Argh! Ouch! $#%$&#$&*$!!!

Last Sunday, while eating an energy bar somewhere in the Upper East Side, I bit into the right side of my cheek and it hurt like hell! It was a pretty big gash too, and it took a while before I didn’t notice it anymore.

Just a few minutes ago, while chew some fresh, grape bubble gum in preparation for the softball game later this evening, I did it again. This time I think it was worse. My knees actually buckled.
