I'm sitting here listening to an Indigo Girls playlist on YouTube. It's been a while since I listened to them, and oh man, how I've missed these beautiful melodies. They're like the female version of Simon and Garfunkel. They make me want to learn to play the guitar. Their music reminds me of my carefree … Continue reading What Would You Give for your Kid Fears?
I got my temporary lower bridge last week. It is a strange feeling to have something foreign in my mouth. Despite having had all kinds of weird apparatuses (I really feel like the plural of apparatus should be apparati, but apparently it's not) in my younger days, I can't say I welcomed the introduction of this … Continue reading Temporary Discomfort
Last time I wrote I was excited because I went through my dentist appointment without having my bridgework removed. My doctor has since acquired the necessary tools to remove my lower bridge, so that was how I spent this Wednesday morning. I made a quick video about it when I got home tonight.

I haven't even taken time to do my morning Zentangles this week, which is an outrage. Here are some of the things I've been up to: Last Saturday … Continue reading A Brief Recap of Recent Life
1. When you refer to your implants and people look questioningly at your chest. 2. Not being able to feel if you have spinach, seeds, bread - anything - stuck on, in-between or around your teeth. 3. Getting massive quantities of food stuck underneath the bridgework. 4. Needing to use a WaterPik to feel like … Continue reading Awkward Moments with Artificial Teeth
This past Thursday I had to get a root canal. I've had two before and found them to be among the least annoying dental procedures I've ever had. Despite that knowledge, I still felt that familiar sense of impending doom as the hours passed and my appointment time drew nigh. Logically, I know that I … Continue reading Oral Fixations
