So, I went to the dentist Monday, because 1) I had an appointment and 2) my jaw is swollen and has been hurting lately. Bear in mind I haven't been to the dentist in about 11 years, but I walked in and they did the medical routine; Are you taking any prescriptive drugs, do you smoke, yada, yada, yada. I sat in the chair for about 25 minutes before the actual dentist could see me, alright a wait not that big of a deal, I already knew the were going to tell me my teeth were bad anyways. Not a huge deal, I just read the book I've been reading while I waited. I don't have insurance and this place I had gone to are doing a sliding scale, $30 a visit and the rest gets written of in their taxes as good deeds to the community.
I'm getting off subject, so anyways. The dentist had a field day with my teeth, rambling off long, medical terms for decay and cavities. The teeth picture they use looked very prettily colored. I'm not saying I am great with dental care, it was the way I was raised. I was never told take care of your teeth or even yelled at to brush them, but again I am getting off the topic. Where was I... oh, right, my jaw has been hurting because I have been chewing the heck out of the side of my mouth, right on the muscle. So she told me that I have a 60% overbite, and all 4 of my wisdom teeth have to come out before they can do anything else with them. I pretty much just said great let's get it over with and she told me that they didn't do any extractions at that office and told go to an oral surgeon who will be asking for $350 per tooth! Are they crazy?? My teeth are not worth 350 DOLLARS! I didn't even get any money from the Tooth Fairy, let alone pay someone to take my teeth!
So my teeth need to be pulled and I don't have the money. Great! Could my life get any worse? Next thing you know, I'm going to come down with rabies, staphylococcus, gangrene and swine flu! Fuck my life!
In other news, Louisville is getting closer to my grasp and I'm liking the sounds of that! Yay!
Laterz, you guys!

  1. Ugh. I am right there with you. My wisdom teeth are all impacted and I have been putting off the extractions for a couple of years. The pain comes and goes. I do have insurance, but I am scared of going under the knife, and I'm pretty sure the insurance won't cover it all... I sure wish I would've had them cut out in high school, when I was still covered by my parents insurance, didn't yet smoke, and had less fear.

  2. Hahahaha, I take no offense at your 5 songs, in fact, I am honored!! And oh, by the way, I had lunch in your old Wick's back on Friday in Middletown!

  3. Amber- going under is really not that big of a deal, Its like heavy sleeping through an earthquake, you dont realize its going on until you wake up.

    Meaty- I hate you!! I need to eat me some wicks, :( I miss that place. Who was your server?

  4. Don't wait on your teeth. It may seem like no big deal but you can get infections if you wait long enough and then you might die.

  5. 350 pop,1400 for take out those teeth. Thats quite expensive i see you got a lot of valuables in your mouth. lol

    I really hope you get them taken out as soon as passable maybe i could bring them to the auction. lol
