Wisdom Teeth

I know I promised Carlo a post about the joys (none) and sorrows (plenty) of wisdom teeth removal based on my experience over the past week, but I'm going to postpone that until tomorrow. Tomorrow is my follow-up appointment with the oral surgeon to make sure everything is okay, so I don't want to write a post concluding "and everything is okay now," only to follow-up the next day with a post saying "my oral surgeon says something has gone horribly wrong and now he has to amputate my lower jaw."

Jebus that ain't funny! I'm already nervous enough as it is... It's ridiculous, I scheduled my surgery for May 10th and I've already missed out on a trip to TheBrummell's cottage AND a visit to the Toronto Zoo. I can't take any more bad news!!!

You can rest easy now. I just got back from the follow up appointment and all is well.

If you don't have complications or massive swelling, and if you like ice cream and jello, you'll be alright.

And yes, it is funny. ;-)

And I had to miss my employee appreciation breakfast. The company only appreciates us for one hour a year and I missed it. Let me repeat: I missed free food and an hour of time that's charged to overhead instead of being billable to a project. In cubicle land, it doesn't get any better than that, and I missed it.

While I was out and about I ran into a couple of the people who attended the service I played for on easter. They thanked me, and the one guy commented that their 'guest pastor' had been somewhat wanting. One of the men I was talking to had recently had kidney surgery, and his companion said, "Admit it, Bill, wouldn't you have rather have been layin' cut open on the table, cut open, no anesthetic, than listen to that doofus?" Bill said he would have found one about as painful as the other.

Yeah, employee appreciation...

I know a very fine young man who got out of the military, and actually got a job at one of the few places still working. In that time he wound up pretty much as de facto shift leader and the guy they called for anything. He finally wised up, and just did his job. He got in trouble. Oh, he did his job better than anyone else, but it was his 'attitude'.
He said, you have a shift leader who won't do his job, why should I do it plus mine and not get his pay? No answer. He said further, you page me to fix this, see about that, report to the loading dock with a gun because some trucker has flipped completely out and needs to be subdued. You never call me down to have a beer, eat a steak, offer me a hundred dollars, give me crazed weasel sex with a beautiful woman...not even for a cup of coffe. Yep, he wised up.
