Like a True Boat Bum
Wednesday night Kristi and I met up with my Son Michael and his girlfriend Stephanie for a great dinner at a hole-in-the-wall Japanese restaurant that we have had bad luck getting to while they are actually open. It was good times. However, as we were sitting in their apartment for the evening digesting, I continued to play with a tooth that had been acting kind of funny for a few days. All of a sudden there was a 'pop' and I felt the tooth move! Wow, flash backs to being 6 years old!
Long story short: A tooth that had a crown placed on it a few years ago broke off at the gum line. A trip to the dentist yesterday where he grabbed it with his fingers and with a small tug pulled the whole tooth out confirmed things could not be repaired.
Oh Well. I will have it fixed (implant) over the next few months, but for now I am taking on the appearance of a True Boat Bum - Missing Teeth!
