"Faced with the choice of enduring a bad toothache or going to the dentist, we generally tried to ride out the bad tooth. " -- Joseph Barbera
Remember that list I made last week? Of the things that were indicating how effing old I am? Well, add this one:
4. Today, part of my tooth fell out.
Okay, maybe it was an old filling (which isn't a bad thing, since the Lyme-Nuts are telling me I need to take out all amalgam fillings). Or maybe it was part filling, part tooth. Or maybe I'm turning into a toothless crone before your very eyes. No matter how you look at it, it sucks.
However, at least I am reasonably sure it won't get infected. (A little I've-been-on-antibiotics-for-months humor, there.)
