Root canal = survived.

New doctor was pretty cool. She had me laughing while working on things, so mad props. I might request her next time. That is, if I can every afford to go to the dentist ever again. Yeesh. I distinctly remember a time when I had this thing called 'disposable income.'

Now, waiting patiently for the novocaine to wear off, and for Giant to fill my new (and of course expensive) prescription.

Expensive? What did you get? I think the last time I got Vicodin, it was suprisingly cheap.
Myabe you got something better?

Oh, the drugs are just cheap (thanks to insurance.) it's the dental procedures that are expensive (despite insurance.)

I think there is something very perverse with dental plans.

Most of the ones that I've been a part of are happy to share the expense of a regular exam (the costs most us could afford out of pocket even without insurance), and don't want to pay anything for the expensive stuff like surgery, root canals, crowns, and so forth (the stuff we'd really like insurance to cover).

I had to have a crown put on a few months ago. I think my share of the cost was $1,100 or so. Ouch.

Man, that explains why you were all out of it today. I hope you feel better! And once Maia gets that zebra meat smuggling ring going, you'll have millions of extra cash.

Thank goodness that's over. Give me a hollah when your wallet and teeth are in sushi-eating condition.
