That was my mantra for several days after a fairly major oral surgery procedure earlier this month. Swelling, bruising, and significant numbness along the left side of my face created lots of questions – some spoken, but most unspoken. My standard response became, “You should see the other guy.”

After a week or more of doggedly insisting that no one, under any circumstances, should point a camera my way, I was shocked when my neighbor sent me a link to this photo.

Governor Mike Beebe was in Fort Smith to dedicate the new Sebastian County Courts facility. Thankfully, the photographer shot from my right side. You can sorta see the left side of my smile is sorta stuck. Ohhhhh, well.
