Toothache hotel

I HAD BEEN meaning to record the sounds of hospital environments for a while, but somehow never got round to it. Now fate has intervened in the form of toothache, which has been slightly distracting. On the plus side, this ought to provide a good excuse to get mic’ed up and visit a dental hospital in the next day or so.

A previous trip some years ago found virtually all my fellow sufferers to be men, and some of them were trying and failing to suppress yelps of discomfort as they sat waiting their turn with the dentist.
