It�s 75 degrees in my apartment and I am under 2 blankets and I am still freezing cold.
I tried finishing my book in a steaming hot bath that made the walls drip with sweat and that didn�t help either.
Not unlike Jon Travolta in the last few minutes of Grease I�ve got the chills and they�re multiplying.
I�ve caught a bug, starshines. And I am now quite miserable.
Reason #56 to consider marriage: there�s a warm body around to run to the Walgreens and fetch me some NyQuil �
(that ranks right before �someone to take out the garbage� but after �someone to play with my hair�)
At any rate, I left work early today thinking I�d just take a nap and feel better. I was all ha-ha! Hookey day!
Joke�s on me. My head feels the size of a medicine ball.
What�s worse, I went in to have the root canal started yesterday. So, that extra pain makes my day extra special.
Did I mention I turn into Crabbywhinycrankypants when I am illin�?
It�s pathetic, I know. I can barely stand myself either.
But about that tooth. I was so busy over the weekend I had no time to consider the pain, so I was white-knuckling-it through most of the procedure.
It took a million shots of Novocain to even get me to a decent level of comfort, but finally, the dentist just had to bring out the nitrous.
�Have you ever had nitrous oxide?� he asked.
First thing to pop in my head, �you mean legally?�
But I was in no mood to joke, it was that bad.
So, he put on the mask and he said he�d keep it at a low level, so it barely even helped. But I made it through this first procedure all right. He says it�ll be better when I come back.
So, I went to pay my deductible to the lady at the front desk and she said she�d go ahead and put in the nitrous claim to my insurance company but a lot of times, they don�t cover it.
So I may have to pay an extra $60.
Which would be fine had I thought it actually helped. But I gotta tell you, next time I go in on March 11th to finish the procedure up � once he puts that mask on I am going to tell him to crank that mother up
For. Real. If I am going to pay for it, may as well make it worth my while.
Next time, if I am not deliriously relaxed in the first 15 minutes I am just gonna have to be all:
�What are you trying to do to me Doc? Do I have to get back there and crank that shit up myself? Let�s go! Make that bitch hiss!�
Or, you know, something.
Thanks for listening to thecrappywhinycrankypants girl. I�m gonna go lay down now.
