If your wife, who is recovering from traumatic oral surgery, asks if she has bad breath, it is not a trick question. It does not fall into the “Does my ass look big in this?” category.
Bad breath, you see, is a sign she may have an infection. You may save her from swelling, terrible tastes in her mouth, high-powered antibiotics and weird mouthwash that has a potential side effect of dying her teeth blue. Awesome!
Just tell her about her terrible, foul, rotten mouth-stench. OK?
