Kid’s birthday – 7 years of age. Marvelous. Can’t be there for the morning festivities – have work, as befits grown-ups. But will leave from work earlier than usual.
Not much pain left, here some 24 hours beyond having that tooth yanked out of its socket. Heeded Alan Alda’s advice, and paid attention to details in my surroundings in order to alleviate the pain. Took one painkiller pill in order to sleep well, and promptly did so. Good stuff.
