But I've done a lot of it. I've been in over 230 productions . . . 43 of which have been Shakespearean productions. One of his plays "Much Ado About Nothing" has a line in it that refers to my current situation. Here it is (from memory so it might be a slight misquote):
"There was never yet philosopher that could endure the toothache patiently."
So here it is almost 7:00 in the morning and I've not had a jot of sleep thanks to a very nasty toothache.
. . . And I am not enduring it patiently . . . particularly since it is a weekend and I won't be able to see a dentist until next week.
So what am I doing for it? Besides some (not particularly effective) pain-killers, I am rinsing with hot salt water, rinsing with hydrogen peroxide (followed by several water rinses once the foaming has stopped) and using a spray local anesthetic.
They all help; but the pain is still there . . . and I'm not even a philosopher.
