The oral surgeon said, "I can't in good conscience recommend surgery to you unless your wisdom teeth are, you know, actually bothering you," and I said, "I'm okay with that!" and that was that. Whew. Insurance wasn't going to cover the IV anesthetic: $600, and I'm pretty sure they weren't going to allow me to show up all schnockered and go on from there. Also, I'm too old for an enjoyable recovery period, they said. I'da had to take a week to ten days off work and it would have been painful. So I'll just, you know, try not to chew in the back or something, and hope for the best. No prob.

In Mary logic, that means I have $600 to spend! Yay! Add that to the several thousand I saved not moving to Taos this year, and OH YES. We's going to have some fun around here. I can hear my credit cards squeaking in alarm already.

Also, the nurse told me dental surgery was the easiest nursing job she'd had, and patted my hand when I told her I was a floor nurse and shook her head. She said, "I could only manage it for one year after nursing school. Good for you for sticking in there!" Heh. Now I feel all brave and can-do and shit. We'll just ignore the fact that most of the people I know have been floor nurses for 4987908 years. That way I don't have to feel so much like a quitter when I do, in fact, quit. QUIT QUIT QUIT. I can't wait. Good for me.

In other news, I'm wearing a skort today. I don't even want to hear it, okay?

Oh, question. How do you get the fake tanning stuff to not streak all up and down your legs? Right now I look like someone's been fingerpainting on me. Which would be cool if the streaks were, say, red and yellow and blue. Not so much brown, though. It just looks yuck.

    One time on the bus, JC had fallen asleep slumped against the window with his face pressed to the glass. Chris had been just about to jab a finger…
