Redistribute the wealth
Posted October 27, 2008on:
Went to the dentist this morning. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. Not that it was more fun than…well about anything. But it wasn’t as painful as some dental visits have been. I’m sporting three new fillings on the top and am scheduled to return in two weeks for a few more on the bottom. And I still won’t be done. Nope. I have a crown that fell off and the dentist is trying to determine what to do about that tooth. The hygienist wants me back in after all that’s over for a flouride treatment (hopefully it won’t be as disgusting as the ones we did in elementary school), and there are the wisdom teeth. DH is off today, so he tagged along. This guy is such a sport to go sit in the dentist office and read magazines while I endure whatever it is I’m enduring. I did end up getting wet, but it wasn’t drool. The assistant doused my neck with water when she was rinsing out my mouth. Fortunately I’m not Elphaba and I didn’t melt.
Numb lips are a good reason to eat soup. We stopped at the grocery store after I was done to pick up a can and some tapioca pudding. It made for a nice lunch. After lunch, we did some housecleaning which kept my mind off the fact that I felt like I had a lip the size of a hot-air balloon.
Tomorrow it’s back to work.
