dusty wagon.

Ha ha the mind boggles! Mine were also impacted and removed in hospital. I resembled a hamster storing food supplies for days afterwards. Not much fun as I was a secondary school teacher at the time and stoically went straight back to work.

Alsatian (and I still call them that).

Q231. What is the common name given to the 3rd molar teeth?
Wisdom (many people do not get them until their 20s, but I had mine through -

to take – in particular, Tetracycline, which also discolours them – grrrr).

Q232. Which is the smallest British bird?
Goldcrest (for years I thought it was the wren, but as the question commonly
crops up in quizzes, I now know better).
