A Waste of Time and Sleep
Saturday, July 18, 2015
I got up at 7:15 (way before I was ready) to go to the dentist to have a root canal. I walked to the mall. I got there by 8:30, my appointment time. I had my root canal. I had my face frozen for two hours, during which I walked home and did housework. I walked back to the mall and got my eyebrows done (and expense I don't usually indulge in but my eyebrows just looked so manish and I don't have the eyesight to do them myself) I am wearing contacts and I can't look over my contacts to see better up close the way I look over my glasses to see small print and when I have my glasses off I practically have to press my face against the mirror to see my eyebrows. I can't make them match. I can't do them by myself. anyway, I'm off topic. I got my eyebrows done and on the way home, I got some ribs from Ribfest in Celebration Square. I brought it home in my backpack instead of eating there because it was raining and I wanted to have a bath to warm up and put on fresh dry clothes. After my bath, I started to chow down on my ribs. I bit into the tender meat and felt something hard. I knew I hadn't bitten into the bone so I pulled out the offender. It was my root canaled tooth. It had broken off near my gum level. Great. Now I have to go back to the dentist tomorrow to have it pulled out. They are in the process of making partial dentures for my bottom jaw, so they are going to have to change that and add another tooth. So now I have this useless little tooth sitting on the table in front of me. It looks like marble. I guess it's kinda creepy. I should throw it out but I am still pissed off. Very pissed off. Now I only have two teeth to chew with and one of them hurts. And it will be at least a week before I get my partial denture. Grrrrrrrr very pissed off.
