What benefits could be derived from an aggressive, partially unsuccessful, tooth extraction, you may ask.
Well, I’m now wearing a pair of jeans I’ve not been able to fasten for a very long time.
So flares* might not exactly be fashionable right now, but the important thing is that the jeans fit once more.
There’s another benefit too. Yes, really. I’ve now scientifically proven that excessive beer consumption does not in fact result in a proportionate increase in the size of a man’s midriff. The reduction in my own middle area appears solely to be the result of my two week diet of soup.
While I recognise that a continued soup diet would enable me to maintain my new physique, I fear that this pair of jeans will soon return to the wardrobe.
