I have basically no idea of what this new health-care legislation really means, except that in a few years I will required to pay for health insurance (I don't currently have any) and will be fined if I don't. I haven't yet seen a straightforward explanation of its benefits.

Today I had to go in for a dental appointment. I had a root canal a year and a half ago, and I was finally ready to get a crown put on that tooth. The dentist said he likes to wait a year after the root canal to make sure the tooth has settled properly. I had the bite adjusted a year ago, so it was just now a year since then.

I had a filling done on another tooth along with getting the temporary crown, so all told today's appointment took about an hour and a half. The procedure wasn't all that awful. I mean, it was not my idea of a good time, but it wasn't as bad as I expected.

For the next three weeks, I have to wear the temporary crown while my permanent one is being constructed. I'm to avoid chewing on the right side of my mouth for three weeks. Oh, that will be enjoyable. The only thing I ate today was ice cream. Okay, so that part was fun. I love ice cream. I just can't live off of it for three weeks, unfortunately. I also hope the temporary crown stays on for the full period.

Try to avoid ever getting a root canal. Seriously. It's inconvenient and annoying.
