The usual ... junk drawer

I cannot believe this, but according to my new dentist I have THREE cavities. One of which supposedly is in between two teeth. Is that even possible? Apparently I have deep pits and weak enamel and prescription rinse is just the cure. When I was a kid, I was always a member of the no-cavity club. Once I even won a giant stuffed kangaroo for my efforts. I don't know what's going on here.

Do not tell me I drink too much Coke. I am not listening.

Matt's dad is alive and well. We've known that for a few days, but I forgot to say so on here. Sorry about that.

I worked from home today because I needed to get a good start on the Greensburg article, because I'm going there Monday and Tuesday and need to know enough to ask intelligent questions, but I was strangely unproductive. Normally when I stay away from the office I get twice as much done as usual.

Tonight I was reminded once again that I don't have a go-to "most embarassing moment" story to pull out for cheesy icebreakers. I do and say stupid things all day long, but they're never the stuff of great stories.

Until I was 20 years old I thought the purpose of flossing was to keep your teeth from growing too close together, and that's embarassing, but see how it's not a great story? It's also not the kind of thing you want to advertise. I don't mind announcing that on a blog because I can't see you laughing from here.

Telling a story about your favorite scar is a better icebreaker activity. :)

I say things all the time that make my husband wonder how on earth I got through graduate school, haha.

Ha ha. I'm not laughing at you, really. It's very endearing.

And...you probably drink too much coke. It's true! It's true! The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. lol.

My husband has weak enamel on his teeth too. And he is a slave to Mountain Dew.

I find working from home to be super productive too. It helps to not have interruptions and people to talk to. I hope tomorrow is more productive:) Happy almost Friday!
