I actually wrote a sonnet about tooth pain once. In high school. The assignment was to expand on a line from Shakespeare, and I chose the line “If it were done when ’tis done…” from Macbeth, and turned it into:
If it were done when ’tis done, I could leave
This office with the happiest of faces,
As waking from a dream; yet I believe
I’ll ne’er escape the agony of these braces.
The orthodontist’s visit’s at an end;
the metal on my teeth glints in the sun,
but those with tightened braces comprehend
That it is never done when it is done.
For one whole month no dentist’s rubber hands
Shall squeak against my teeth, not scrape my gum,
And yet their ghosts, these newly tightened bands
Shall wrench my mouth with pain for weeks to come.
…and I can’t remember the ending couplet. Rats.
Hey Colin, the Pope called… he was wondering if you would accept to re-paint the Cistin Chapel’s ceilling with a masterpiece about your sensitive teeth.
Leonard Bernstein has already released the sheet music to: “Colin’s Flippin’ Teeth”
it is highly popular amongst High School choral groups.
I drew a picture dedicated to my teeth pain. And Pauline is a bitch.
great. now Colin not only has dental pain, but he has a huge pain in the ass too
Wow Pauline is such a bitch. I wanna punch her in the face hahaha
You’re really making me hate Pauline.
I don’t think Colin knows he deserves better.
PAULINE IS A BETCH.
I absolutely LOVE the third panel! The pose and expression Pauline has is priceless!
I absolutely agree.
Are you sure Pauline’s kidding? I mean, Colin does star in a webcomic. Maybe Pauline just won’t hand over the phone.
2nd panel is the best. I am going to try to work it into a conversation
Ooh Pauline is one cold lady today.
Maybe she’s got some problems of her own.
Maybe, Pauline should kiss Colin…
she should get cut. lol, literally
I think Colin’s expression in the last panel is one of my favourite so far.
Perhaps it’s Pauline’s time of the month….
lol yes indeed!
Why is Pauline always such a bitch to Colin…
I bet it’s because she’s secretly in love with him, and only knows how to express her feelings like a 7 year old boy.
why is paulines face like that??? it’s like this! —-> <——- PAULINE…
Now THAT’S sarcasm.
P.S. I think Pauline is great.
