Not very many funny things went down today! I spent from 2pm until 5:30pm in a chair in the dentists office. Yuck. I am not one of those people who has a fear of the dentist but I don't necessarily enjoy going. Not only was I getting a cavity filled, at the age of 28, but the dentist recently convinced me that I needed a NEW crown. I know that normally only 80 year olds have crowns but I had to get one in college as a result of a "stress fracture" in my tooth. WTF? A stress fracture? I think that it is possible that dentists are pulling one over on us. So anyways the dentist today practically had to jackhammer the old crown out of my mouth. The difficulty he had removing the old crown is also a contributing factor to my belief that it wasn't necessity! At first I was irritated that the dentist numbed me up to my eyeball but I was thankful when all that drilling started. I didn't even mind that I was having difficulty blinking and I couldn't feel my ear due to numbness. Now I am watching The Biggest Loser on DVR while I can feel my heart beating in my face. Yeeeeooooowwwww.

And to think, I had to pay THEM to do that to me! $705! Ugh. The only thing that makes it better is that I put the money on my Flex Spending Account last month so my office has to pay for it. Too bad I won't be there after March to pay it back! :)
