I'm so glad you have an alternative TSQ
! I was afraid for a second when I read you first sentence!
I had to come home from work early. I had to have an unscheduled dental appointment this morning on a tooth that had a break in a previous repair. Unexpected filling, rebuild of broken area, and threat of a future root canal later...and I still went to work. Silly, silly me.
edit to add that now I really, really hurt. Whimper.
