I honestly had other plans for my post today. However, I have an abscessed tooth that is killing me. I called the dentist on Friday and he sent me antibiotics (which I've taken religiously all weekend) and I go in tomorrow morning at 8:00 AM. I cannot begin to tell you how I am so not looking forward to it. But, my tooth is far too painful this time to try and get out of this visit.
Well, I started feeling better a few hours ago which means the medication must be working. Normally, this is the point when I would try to weasel out of the appointment in the morning, but I'm experienced enough to know better than to try this time.
The fact is, my teeth and I are dangerously close to parting ways. You see, I'm a a teeth gnasher. A grinder. I suffer from severe sleep bruxism, which means I don't grind during my waking hours... only in my sleep. Very much the same as Mr. Snoots being a Midnight Rambler. Neither of us knows that we're doing what we do because we are, well... asleep!
Stay tuned to see if I get to have another thrilling root canal or if they just yank all those suckers out and slap some choppers between my lips. I might die if that happens...
