Crunch!

17 Sep

I love the crunch of a good apple. It is one of the many reasons why Fall is my favorite season.

I was sitting at my desk yesterday, enjoying a crispy autumnal delight when I heard a CRUNCH. It was not a moment when I should have heard such a sound. Was something in the apple, I wondered illogically as I spat out the piece of apple. As I looked for foreign objects, my tongue wandered to the area from which the crunch had emanated. There were sharp edges and a space where tooth enamel used to be. A piece of my tooth had broken away.

Sunday night, despite this only being the third week of school, I had wished for one more day off. Slightly giddy with the realization that this was about to come true, I looked up my dentists phone number to make an appointment.

“I’m not experiencing any pain,” I told the receptionist. “I can do any day this week, but would prefer it not be on Wednesday, we have Back to School Night.”

Of course I got a Wednesday appointment. BTSN might be interesting this year!

    A sound no one likes to hear when they are eating. This happened to me once when I was in a restaurant eating a burger. Glad there was no pain involved for you.
