Helga the Horrible Goes to the Reunion
In a matter of days, we attend the Tree Hugger's 50th reunion at the College of Wooster in Wooster, OH.
Some people try to lose weight before a reunion.
Others lose teeth, without even trying.
I am going to feel like Helga at that reunion. I had to have a lower front tooth pulled on Tuesday. I'm still pretty self-conscious about it. I'd had two root canals on this tooth, so it was fragile to begin with. I really shouldn't have held that pillow in my mouth while changing the pillowcase. Anyway, the root cracked and the tooth is gone.
I'll have to put up with a gap in my grin for at least four weeks. It's not pretty, but eating and talking pose no problems. I think I can have a good time at the reunion anyway.
