The last time I bought almond M&M's I broke a tooth. "But I like them", I thought. "But I'll chew carefully", I promised. Guess what? I think I cracked another tooth. One of these years I am going to make it through the entire year without major dental work. To make matters worse, I am only days away from re-starting my dental insurance. Yes, I foolishly cancelled a few years ago when I thought I was very close to retiring early and I had a brilliant idea to get my dental work done in Mexico. Well, since then I have decided that taking 2 days off of work and walking across the border is more trouble than it is worth. Plus, guess which tooth is broken? Yes, my Mexican crowned tooth.
Next week I go to court to get guardianship of my nephew. Since guardianship is considered one of those "life moments", I can add him on to my insurance and add dental. My tooth only hurts when I eat cold food so I just have to make sure everything is room temperature for the next few weeks. I think I can make it.
