Another tour, another trauma

Yes, here I am in Bath. What could possibly happen? I hear you ask.
Well, it wasn't travel arrangements or weather this time.

Arrived in lovely Bath, parked up and headed downtown for some food.
Had just settled in the Cornish Pastie Co for a wee bite, and had
literally taken a wee bite when...

Me: is there something stuck in my tooth?

Dolly: screams

Turns out a good quarter of my front tooth was stuck in something, and
it wasn't my gum!

And so began the frantic phonecalls to hospitals, dentists and
emergency helplines until I eventually secured a dental appointment
with a dentist, in Bristol.

Two and a half hours and a mighty dose of anaesthetic later, I no
longer whistled my speech or looked like an extra for a hobo movie.
But I am on a strict diet of liquids only until tomorrow morning. By
which time I'm hoping my still-now-four-and-a-half-hours-later frozen
mouth will have defrosted.

And so there was a certain amount if déjà vu with all todays yo-yoing
backwards and forwards between Bristol and Bath.

If I ever suggest you join me on a rugby tour........
