That's his favorite spot now. He can spend hours out there with his nostrils fluttering as he reads the smells on the wind. I wonder what it's like to "see" the world through odor as he does. Despite his drop dead cute factor, his farts are still the most violent slap-in-your-face assaults you can imagine. It causes us to shriek, "Georgie, NOooooooo!" every time. I thought maybe they'd mellow, but they're still as heinous as ever. Good thing he's adorable, eh?
Speaking of heinousness, I went to the dentist to have five silver fillings gouged out and replaced with the newfangled composite stuff. Obviously I was not looking forward to the experience. When I first got there, they had to numb half my face. The nice cute dentist said, "I'm sorry about this but if we want to stay friends..." Then they put a "dam" in my mouth which is hard to explain but basically kept my mouth stretched open for the next two hours. The assistant put her ipod on the docking station and had a mix straight out of Alley McBeal going on as they went to work gouging out the old silver fillings. The dentist sang while he worked and it was like I was in an episode of Nip Tuck. The drilling and grinding went on and on and on. At the end, I was dubbed a "good patient" I guess since there was no whining on my part. The result is satisfying, no more silver on the bottom teeth and the little sensitive spot no longer is. Unfortunately, this little two hour episode set me back almost $800. That's a week in Cuba folks for two hours in the dentist's chair. I really am in the wrong business.
Right after that, I had to go teach a class. The (I want to say novacaine, but surely it's something different now) anasthetic hadn't worn off though so I couldn't speak properly and I couldn't even feel when drool came out of my mouth since the whole bottom of my face was numb. The students had a good laugh anyway.
Do any of y'all use bloglines as your blog reader? I do, but they were down for two days this week. I felt cut off from my peeps. They are back up now, so I'll try to catch up this weekend. Today we're having a reunion with all the Cuba friends we made back in December. That should be fun. I don't know about the rest of the weekend, but I suspect a good amount of sloth shall be had. I hope you enjoy your weekend too!
