Hey, that's what happens when you visit Chez Brick...you get a sampling of all sorts of ideas!
Like this set of photos that look photoshopped...but according to the report, aren't. One of the strangest has got to be this one...
More photos here (including some very cool cloud effects).
Plus ten of the world's most famous doctored photos.
And eleven 'curiously coincidental' photos. Including this one:
It has not been a fun day. Spent a big chunk of the morning getting ground down, buzzed at and fitted for a crown. (Not the royal kind, unfortunately.) The best part was having the dental assistant give me a big glob of grape-y stuff to bite down on. Instant pain -- something was cutting into my cheek! But I couldn't protest because it was filling my mouth. "Hold still for 5 minutes," she said. I concentrated on doing just that, and eventually the pain dulled.
Finally, she pulled out the mold (because that's what it was)-- and looked disgusted. "Well, we can't use this -- it's all bloody." I wonder why! (The second attempt was successful, and thankfully didn't hurt.)
Two more weeks of only chewing on one side of the mouth. (It will be about 5 weeks total, including the time for the root canal.) And the crowning glory (or insult) for both root canal and crown will be the bill: approx. $2400.
For. just. one. tooth. I told the Brick if we ever get mugged, forget about me. Just protect that tooth!
