARE FOR SISSIES!
Teeth (Police): Hey you guys better cool it or we'll be forced to get physical.
Tongue: [Hands over a RM10 note]
Teeth: DOWN WITH DARLIE, WE WANT COLGATE!

Even my accessory organs are corrupt. Anyway, it hurts like hell everytime I try to talk so the gang resorted to communicating with me in yes or no questions. Unfortunately answering them only make me look retarded:

(At a hawker centre)
Kim: Do you need me to order for you?
Ben: [Nods, nods]
Kim: I'm having porridge, you want one too?
Ben: [Shrugs, nods]
Kim: Without vegetables, right?
Ben: [Nods, nods]
Kim: You want the bigger portion?
Ben: [Shrugs, nods]

(Next table staring)

Kim: He's my brother and it's been a difficult time for all of us. Could you spare us some change?
Ben: !!!

Right now, I am practically drinking my Bonjela cream.

Reminds me of the time back when I busted my lip on your forehead when we were playing basketball. That was a nasty-looking wound. Surprisingly, it didn't really cause me too much grief but it was hell on dry-lips and not exactly something for the ladies....

Benjamin

Yeah i remembered that. Sorry :D

I miss playing basketball. Kinda stopped when year 2 started, sigh.

Oh boy, that sounds gawdawful painful!

I can surely empathise with ya. I'm quite prone to biting my lip and tongue every time I hastily chomp and chew on my food...
