Three Things Thursday

You know how sometimes, things just come together? Like, almost by magic?

Yeah, this was not one of those weeks.

If you want rainbows, check out my post from earlier for HAWMC. If you're in for a heaping helping of grump city, you've come to the right place.

1. More evidence that cereal is trying to kill me: While noshing on my Honey Nut Chex yesterday morning, I felt an unusual crunch. I expected to find any number of things: a stale cereal piece, some plastic, maybe a human finger. I didn't expect to find half a tooth. So, dental-phobic me got to spend an hour and a half with my dentist up to his elbows in my oral region. Added bonus: I get a crown, which must mean I'm royalty. Downside: Other than pain, inconvenience, and a general sense of terror that all of my teeth are going to fall out (thanks, celiac!), I also got a hefty bill. I wonder if I can make installment payments on my tooth?

2. After a nice visit with my gastro last week, it was determined that the double-dose of fun I'd been hoping to avoid was inevitable. So, in two weeks I'll be living the dream of an endoscopy/colonoscopy duo. To say I'm nervous is an understatement. Those of you who've been through it, please tell me it's not that bad. Even if you have to lie. Added pressure: I'm having this all done three days before the GFAF Expo I'm covering. Downside: Not sure how I'm going to feel. Upside: I hear that the prep essentially cleans out meals that you have yet to eat, so that means I'll be nice and hungry for all those GF samples.

3. Oh, screw it. Let's all just go and eat Glutino toaster pastries, okay?

  1. My teeth crumbling and falling out is also my recurring fear. I had a similar situation of a tooth breaking mid-bite when I was a kid (turned out it had been dead & hollow for quite a while), and it comes back every once in a while!
