We got a bit of snow yesterday.
I took pictures as I was on my way to the endodontist.
As you can see, this was the perfect kind of snow. Pretty, etching the trees, and most importantly -
NOT on the roads! This disappointed Moe a great deal. Schools were in session as usual.
The snow was gone by 2 pm. It was pretty while it lasted....
Two pm was about the time I was in full misery after seeing the endodontist. I have The Worst Teeth in the World. Ok, not just me - my brother shares that distinction too. We take care of our teeth, brushing, flossing, seeing the dentist regularly, but we still have a zillion crowns and are now losing teeth. Dr Endodotist started drilling away on me (root canal), straight through a crown (an interesting experience on its own), and then he started rooting around in my tooth. It was then that he said "Uh-oh" in an ominous way, and stopped digging. Because he found what the crown had hidden from the x-ray - that the tooth wasn't salvageable due to decay into the fork of the root. He offered to pull it, but I'm going to an oral surgeon next week to get that done.
The worst part of this is I am now being forced to get a dental implant so that I can chew on that side of my mouth. Dental implants are not covered by my insurance, and they're not cheap. As in there goes any vacation for the next couple of years not cheap.
Anyhow, the drilling and the shooting of needles into my mouth, combined with the discomfort from the dental infection melded into some whopper pain. It's well known that I have an extremely high pain tolerance, but by early afternoon I was about to bang my head on my desk to distract myself from my dental affliction. It's better now, but the pain will soon move to my pocketbook.
Speaking of pain, I drove in to work today in olfactory pain. Curly had borrowed my little car briefly last night to apply for a job. This morning, I opened the door of the car and a huge wave of Axe cologne hit me. He must have put that nasty cologne on in the car and saturated himself. What is it with boys and their stink? I drove in choking and gagging from the smell - it gave me a headache and made my eyes water.
So what's giving you pain these days?
