My latest root canal

Two days ago (Tuesday, March 31) I had my eighth (8!) root canal (the first was in nineteen ninety-eight (1998!).

One more and nine (9!) — fully one-third (1/3!) of my twenty-seven (27!) remaining teeth — will have been been gutta-percha-d (is that a word?) by the world's best endodontist, Dr. Robert E. Grover.

Call me twisted but I absolutely love lying there with with my eyes closed for a couple hours while he does God knows what inside my mouth: a sense of supreme competence is palpable.
