    Actually, having no dental insurance and having to pull your own tooth is worse. But only for a short time

    I could name quite a few things, but toothaches are awful too! Now I know the difference between Senryu and Haiku...Thanks to Marie Shine. (Report) Reply

    I need to change the titles on some of my Haiku/Senryu. Having been burned in an explosion, I can affirm that burns are the worst pain I have experienced, but at the time of writing, I had a toothache.: -)

    It can be an allergic cold
    I just went through one of them
    Yet I enjoyed your haiku
    Toothaches are a terrible pain
