My dog sits at my feet watching snow fall. I sit here pondering the third day of my migraine, and a toothache from a lost filling that is also throbbing. Short of taking pliers and pulling the tooth myself (an alternative that grows more attractive with each bit of pulsating agony), a nap would be blissful.
Yes, I should be at work. But here in the midsouth we are having a snowfall of between 2 and 5 inches, and that should be sufficient to give everyone a day off. Schools are closed. And I am lucky enough to work for a small company that realizes I work nights and weekends as well as regular office hours, so they are pretty understanding that the migraine that I worked through yesterday is now owning me with the toothache from Hell as well.
I am also smothering an impulse to throw away all the solid food in my house, as basically anything with a nut or other chewy texture is enough to put me into paralysis of toothache agony. Soup is getting dull, folks.
So, here's my question to the populace: Where and how is the cheapest way to get a tooth pulled? The closest dental school has a 6 month waiting list. I have no dental insurance or any medical insurance either. Any and all ideas appreciated!
