I am happy to report that my blog seems to be recovering. It is now only missing two comments that I made as tests and I can live with that. The missing comments all seem to be associated with a post that I made on August 6th. I don’t know any significance to that date so I am not sure why this weird thing happened. If anything weird was going to happen, it should be today. Am I the only one who realized that today is 8-8-08? I made a note of it at 8 am this morning but nothing really happened so I let it go. It was like that Y2K thing. What a let down.
I am also feeling better now so I am on the road to recovery myself. I have had a stomach ache for several days now. No I didn’t go to a doctor because I know more than doctors so I prefer to self diagnose my own illnesses. Right now I have it pinned down to one of three things. First: Food poisoning. I ate some cantaloupe that I believe was grown alongside those bad peppers. I am almost certain of it. Second: Stomach virus. If this is the culprit then I got it from several sicko’s here at work who refuse to take vacation time when they are sick. The third possible cause is an overactive thyroid. I have been toying with this idea for some time and
I will continue to do some research.
Now for the bad news. I went to the dentist the other day and I have a ton of problems in my mouth. I have a mouth full of fillings which are over 30 years old and most of them are coming lose or cracking. I need a total dental makeover. The good news is that they can fix everything for a mere 15,000.00. What a deal!!! Yes you read that right 15,000.00. Let me compare that to my Honda car which I paid the same amount for. So are my teeth worth that much? They are to me but for the life of me, I can’t imagine why it should cost so much to fix teeth. The x-rays are now done digitally. Most of the crowns will be made of some inexpensive composite. A little numbing agent. I mean how hard could it be? So Don’t Cry for me Evita. I have several other options
First off my friends and family say I can fix everything. It is true. If I put my mind to it and have the time and energy, I can do almost anything. Option one is to fix them myself. And it isn’t like I would be a pioneer in this field. Someone did it many years ago:
Option two is even easier. It involves a bottle of tequila, a pair of pliers and a mirror. I can do this. I know I can. I am sure I can find some used dentures at the flea market once I get the bad teeth out.
Option is three is my greatest idea of all time. I found a dentist that will do it for a fraction of the cost. I would have to drive a little ways and maybe stay in a rundown hotel but I know in the long run it will be for the better. Can you say Mexican Dentist? I have always wanted to go to Tijuana.
Have a wonderful day and brush those teefees people,
