The other night I was munching on a post dinner snack that I love from the very bottom of my heart.
I know from the heading you were expecting to hear about the worst date I’ve ever had. Let me tell you it was a doosie! Because I’m such a turkey (that’s what I call my ornery kiddos at school) …I’ll save all of that hilariousness for another day. This is about the worst date I’ve ever had, like for nourishment. The worst date food wise…
Back to the other night. Actually, first I need to tell you that two weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to play with my nephew. While we were playing, I was chewing on gum and stopped cold in my tracks. I noticed something hard in my gum. I knew right away that it was part of a filling. I have the WORST. TEETH. EVER. It wasn’t that big, it didn’t hurt, I wasn’t too worried about it. I decided to call the dentist because it was jagged and kind of hurt my tounge.
The dentist said “Oh, you’ll need a crown. Yep…… That’s not good. You’re going to need a crown for sure!Darn.”…You’re telling me, dentist. You’re telling me. Bummer.
Yah, we’re not talking this kind of crown.^^ I could deal with that kind of crown!!! ….We’re talking: saw off half of your tooth, make you want to jump out of the dentist chair, take three dentist appointments to fix, miss work three times, and unexpectedly cost you $693 *with* insurance kind of crown. I know, I am a lucky girl.
So, that was two weeks ago- right side of my mouth. I can not eat anything on this side… Then like I said, I was eating one of my favorite post supper snacks and then….
I bit down on a pit in the middle of a pitted date! Holy OUCH! Seriously- ouch! ***I thought they were supposed to be pitted!?!?!??*** Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I can not believe this is happening to me! :( Now, the left side of my moth is killing me, for real. It hurts. AND, I can’t eat on anything on the right side of my mouth due to the crown preparation. I called the dentist today and the receptionist is hoping that it is just a bruised nerve…. but I know in my heart of hearts that I’ll need another crown. It hurts when I bite down and it hurts when I eat *anything* with sugar in it. This is a sign that something is wrong with the filling….. This is my 3rd crown in 3 months! So, here’s to the unexpected bill of $2,079 since September and yet another crown in my mouth.
