Tarzan and Teeth

Last night I slept for 14 hours. I couldn’t believe it. I woke up feeling better than I have in a long time. Then I had to go to the dentist. Over the fourth of July weekend, one of my veneers fell off. It happens way too often. This time the dentist said we should just get a crown done. I agree. Of course my insurance doesn’t pay for it, but he offered me a great deal so I said to go for it.

That meant a shot so my face was numb for quite a while. Oops. He’s a good dentist but the drill slipped and he hit my gums. Not quite numb enough. That hurt like hell and I could taste the blood fill my mouth up. I go back in another month to get the crown put on.

Suddenly, the amount of sleep I had didn’t matter. I felt like crap again. No time to worry about it though. Off I go to run errands. First the pharmacy. Two for me and one for Frankie. He had an allergic reaction to a medicine over the fourth of July weekend so we had to get a replacement. Poor kid.

Then the lawnmower repair place. Dropped off a part. Have to get it tomorrow. Phew, that was relatively uneventful.

Groceries next. I go to Aldi’s and I pack my groceries in the back hatch of my car. We were down to almost nothing in the house so it was an overloaded cart. I open the trunk. Damn. I forgot. With all the moving at Dad’s, I have boxes and blankets filling it up to take back to his place. I move them all to the back seat and finish loading the groceries.

Driving home, I decided I deserved an iced capp or something. When I got to Tim Horton’s I discovered they have iced lemonade. That made me very happy because McDonald’s decided not to this year which was massively disappointing. I get my luscious lemonade and head home. Damn. Not so luscious. I forgot my face is half numb which makes it very difficult to drink through a straw. You would have enjoyed a video watching that one.

Next task is walking the dog. Taffy didn’t get a walk yesterday so she was really ready to go. I opened the back seat door to let her in. Crap. Now I have the boxes and blankets in the back seat so I could put the groceries in. I move them all back to the hatch again. Honestly, do you ever just feel like you are spinning in circles? Story of my life today… LOL.

What does all this have to do with Tarzan? Not a damn thing. Just wanted to tell you I saw Tarzan two nights ago with some friends and it was stupendous. Very intense. I haven’t been all worked up like that over a movie in a while. The social injustice, the character that you need to see dead by the end of the movie or life just isn’t right, all that stuff. I know it’s a legend but I’m curious if any of it is true. Very strong and poignant moments if you are conscious about the world at all. Just loved it.

Now that I’ve said all the grown-up stuff, let’s face it. The best part is that Tarzan is more than eye-candy. He make me want to be Jane. Me Jane. Holy crap, he is one fine specimen of a male. I sighed several times, especially after he was only in his loin cloth. Raised by apes, maybe, but less of an ape that most of the men I’ve met. Hot, hot, hot. Seriously, you should go watch it if you haven’t.

I need to go take a shower now. Cold.
