Two Grants and a Crown

I think there is some cosmic karma out there, giving and taking. In the last month I got two grants awarded!! So, I guess my tenure case for next year is going to be pretty good. I was riding high on that success when my body decided to poop out again… This time, I was eating a friggin salad, my tooth cracked in half, and I swallowed it. Not kidding you. And when I tell people about this, they say, "Oh did you bite into a crouton?" No, dammit! I was eating a friggin salad with avocado. I cracked my tooth on avocado. So I think god was telling me not to get to uppity about getting two grants by having me ingest my own tooth. Fortunately, the dentist was able to do a crown and I was patched up in 24 hours. That was my first crown, and wow do I hope it is my last. It was nast.
