#3294 – mouthguards

i’ve got a dentist appointment tomorrow for the first time in, oh, about a year. he’s a nice guy and i don’t mind going to the dentist, but i’m a-skurred because i don’t know what he’s going to say – not only has it been forever since i’ve last been to the dentist, but i’m supposed to wear this mouthguard when i sleep because i (apparently) grind my teeth in my sleep, and that leads to the joints of my jaw making popping and grinding noises when i open and close it.

the nice thing about having a bit of booze before bedtime is i can get such a little amount of sleep and still wake up rather refreshed – i fell asleep sometime between 2 and 3, and woke up just before 9 am. i’m feeling a little more tired now, but at any rate it’d take some effort to fall back asleep.

my digital camera is out for delivery right now, so each time i hear a vehicle drive down my street i sit up and run to the window to see if it’s the ups truck. someone needs to stop closing car doors outside, because that drives me nuts too.
