Woulda named it George
I had this thing in my gum that was poking me and being generally painful and annoying. Went to the oral surgeon today to look at it (follow-up appointment #4).
He pulled a 5mm shard of bone out of my gum.

He wouldn't let me keep it.

that sounds extremely painful. my first thoughts: HOLY SHIT!

Not especially bad. Having to leave work for yet more doctor visits is equally painful. I'd like to stop seeing this person.

I've seen more doctors in the last month than I have in the last 5 years.

dude. i woulda been "that there that you are holding is a part of *MY* body and i demand it's return" cause.. duuuuddde, that woulda made a sweet party story. :P

glad you got it fixified, tho.

I'm glad too. Maybe my mouth will heal enough that I could, I dunno... open it all the way.

Maybe he should bring a lawyer with him to subsequent "there's something odd in my mouth that wasn't here before" visits to the dentist. Nothing like having an attorney threatening a lawsuit to make sure you get your parts back.

Doctors are such killjoys on that count. When I had a cyst taken out of the back of me knee, the doctor wouldn't let me keep that either.

Geez. You coulda even seen yours across the room in a jar. Mine was pretty small for anything fun.

I could have kept it on my desk at work!

I bet the nerdy girls woulda loved that.

It probably would have gone over better at the drug company, than the large financial services firm I'm working at now. Very different flavors of nerd, let me tell you.

Yes, but would you have loved it and hugged it as well?

This is something you should remember should you ever go to jail. You now know where to stow a makeshift shiv part.

In the other guy's mouth?

I had a few of those babies crop up after I had my wisdom teeth out. Shrapnel of me!

I hope so but I was especially good this year so Santa may have given me a belated Xmess gift.

Did he say why you couldn't have your own parts?

I'm curious.

Man, if anybody wanted to make one fucking WICKED voodoo doll... tooth shards are seriously the way to do it...

Blood, bone, breath, spit... You don't get much more "exposed" than tooth shards. Wow.

I'd go back and get it just on principle.
