50 year old tooth discovered in man's head

OK - what do you get when you match a 50+ year old tooth against a pistachio shell?

Let me tell you ..... you get a chipped molar. ........ So its Thursday night and I am chomping away on some CHILI HOT pistachios that I picked up in Santa Barbra while visiting my son and daughter in law. I bit down .... thought it was the shell and it ended up being that as well as a piece of molar. Gross .............. that's what you get when your mouth is fast approaching antique status.

So I hit the sack and wake up in the morning and feel like this guy ......................... thinking that if I look in the mirror my tongue is dripping blood.

So I do a quick trip to the dentist to have him grind down the knife edge of my tooth until I can get a crown to cover the whole mess up. I think I may go with the shiny 50 cent look this time.

Wish they would pass that FREE health care quick like ..... this is gonna cost me $1,200.

LOL! I hate it when that happens - makes me glad one of my oldest friends is also my dentist. As far as the free health care goes, don't hold your breath. If you're white, male, and born in this country, you're not going to get shit for free my friend. Sorry to have to break the news to you. My family isn't rich by any stretch and we got absolutely nothing from Jimmy Carter, or Bill Clinton. I have no reason to believe that's going to change now.

I have to go now. I'm busy stock-piling food and guns in my basement.

Call Obama, I'm sure he'll pick up the tab :)

Same thing happened to me eating a Greek Gyro in FLA a couple of years ago. Dan

That's what you get for having nuts in your mouth. LOL, Sorry, sorry.

Yeah, this is why I only eat doughnuts. I know I am going to have to hit the dentist here someday, but getting a loan right now to pay for it is almost impossible right now. It's a good thing that someone recently told those banks they had to start giving out money again!

I'm getting acid reflux just thinking about the hot chili pistachios! Does that mean I'm old too?
