Well, I just spent more than half of my stimulus money

and I haven't even received it yet. Late Saturday morning I was eating my favorite breakfast: veggie sausage patty with a buttered biscuit and cup of cinnamon tea. I had nearly finished when I bit down on a portion of the patty that was a bit chewy and CRUNCH! I fractured a tooth, the premolar on the upper left side. Today was my first opportunity to visit my dentist. 2 hours later, and $775 lighter, I feel like I've been kicked in the teeth by a mule. 2 ibuprofen and some whisky and water later, I'm feeling a bit better. Fortunately, the fracture was such that they think I can get by with just a crown, and not a root canal. I now have a temporary crown, some gum damage, and with the applied antibiotics, I am on the way to healing. Sux to be me.
