I spent the morning doing that very thing, my friend. I broke mine flossing. Floss. Known breaker of molars. It took six shots of anesthesia to get me numb enough to work on it. And you? Did they clobber your gums?

I broke mine on a piece of COOKED carrot. An $800 piece of carrot. I should just eat gold and be done with it. I only had two shots, so you're four up on me. I'm taking a nap. My gums don't hurt, but my neck is killing me.

Insanely delicious-smelling biscotti just came out of the oven, so I can nap in the aroma.

Cooked carrot. Is nothing sacred?

My neck is fine but my gums are bruised and pretty roughed up.

I have no biscotti to slumber into so I'm swigging Coke and melting Pringles in my mouth. I'd eat carrots but they're clearly dangerous.

I had no idea that crowns were so expensive. I thought I'd be out of there for $400 tops. $800. My God. That's a mortgage payment.

That's my mortgage and home equity payments together. But maybe crowns cost less in Georgia.

$1,200 total. Apparently they're less expensive in your part of the world.

Anyone know how you shop around for this kind of thing? I hate to think that there might be another good dentist nearby who would do the exact same thing for $400 less.

I spent $400 for a gold crown in Los Angeles in 1982 and $1400 in Seattle in 2007.. Wonder how much cost of malpractice insurance figures into that?

On the flip side, my dentist gave me nitrous on top of 3 Vicodens that resulted in one of the most intense trips of my life..

Ouch. Not my favorite topic.
