More dental adventures

Oh, the saga continues.

I had a temporary crown put on Monday, as it takes 10 days or so for the permanent one to be made. My dentist warned me to chew on the other side, which I'd been doing anyway since the root canal. Yesterday I was at an "event" where they served popcorn. I couldn't resist. But have you ever tried chewing popcorn on only one side of your mouth? I think this may be impossible according to the laws of physics. Still, everything was fine until I ate . . . a cookie. Suddenly, there was something in my mouth besides a cookie. I spit into my hand . . . and found half of my temporary crown.

I can only imagine what must have happened to the other half!
