Awesome

My day (at least my "work" day) started with me rear-ending a guy in the Mickey D's drive-thru (really, "rear-ending" is too strong a word. I started digging in my purse for change and didn't realize that my foot was sloooowly coming off of the brake--until WHACK. I just kissed the guy's bumper and there were no marks--but he was quite the dick about it, to be honest. A true accident with no damage whatsoever, not even a paint scratch? Is that REALLY worth getting all shitty over? But I digress). It ended with part of my tooth chipping off (got emergency appointment with dentist at 3--large cavity, will need filling and cap, no root canal). However, I'm going to dinner tonight with my 5th grade team so I'm really excited about that. It's become a Christmas tradition of sorts. The husband of one of my coworkers is the manager of a restaurant out on Sanibel Island (a very nice, rather ritzy island off of Ft Myers), and every year they invite L's fellow teachers (which, for 2 years now, has included yours truly) out for dinner on them (including drinks--holla!). Last year it was OBSCENE, with the husband just bringing out food by the tray full; since everyone is watching their budget a bit more carefully this year, I don't expect it to be quite as grand, but it still promises to be a great time.

And by the way: remember how last time I had teeth issues, I had had a DREAM about it just a few days prior? Well, it happened again this time. I shit you not, and I WISH I had posted about it so I had proof. It was maybe a week ago that I dreamt a tooth fell out and now, here we are again. Now last time, the dream was VERY specific--it was the exact tooth that later broke off and everything. This time, my dream wasn't that clear and I don't recall what tooth actually came out. Still, this is my 2nd "tooth premonition" in the last year or so. Next time I have a dream like that, I'm going to the dentist BEFORE my teeth start falling out.

I love Sanibel. The Missus and I used to stay at South Seas Plantation and were regulars at The Bubble Room.

Our party is at the Hard Rock Casino this year. And I thought the school district was hard up for money...

Did your tooth chip as a result of you kissing d-bags bumper or is chipped tooth just something that happened in the course of your day? The whole tooth dream/loss thing is creepy.
Here's Sanibel was awesome, if for no other reason than to make up for your kinda crappy day.

I love how nonchalant you are about your teeth falling out! I'd be freaking OUT if my teeth were falling out! And yeah, the dreams about it are even freakier.

Sorry the guy was a douche about your little bump... and glad it wasn't any harder, lest you fuck up your neck again :-)

How was the Christmas dinner?

The dinner was GREAT. The other people on my team are all married with kids, so they're not regular members of our "meetings" and are not people I normally hang out with. So it was fun to see them in a more social setting (there was one other couple there in addition to my team, who ARE friends of mine--he was a 5th grade teacher last year and somehow finagled an invite for this year too). So yes, it was a lot of fun, and some of us even stayed afterwards for additional "bonding."

Other than throwing up the seafood that they MADE me eat and clearly didn't understand how STRONG my aversion to seafood is (I was okay with the small bites of stone crab, but once they made me eat--I cant remember what it's called, but it's the name sounds like "critter" or SOMETHING--but once they made me eat a whole one of those, I KNEW right away that that bad boy wasn't staying down. Seriously, if it lives in the sea, I ain't eatin' it. I TRIED to be a good sport, and this place was practically ON the gulf, and as everyone says, "You can't live here and NOT eat seafood"...but apparently, yes, yes I can.)

But yeah, it was a fun night.

Oh yeah, and PS, it was just a tooth that had a big ol' cavity in it, and as I was flossing it part of it chipped off. It's not THAT big of a deal to me--that's why God invented crowns. =-)

Sounds like a fun Christmas party minus the puking.
I found Liz B on Facebook. She's still at DMX and they had their holiday party last week. They used to throw damn good holiday parties but she said they don't allow booze anymore, so that ruined it for me ;)
