It's a sad thing when the highlight of one's day is a trip to the dentist. Mainly because I was glad to get an appointment so fast.

The other thing that happened this weekend was a toothache. I didn't realize how bad it was until Sunday, when my fever was down enough to stop all of the ibuprofen that I had been on since Thursday. The dentist's office was closed yesterday for Columbus Day, so I called first thing this morning and got a 10:15 appointment. I was surprised to get in at all today, with their backlog of calls over the holiday weekend.

It's a problem with my bite again; the tooth with the crown doesn't wear evenly with the rest of them. (I had actually thought the problem was the tooth in front of that, but nope.) X-rays showed that the root canal in the same tooth is holding, so the dentist just ground down the surface of a couple of teeth until I could tap them together without pain. The worst part of the grinding is that it smells like something is burning. (It isn't.)

It'll take a few days to stop hurting when I chew, but it's already better. And my October budget took a bit of a hit, but nothing I can't handle.

Could have been a lot worse.

Dear Yuletide Author:

Thank you so much for writing a story for me! :D I hope at least some of the prompts and suggestions below are helpful to you, and that you have a generally excellent Yuletide this year. Hope this letter's not too tl;dr—is 7,000 words too much? enough?—optional details are always optional. I'm very excited for fic in the small fandom(s) of my heart. <3
