My day in summary

I had two fillings replaced this morning. Yes, by my dentist, not just some whackjob on the street.
Then I went to work. The dentistry put me in a bad mood all day. So, I eventually left.
I shopped at Giant on the way home. This was made possible by the miracle of direct deposit.
After making it home, I took drugs (hooray pain relief!) and did useful things like laundry, dishes, and mowed the lawn.
I'm still doing useful things, but while I wait for my machinery to finish what it's working on (e.g. laundry and dishes), now is the time to talk about my productive day. And take more painkillers.

For some reason, I found this very funny. Street dentists on every corner...

I am pleased you are amused
Where I work, there are street dentists on every corner. Two types, even. There are the Dental School students, and there are the muggers ("gimme your wallet or I'll knock your teeth out"). One provides a higher quality service than the other, mind you.

Yes, but which is which?

That's a question that can best be answered on an individual caregiver-by-caregiver basis.

And, just as a reminder, the American Dental Association would like to remind you that chocolate-covered manhole covers are bad for your teeth.

The male unit I got rarely does the dishes (eczema) and never mows the lawn (allergies and severe respiratory issues) but he did sing "I feel pretty" using the voice of the Swedish Chef.

Yes, but can he do "Feelings" as performed by Beaker?

I am not going to even ask. Frankly, that would worry me :)

It's not hard to picture.

I have been sitting here wondering what they were replaced with.

radio transmitters?

tiny obelisks to collect and focus powers beyond the ken of man?

little spigots attached to beer pumps?

Conveniently, he replaced them with (get ready for it) new fillings. I'd really find it convenient if he could arrange for teleport receivers so that I could have beer teleported directly to my mouth. No luck on that one yet.

I just can't imagine why.

All sarcasm-o-meters go to 11. Otherwise they run the risk of being crushed by a dwarf.

I'm in favor of dwarf crushing. I think there's laws against it, though.

You see, it's one more. You know, when I need that little bit extra.

Emperor Zurg (arch-nemesis of Buzz Lightyear) has an ion blaster on his arm. It goes to 11.
