Naturally I had a big presentation today

This morning, as I was getting ready for today's big client presentation, I lost a tooth. It just popped off. Fortunately it was a porcelain crown, so there's no pain. It was embarrassment I was worried about. I didn't want to look like Hillbilly Gal as I stood at the head of the conference table, presenting new ways to excite consumers about investing in mutual funds while I had a conspicuous hole in my smile.

Since the tooth is lower left, towards the back, it doesn't show when I talk. The crown is now safely in a little blue case along with my teeth whitening tray. Hopefully my dentist will be able to just affix it back in place.

In the meantime, I suppose I should be glad that the presentation went off without a hitch, and grateful that life throws these little curves at me so I'm never bored.


  1. Hey! I had a dream last night that my canine tooth - the sharp pointy ones on the top - just fell completely out while I was at a social event with a ton of people. I was so afraid that I would look like some hillbilly, but I was more distracted by the fact that there was no bleeding. Weird huh? Then I come and read your post. I sure hope my dream didn't manifest itself in your world ;0) If so I'll try to send the dreams of knights in shining armor (or world championships) your way.

  2. Hope the dentist can fix it fast!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
