I found out a little to late in life that you aren’t supposed to block punches with your face.
When I was youth, I played a game called rope a dope when other kids picked fights with me.
I would stand there and get hit until the other guy lost his wind. I remember counting down from 20. Most of them got tired ….
Then it was my turn. I would wrestle them to the ground and they gave up quick.
That worked well for a long time until a boxer hit me and I was out cold on the floor.
My jaw still pops when I chew food from that one.
I have come to regret that style of communication as a youth, especially today.
I was in the dentist chair for around four hours today getting this fixed. Things are starting to catch up with me.
Dental work is not cheap. This one will cost a months’ wage. Fortunately, I have some dental coverage.
While I wait for a crown, I will be on a mechanical soft diet. Do your self a favor and learn from me. When they say “use your head”, dont do it like I did when I was younger.
