Lions & Tigers & Dentists -- OH MY!

Damn, damn, damn. I broke a filling out of a tooth today. So I am off to see the dentist. I'd rather get a haircut or a body part removed. And this appointment may get in the way of attending an auction this afternoon.

It is a wisdom tooth that broke. I guess that I will 25% less wise after this appointment. Damn, damn, damn.

Mr. Flannery

UPDATE - I survived the dental appointment, but just barely. He had to pull the remainder of the decrepit tooth. There was a "minor pinch and pressure" that the dentist described when he started, but the searing pain to the top of my head where the 5 inch roots attached and putting his feet on my shoulders because he needed leverage were a bit much. I checked with my stupid little brother about the loss of wisdom. He stated that because I swallowed a portion of the tooth, while I may lose a small amount of head wisdom, as the tooth settles through my system the increase in my "wise ass quotient" will more than make up for it.

Oh...that totally stinks!!! But I have to confess... I have never had any wisdom teeth, so does that mean I've NEVER been wise? damn.

Good luck today!!! I fill your pain...

Honey if you get any more "wise ass" it will start leaking out your ears!! Will we see you at Gypsy's tomorrow? got 2 more mantles in there and we are working on a 3rd - they are yummy!

OOPS - meant mantel - not mantle (no coleman lanterns). You would think I would have learned how to spell that word by now considering how many mantel's we have made!!

I am laughing so hard...

but I am mighty grateful that your "wise assedness" will indeed remain in tact (if not increased).

Ouch ouch ouch I feel for ya.

Hey don't worry about the wisdom loss too much, it's cunning and experience that really get us by.

It is NOT APPROPRIATE for an esteemed law office associate to be laughing out LOUD, rolling on the floor, howling, with tears running down my face!!!
You are TOOOO funny!
Hope the tooth isn't bothering you any more....
