|One World butterfly shirt, overpriced but gorgeous|
I was able to walk-in that day, and the dentist tells me it'll hold till my next appointment, but WHAT A BUMMER. Expense, hassle, and a feeling that this is a harbinger of my old age. Since childhood I have had dreams of my teeth falling out. Now I'm living it.
Did I mention my out-of-pocket costs?
In my younger days I read many editions of Don Quixote by Cervantes. My litmus test for a translation was how a particular passage on teeth translated into English. In the best English translation Don Quixote says that "Every tooth in a man's head is more valuable than a diamond." Some of the other editions made no reference to diamonds and the passages were totally mundane.
Teeth really are like diamonds.

I have to admit, I feel better. And it's a good thing.
The shirt and shoes will likely be my ensemble at the awards banquet I'm going to this Friday.
