wednesday, i went to the dentist to have a tooth that broke when i was pregnant with velzy fixed (it has only been 3 years...). a few weeks ago when i went to have my teeth x-rayed for the first time in over 3 years the dentist said "you have found religion, your teeth look great!" and i was stoked because i have somewhat cavity prown teeth. so you can imagine my dismay while as i sat to have my teeth cleaned on wednesday, i was informed that i have 7 cavities (yes, you read that right. my teeth suck.), one of which may need a root canal. apparently my x-ray's "slipped through the cracks" last time i was there and the dentist didn't get a chance to look at them.
i really do take good care of my teeth. really good care of them, i just like candy (which i am swearing off of for the rest of my life.). so dr. brown thought he would take care of the really bad one while i was there instead of my broken tooth. so i said a multitude of prayers hoping that "the decay" as they kept calling it had not reached the nerve and walked back to "the chair." the big guy upstairs helped me out big time and i don't think that i need a root canal. so far there is no pain in my tooth (good sign) and i go back after we return from california in july to get a permanent filling and have some other cavities taken care of.
the plan for the afternoon was that i would go take care of my broken tooth and then drive to town to pick up a new surfboard. however, after this depressing turn of events i didn't feel worthy of such a treat- or spending money on toys when i am going to have to spend a butt-load of money on my "decaying" teeth. so after calling luke a million times and even calling adam to see what he thought (i have really bad indecision), i drove to town and treated myself, actually luke treat me, he is the best. (one of the benefits of living in a small one bedroom apartment and having a semi-cheap rent is that you don't feel to amazingly bad when you splurge a little)
i think i love her and until she gets a name she will be known as "orange crush." now if i could just arrange for a head high summer north swell to come marching through these parts...
