Aggravations

This morning started with an unexpected (and unwelcome) trip to the dentist. Christmas evening I had a late snack of popcorn after closing the kennel and I managed to bite down on a kernel in just the wrong way, chipping a front tooth. Looking at the tooth, the chip didn’t appear too bad – just a bit of jaggedness, not too obvious if you weren’t looking for it. The problem was that it started hurting every time I used that tooth to bite something. Thankfully, the dentist had a cancellation and managed to fit me in this morning. He filled the new hole and told me to come back if it was still hurting within a week. Sigh.

My unemployment claim is still screwed up. According to the lady I talked to this morning, I may or may not hear from the person who can fix the problem tomorrow. If I don’t talk to that person tomorrow, I’ll be at the unemployment office when they open Wednesday morning (can’t go tomorrow morning, as I’m working at the kennel). I hope we get this fixed soon, since we’re now a couple of weeks behind.

On the up side, I got my hair cut after finishing up at the dentist’s this morning. I had the lady take off about three inches. Its not as short as I’d like, since I need it long enough to pull back at the kennel, but it’s a lot less annoying than it was a few hours ago.

Chipped your tooth on popcorn eh? Yeah right. I TOLD you not to open those beer bottles with your teeth.

...and when you go on an interview, they won't be favorably impressed with your ability to smash a beer can against your head...

I swear - when it rains it pours. And when umemployment screws up it usually takes them a long to fix...it is one messed up organization. Isn't it controled by the state / government...could explain it. I had something similiar happen and had to go in and they pushed one button (after a 2 hour wait) and it was magically fixed. Mary B.
