That's what Susie's granddad said and he wasn't kidding.
So last night, just before leaving work for a nice relaxing 3-day weekend, I decided to break a tooth. Frantic phone call to my wonderful wonderful dentist whose house (and probably boat) I believe I have financed over the years. Still, I love her. So she saw me this a.m. at 9 (on a Saturday!) and said "you need a crown $$$$." I am a dental phobic as she well knows, but after ten years together she knows the drill (ha, i kill myself!) Give me enough gas and music in my ears and you can stick your whole arm down my throat and rip out my esophagus! These days, going to the dentist is like a little retreat!
So i have a temporary crown for three weeks. And while she was poking around she found out I have another tooth with an infected root. (This sounds like I have never seen a toothbrush before! I brush my teeth 20 times a day! I floss in the car! What the HELL!) So i have to go see a specialist who may have to "do an extraction." As in rip it out.
So between that and the pee doctor, I already have too many doctors visits scheduled. But no. I have to go see my eye doctor before 2/7 which is when my driver's license expires.
Not only is it hell getting old, it's time consuming!
There's more but I'm starting to bore myself.
Last night I made the mistake of reading through some of my archives. (Always a bad idea.) It seemed to me that it was just entirely possible that I spend a lot of time making fun of other people!!! So I have to stop doing that. I mean really. Is that all I have to write about? Is that the substance of my life here in the nation's capital? Why not write something uplifing now and then? C'mon!
So, that's one of my resolutions. I'm going to stop making fun of perky perkmonsters for the New Year. No, really. I swear.
I'm also inspired by Katy who has been facing down a fracture in her "femoral neck" like it was a hangnail. She is one hardcore dude who isn't crying about not being able to run but is busy making plans for what she's going to do when she can walk again. Take a lesson, Jeanne!
I'm determined to be like this guy (Robert Morse), seen here talking to himself in the mirror:
