So I know I promised 21 days in a row. And well, that was probably 21 days ago. And well, I haven’t lived up to that. But! I am posting more, which is good, yes? And I’m feeling the need and desire to post more and share stories with y’all, and that was the whole point, so win?
In all honesty, I will be finished with Mad Men by this coming weekend, so I’m thinking I’ll have a lot more time to write, since there is nothing on TV.
Speaking of Mad Men, the Don Draper bot @ replied to me on Twitter and it still make me giddy. Don Draper replied to meeee! TO MEEEEEE! *swoon*
I actually had a whole post I was going to put here, talking about how tired I am because I was hanging with my niece this weekend, but then this afternoon, I decided to indulge in some Swedish Fish. I know I shouldn’t have, but I was craving some candy and I know that it’s not worth denying it. Unfortunately for me, I’ve been indulging all my cravings lately, which is why I have put back on some of the weight I lost.
Anyway, back to the Swedish Fish. Man, I love them. I love any chewy, fruity candy. In fact, since starting my new job, I may have become addicted to the Sunkist fruit snacks they carry at 7-11 downstairs. It’s too easy to indulge when I just have to take the elevator down to the lobby.
My love of chewy, fruity candy is nothing new. Starburst have been my favorite candy since forever. But I never thought this love affair would come back to bite me.
See, today, as I was eating an obscene amount of Swedish Fish, I felt my tooth, as I bit down. “Hmm,” I thought. “That’s odd.” Deciding to investigate further, I felt around in my mouth in case I had somehow chipped a tooth. “Nope, all teeth present and accounted for,” I lamented. And then I felt my tooth way in the back, the one with the crown on it. And it moved. The fucking porcelain tooth, that is CEMENTED ON, moved. Which means those fucking fish (and years of Starburst, Skittles and fruit snacks) popped my fucking crown loose!
Thankfully, this tooth was a root canal, so I am not in any pain. Not so thankfully is that this tooth had a root canal when I was like 12, and has had a crown on ever since. It has been replaced once. This is not good because there isn’t much of an actual tooth left. So I’m hoping that this doesn’t mean thousands of dollars of dental repairs.
The problem I’m having now, until I can get in to see the dentist tomorrow evening, is that I can’t stop fussing with it. I’ve already wiggled it completely loose and taken it out. And you know what? It reeks. I mean, it’s understandable as it has been in my mouth for like 10 years, but still. I’m not pleased with having dragon breath all day tomorrow until I get to the dentist. (Don’t worry, I stocked up on Altoids after work.)
But even worse than that is my fear that my dentist will tell me I can never have candy, especially Swedish Fish, again.
