Jealous of the crunch…

I feel like the girl on a diet that jealously watches people eat.

A really awful terrible diet.

I spent most of the afternoon Monday in the dentist's office. Unable to make time for the repair, they asked me to come back yesterday to get...


A root canal.


Now I have matching temps, one on each side of my mouth just like I imagined.

Instead of being limited to chewing on one side I'm limited to chewing on no sides. That's right folks, I'm on a liquid diet.

We had already made plans a week ago to go to Taco Tuesday last night with everyone so I couldn't exactly back out.

Every time I heard the crunching of people chewing their delicious chips and salsa, I dreamed it was me. I was jealous of their teeth that could masticate so perfectly.

The dentist prescribed me $20.00 Vicodin - but guess who Vicodin has absolutely no effect on?

*I raise my hand*

Would you like to know what does work? A $4.00 Strawberry Margarita... or two.

Sorry mom.

But let me tell you something, I ate chips AND a taco last night -

Cheers!





And yes, my teeth feel like crud today.

Thanks for giving me memories of having my wisdom teeth removed, I was sure I would never be able to eat chips and salsa again.

Hang in there, surely it will get better?!?...
