DREADFUL DENTAL DRAMA

I wasn’t going to write about this, but then I got outed by a friend in the comments.

Brief time line:

Crown came off molar

Palm Sunday- Tooth cracked-lengthwise.

Gets inflamed

Thursday- Dentist says tooth cannot be saved. Go to oral surgeon to get his opinion.

Good Friday- Oral surgery

Blur of pain, grossness, soft foods.

Wednesday- Solid food. Big mistake.

Thursday- Queasy, bruised and jaw feels fractured.

Tomorrow- Follow-up with surgeon.

So, Easter dinner was canceled at my house and baskets (which  I enjoy) did not get filled. It was all a bit depressing and I am looking forward to Mother’s Day and having my family around me again. I was very grateful that the surgeon was able to fit me in before the holiday weekend.

I DO DECLARE

I will never again wear pantyhose unless it is in the dead of winter in an unheated castle to prevent chilblains.

Not to a fancy restaurant or a wedding or a funeral-not even my own.

If the colored tights trend continues, I’ll simply dye my legs from the knees down. Think of the money I will save!

When Southern women hit 50, we can make our own damn rules!

THE BEST PERFUME TO ATTRACT A MAN

My girlfriend told me her Irish perfume smelled like maple syrup after a few hours.

Men were following their noses to her and then talking about pancakes.

I said, “If you really want to attract a man, find a perfume that dries down to bacon.”

(I haven’t lived with Himself all these years for nothing.)

OVERHEARD-Tearoom

Beautiful, well-dressed lady telling her friend about another tearoom that she had recently visited, “The food was good but it was just a pick-up place.”

Friend, “Why do you say that?”

Lady, “The parking lot was full of pick-up trucks.”

Oh, dear. Wrong on so many levels.
