Whoa, where does the time go? Turns out I didn’t get my tooth pulled today, but my excuse for not posting yesterday is still legit, I was indeed filming a few television segments! More on that later, but in the meantime, enjoy these videos, where the last one includes my kid hacking in the background…
Also, I recorded another radio segment yesterday, link is here if you care to listen to me count down the top 5 book recommendations for Christmas gifts!
What a sad little cough! I hope your daughter feels better soon. Nick and I are listening to this in bed, and he didn’t read the blog post, so he was all concerned that your tooth got pulled. He said one time he went in to do a root canal, but it turns out he had a really big cavity that the could fix. As long as the base of the tooth is good, they can build a crown on it–is that what happened with you?
Oh lord it’s a long story. Basically I’ve had a crown on this tooth for a few years but it’s not sitting properly on the tooth because I have a tiny mouth and it’s pushing up against the gum, so the crown will never sit properly unless I get my gums cut down. And, since they’ve been trying to replace the crown, the nerve has flared up again, so instead of them doing a root canal I’m just getting them to pull it. And potentially get an implant in? Not sure, but I’ll keep you guys updated over the next few weeks so you can follow along haha
Implants are tough because they drill into your jaw bone, but if the crown isn’t working that may be the next step. Some people just put in a spacer if the tooth is way in the back and you can’t really see it. That’s an easier fix.
I’m thinking I may not even need a implant, one dentist said I may not even miss it, and it’s my very back molar so you can’t see it anyway 🙂
There you go!
December 4: That was quite the opening line! I liked the story, but I tend to get frustrated by addicted characters. It was telling, though, that I turned the last page expecting more.
Yes, me too! I had that exact same reaction at the end…
December 5: This one lost me a bit. Perhaps I got caught up in the boredom and futility. The language didn’t seem natural to me; there were 2 uses of “thereof” and 1 of “apropos” that just didn’t seem to fit the character, particularly when he used the phrase “It creep into my toes.” on the last page. I also could have used a terp for all of the military acronyms.
Yes, you’re so right. When the character feels bored, it’s hard not to bore us readers too!
Ooh, I want to know more about you becoming a TV star!! I’m a bit disappointed that you’ve had two choc squares in a row – time for a chocolate reindeer tomorrow, I think…
I got one today-a snowman! Yay! And ‘tv star’ may be a bit of a stretch LOL
Addicted to therapy… that’s interesting!
