one of the many admonishments on the very detailed instruction sheet for post-op tooth care  said “You should not eat very hard foods, such as rock candy, for about eight weeks.”

ROCK CANDY??  is that the first thing somebody is going to think about after their surgery?  can you even buy rock candy anywhere anymore, besides at the Cracker Barrel?

do any adults ever eat rock candy?

at least they told me, so i won’t be crunching on the rock candy as i drive around town in my tank.
