This Bites

Sometimes, things go horribly wrong.

Take my eating a caramel. Normally, that would be a fun experience.

Unless the caramel pulls a crown lose.

And that's what happened to me.

Now, I've got to get me an appointment with a dentist and get this thing fixed. I'm not sure if I'm going to the dentist that put this thing in to start with, or if I'm going to go to a different one. I wasn't exactly all that thrilled with the last dentist, and that's part of why I'm overdue for a dental checkup.

But now, I've got a real good reason to go to the dentist. Or a real bad reason. But a reason, nonetheless.

The Wife will be happy that I'm going to the dentist. Trying to get me to go has been ... wait for it ... like pulling teeth.


  1. I know exactly what you are going through. Ah, the joy of dental work.

  2. I would recommend my dentists, Myers and Hamilton in Columbus off Bradley Park Drive.

  3. I have an appointment with them on Tuesday. Thanks.

  4. [...] off, as I did last week (and Basil keeps gettign sidelined by insults to his health, the latest, here), the political situation is now following, rather than leading military progress, but the real [...]

  5. Ugh. Dentist. Had to go last week myself, though fortunately and knock wood my crown (singular) happens to be in good shape for the moment, so it was only a filling. Still...I do like caramels. The agony of choosing between caramels and risk! OK, who am I kidding. Caramels win. Hope your visit is relatively painless.

    Hey Bro, Why don't you go to Wally World and get this temporary glue, I don't know the name of it. If I did, I would write it here :) Any way, that stuff works really well on loose crowns. It is like chewing gum, and it will hold it in for a LONG might not have to go to the dentist after all.

  7. Just wondering--does the tooth fairy bring money for crowns? ;)

  8. Some punchlines are better left unsaid.
