Down to the Roots

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I had a massive toothache on Monday, then it subsided yesterday, and I went to the dentist this morning. The worst kind of surprise awaited me: a root canal!

Several hundred dollars later, with a numb face and sad spirit (I do have to return to have the endodontist finish the procedure), I was walking a few blocks up to work, taking some comfort in that it's a particularly beautiful spring-like day in NYC.

Also, another silver lining for this morning was that, before the dentist, I was still able to squeeze in a run after being out of commission the past couple o' days.

I guess dental care easily falls into the category of "Really Good Reason to Take Care of Myself." I just wish this reminder wasn't so expensive, and wasn't such a drag!

With a case of the blah's,
Phil G.
