see ya later, #19.


i’ve got a rotten tooth. you can see the cute little swell on the side of my gums. sick.

i went to the dentist on tuesday, and they didn’t tell me anything i didn’t already know (because there are three dental students in our connection group and they know what’s up). the verdict is that i’m getting this sucker ripped out next thursday. super fun.

tooth #19 is my arch-nemesis. almost as soon as it grew in when i was a kid, a huge cavity formed, for no apparent reason. so i got a filling. then, when i was 18, the existing tooth around the filling just broke off when i was at a barbecue with some friends. cute. so i had a root canal, refilled the tooth, and put a nice crown on top of all of that. and now, 5 years later, the infection is back with a vengeance and the dentist recommended that we don’t give the tooth any more chances. and although i’m pretty sure it’s a heck of a lot more expensive to get an implant, i’m pretty convinced it will be better in the long run.

    I think you should blog again. It's been a while since we've seen you on here and the picture of your mouth on my top sites is starting to gross me out.
    If I might make a request… one of my favorite things is when you retell side-splitting hilarious stories about your life that I can entirely relate to cause your sorta like my twin. I think you call that section the “'member that time”. That or you could do a post on the birds living in your grill or an update on how your yearly goals are coming along since the year will be 25% over in a couple weeks.
    Whatever you will do I know it will be awesome. You have the wit and words to wow the masses of blog-followers (a.k.a. stalkers or admirers) out there.
