My superhero name is:Thanks to Grace for sharing it on Facebook. It brought a smile to my face. Only two other things have been good today:
The Aqua Mistress
Abandoned as a child, you grew up with an affinity for water - and then, you discover that you are the long-lost ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis! Now you must fight for control of the world's oceans, while also protecting humanity from evil! Aquatic Powers - You can breathe underwater, swim at incredible speeds, and communicate with undersea life! Now, you protect The Mystical City of Upak-Na from graffiti artists, while also battling the evil plans of Il Zuko!
- I got gas for $3.42 per gallon when the rest of town had gone up to $3.75, thanks to Speedway being a little slow to change and my Speedy card, which was good, as I was almost on empty.
- A friend called me early this morning to relay a conversation he had with his husband, who is incurably blond:
- A: You know, I've always wished I'd taken time during school to do a year abroad.
- YKWIA: Oh?
- A: Yes, I've always wanted to see Nantucket.
Mine started with the endodontist appointment. It was two hours before I got back to the chair, for which they apologised.At least two people came in after me and left before I got back. But that didn't bother me too much, for I'm pretty patient. I was just worried about all the time I was missing from work, with very little head's up to my bosses, neither of which I had had a chance to talk with about going that morning. The doctor couldn't make headway with the tooth, either, so she drilled a hole on the temporary crown and put some material in the tooth that will soften the calcification. I'm still just a bit numb from the Novocaine, which was given about 7 1/2 hours ago. I even had to have a shot in my palate, which stung a bit, but at least they'd numbed my gums. I then went to work, getting there about 12:15 (missing almost four hours) where I played catch-up all day and never quite made it. Fortunately I should be able to tomorrow. The day ended with me crying over something that happened, and while I realise I am somewhat hormonal and at least didn't get defensive or break down at the time, even though I suspect someone threw me under the bus, so to speak. I merely apologised for my part of the problem, rectified it, and then held it together until I was off work. But I decided it was time to call it quits, went ahead and packed up my things and left about 10 minutes early, crying as soon as I reached the parking lot. It's been a very, very long time since that has happened, and I'm embarrassed to admit that it did, but frankly, my tolerance for problems had been exhausted for the day.
Then I went to the pharmacy to fill the endodontist's prescriptions, pick up some pen needles, and get a friend's medications for him. I stopped by Kroger and got a few things, and then got the gas and picked up a bottle of wine for my monthly libation. I did not go see my friends, because even though I would probably feel better, I doubt I'm great company at the moment. But the one just called asking me to drop off his medicine tonight. So I will. But then I'm coming home and the plan is to pretty much stay in for the night. I'm tempted to just go on to bed, but I feel that would be letting my mood win. So instead I'm going to try to relax and enjoy the rest of the evening.
