Like a Bridge Over Nubs of Teeth...

I had a good day…in some ways excellent, but that is not important here. I enjoyed my time with my professor. One of my friends does not like him, but I think my friend just does not know how to handle him. Today, I asked about his family and learned A LOT about him. It explains why he fell asleep on a few occasions while I was attempting to discuss Cold War books with him. He is a really nice guy and he has a great sense of humor. I believe he really cares whether his students are getting the most out of their educations.

I got my Bridge in…which, for those of you who do not know, is where they take a tooth out from between two other teeth, and the two other teeth have had their nerves REEMED out. They grind the other two teeth down to nubs. Then they make a new large tooth (out of whatever they have lying around, I think they used parts of a Cue Ball for mine) and then glue (cement, or in my case I think they used sheet metal bondo [you know, for car bodies]) them to the nubs of your dead teeth. It sounds more complicated than it is. And it is more expensive than it should be. Still, it seems to have worked, despite the obscene pain of sticking the damned thing into my gums…that hurt A LOT.

I came home and I made Satay Chicken, while Cora Instant Messaged her friend in AZ…Kim, you should tell her she needs to help me make dinner! Satay Chicken is chicken grilled in strips, then you dip the strips in a peanut butter/soy sauce/cilantro sauce that is just yummy. You need to like peanut butter, though, since the taste can be somewhat strong…I am a big fan.

Can I just give KUDOS to Kylee for knowing what she is talking about in her comments?! She was right. Look at China, now going strongly toward a market society, far removed from the socialist climate envisioned by Marx.
