Extract –v. /ek-strakt, uhk-/ 1.remove or take out, esp. by effort or force (extract a tooth)
I bet you are wondering why I’ve got the definition of ‘extract’ on my blog yes? Hmm well I visited the x-ray people on Saturday, to have an x-ray of my teeth (I’ve got 4 wisdom teeth coming through). Anyway, I get a call today from my dentist, “Hi Alison” she says in a chirpy voice – I instantly know this is not going to be a chirpy conversation….
She goes on to tell me she’s referring me to an oral surgeon (how yuk does that profession sound), to get my bottom wisdom teeth pulled out, or for a better word, extracted!! I replied, “yay” in an extremely sarcastic voice…..
I knew it was coming, I was just hoping deep down it didn’t have to happen – but it does! Bummer hey? It won’t be for a little while, and look on the bright side – at least I’m covered by private health cover! *queasy smile*
