    A funny thing happened on the way to the dentist...

    The traffic was awful. Almost made me late to my appointment!

    I broke a tooth about 3 weeks ago and called the dentist office. They are open for emergencies only and will only repair my tooth when it starts to hurt. Thanks for the laugh.

    I chipped the back of a lower tooth last week. I am afraid right now to go out to the dentist so I am just putting it off . It doesn't hurt but it is annoying

      I also had a molar break. They gave me the "unless it hurts" line too. (New dentist because of new insurance.)
      When they called to postpone my appointment I had to explain that while that one didn't hurt, I was beginning to have what I suspected an abcess in a neighboring tooth. Apparently, an abcess gets an emergency appointment. They treated the abcessing tooth with a root canal, and at my insistence, ground down the sharp edge on the molar that broke. They didn't deal with that one though. They kept using the phrase, "which one is hurting?" I think that is the key phrase to get you an appointment.
      I have to say everything was extra clean, and everyone was as protected as possible.
      The dental assistant was pretty unhappy with the situation. She was concerned about becoming infected because she's working in people's faces all day. She was upset because she had lost so many hours because the office is only open 2 days a week. She also glad she still had a job. I'm not sure exactly how it all works, but it sounded like she wasn't eligible for financial help. She's not being able to work enough hours to pay the bills, but because she is still working some, she can't get unemployment. That's crap. I'm sure she wouldn't have said so much about her situation, but I kept chattering at her while we were getting X-rays and setting stuff up for the root canal.

          We sat there for about 10 min while two patrol cars showed up and looked like "what the heck are we supposed to do"? This guy was so massive. My dd and I agreed that he was a stud. 🤣He had to have been. They got a wire fence down on some ones property (to the right). We drove by and looked like he was saying What's the problem. lol

          I have goats and a few horses at that corner sometimes, but I'm glad I was in a car this time.
