Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Friday May 22, 2015. The temperature is 59.4F and the humidity is 51% at 5:05 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 1.6 with gusts of 2.2 mph. It was cloudy when I stuck my head with patches of blue but no stars. Weather Underground is predicting a 40% chance of precipitation and a high of 68° today.
The crown yesterday turned out to be a root canal. The pain and discomfort was, for all I’ve heard about root canal, rather minimal. The dentist wrote me a script for Motrin. Throwing a monkey wrench into the works is that I was running a low grade temperature. I didn’t feel anything else except sleepy. What was really painful was the $400 added to the bill. Right now, the jaw feels a little tender, but I’m not in pain. I probably won’t be eating taffy or popcorn for a while, thought.
Without going into details, there is a drama brewing among some of Mr. Siduri’s friends. It grew out of a legitimate complaint one had with another, but what galls me is that the girlfriend of the wronged party is using the occasion to stir up trouble. And she will continue to do so. If permitted, she goes on 10-minute little mini rants on the evils of the other person involved. And these are the people we’re having over on Sunday. If girlfriend can just keep from spreading her poison—but I know she can’t. I asked Mr. Siduri if we can just cancel the barbecue. I don’t want to deal with the drama. I don’t want to hear the poison, how evil J is, how her boyfriend now lives in fear of him (…no) or of the destruction of his property (…no).
There’s a bird chirping someplace in the dark, echoing in the chimney. He must be on the chimney. It just reminds me that while I’m safe and warm inside, there’s a whole world outside, not so far removed.
Still not feeling 100%. Take it easy today.
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
