took a spill hiking? Among other injuries, I cracked a tooth. Which lead to getting a crown. And not the cool kind you can wear on your head. And when that didn't solve the problem, I was referred for a root canal in December. But before I could get there, I went through that bad break-up. With an endodontist, because my life is nothing if not rich in irony. Finally, however, the pain drove me to reschedule. On Valentine's Day. Because again, the irony of it all.
"Take away the sensation inside.
Bitter sweet migraine in my head.
Its like a throbbing toothache of the mind.
I can't take this feeling anymore.
Drain the pressure from the swelling.
The sensation's overwhelming.
Give me a long kiss goodnight
And everything will be alright.
Tell me that I won't feel a thing.
So give me novocaine." (Green Day)
