It’s not everyday that starts with a 9 a.m. dental visit (in the middle of a pandemic where you end up getting some restoration work done when you thought it was a quick and easy crown adjustment) and you end up thinking— “This is a good day.”
My dental staff had a very gentle touch and it seems like (fingers crossed), I should have no more issues for a while.
The dentist was very optimistic as she set to work and I reminded her not to get too cocky, as dentistry has to be a lot like plumbing— the older the house gets the more you don’t know what you’ll find until you really get inside.
She liked my analogy.
I also told herself about the time they gave me so much Novocain, I went to blow my nose and almost exploded my ear drums because I couldn’t feel anything coming out because my nostrils were numb.

In other news, I took these cheap fish nuggets and made fish/cabbage tacos. I dressed them with bacon ranch.
I planned to use my lunch break today to host a business meeting with my supervisor from my new volunteer position. I’m helping a relatively new non-profit hone their grant-writing skills and work out some communications strategies. I’m hosting a meeting with their summer interns tonight.
The news that we would be hosting someone in our home sent the teenager into a cleaning frenzy.
When our afternoon guest departed, the teenager turned to me and said, “It was so nice to hear the two of you talking.”
