(untitled 350)

I found out on Friday that I need a root canal. The endodontist was booked until Wednesday, though, so I've been spending the last few days surviving on Vicodin and trying to find out which foods I can and can't eat on a rotten tooth.

So I'll just go ahead and share what I've found with you here.

Foods I have successfully eaten since Friday

  • Potato chips
  • French fries
  • One half of a chicken nugget
  • Italian bread
  • A banana (thinly sliced)
  • Soup (tomato, tomato bisque, chicken rice)
  • Ten oatmeal creme pies
  • A chocolate Frosty
Foods I have successfully eaten since Friday, but only just barely
  • Pizza (very, very slowly)
  • Toast
  • Chili cheese fries
  • Ritz crackers
Foods I have attempted to eat since Friday, but failed
  • Wheat Thins
  • A banana (unsliced)
  • Hashbrowns and onions
  • A grilled cheese sandwich
  • Soup (chicken noodle)
I'm looking forward to the root canal tomorrow so I can (hopefully!) get back to eating like a civilized person.

hope your root canal goes well! They are beastly but worth it.

The Lord knows that if you can't eat a grilled cheese sandwich or hashbrowns, the situation cannot stand. Godspeed to you and your tooth. And its roots. Poor you.
