Friday the Thirteenth

Oh, lucky day....

This morning, while munching on what qualifies in this house as "breakfast," off popped the crown from my lower left molar.

Fortunately, I didn't swallow the darn thing. So I called my dentist for an appointment to get it cemented back in. An answering machine picked up the phone.

They're closed on Friday? Since when do dentists only work four days a week?

OK, OK, it's not exactly an emergency — I'm not in any pain whatsoever — but still... it's going to be a long weekend.

Maybe I need a new dentist.

Time to head to the drug store and get a package of that temporary crown glue stuff .

Actually, that's not a bad idea. I'd hate to get bits of food stuck in the crater over the weekend. (It's a big crown.)

I know how you feel. I got an eye tooth knocked out with a MILES laser on the barrel of my weapon in the Army, the Doc at the dental activity bonded it back in; years later, it breaks out while I am eating breakfast...damn apples!

Did anyone here see the History Channel show on the Battle of Marathon? There's a tooth tie-in.

Since the fees have gone up they can afford the four day week. I wrote our Senator John and asked him to resign so someone would represent his constituents. No response.
