April 8th……..“WHEN LIFE HAS HANDED YOU LEMONS, WERE YOU ABLE TO MAKE A FUN LEMONADE”?
The answer to that question is a smiling, Yes! 😉 To my embarrassment, I have not been a very disciplined person in regards to my dental health over the years. There came a time when my good friend and dentist, back in Battle Ground, Washington, said that I had to have an upper tooth pulled. He wisely cautioned me that, sometimes, depending on the depth of the tooth’s root, there may result in an actual hole up into my sinus cavity called a “fistula”. And, whaddaya know……..that’s exactly what happened! So, rather than cry about my air hole into the head, I decided to have some fun and created a song about it. Using a fun, opera-sounding tune called, “Funiculi, Funicula”, I created some fun. I hope you get a giggle from singing along to my own lyrics to the song I call……..
SONG – “My Flappy Fistula” lyrics by N. Elliott Noorlun
VERSE: I went to see my dentist on a Monday, To clean my tooth, To clean my tooth.
He said, that due to rotting, yuk and decay, It was uncouth, It was uncouth.
His plan, was fix it up upon a Wednesday, It had gone bad, He told this lad.
“But now, we’d better yank it”!, I heard him say, I said, “O.K.”!, He yanked away.
CHORUS: Heave and ho!!! The long tooth popped right out, Now there’s a hole, Clear up into my snout.
He said, “It’s called a Fistula”, The size of a fist, The Fistulaaaaaaaah!!
Now the air blows through my smile, All the way up my Fistula!
VERSE: Before, I had this porcelain pull procedure, My speech was fine, Like flowing wine.
But now, my “P’s” and “F’s” inflate my tooth hole, So now I whine, Just like a swine!
I used to spit and make all kinds of mouth sounds, My friends would snort, From my retort.
But now, just trying to speak sounds like a Bloodhound, Blubbering drool, Just like a fool!!
REPEAT CHORUS AND END WITH A FLUORIDE FLOURISH !!! 😉
