Wherein I say Nothing

Yup, you got it right. A whole lot of NUTHIN going on around here. Except for working my ass off. And still eating soup-like substances. Although I figured out what the problem with the bloody root canal was. The filling was too high!

Yup, I was lying in bed prodding at my sore tooth and wondering why, after 3 different types of antibiotics, it still hurt. I figured at this point the only bacteria left in my body must be in the tooth! Which still hurt like a mo-fo. Suddenly I thought, "wait a minute! Why does the tooth
on the top hurt????" I went into the dentist the next day and he had me bite down on a little piece of carbon paper. Now, we had done this twice before. But the first time I bit down, I was still frozen from the procedure. The second time I hurt a LOT. So I didn't bite down very hard. This time I clamped down hard. The dentist looked and went "WOW! Yup, that's high" and filed a lot of the filling down. I feel much better now. But now that the pain has mostly subsided, I can still feel the damn filling. So I'm gonna hafta go back and have him file it some more.

Moral of the story boys and girls??? Bite HARD.
