Bye-Bye Boo-Boo!

About 36 hours of wax is all it took to reduce my tongue boo-boo to a minor ouchy. Amazing. I still have the wax on, though, because I don't want the boo-boo to flare back up.

I also have a red spot on the roof of my mouth. I can't remember what the heck I was doing, but while I was driving to work this morning, I glimpsed the roof of my mouth in the rear-view mirror and saw an alarming red spot. Honestly, what could I have been doing?  Admiring my teeth?  (Four years of braces!) Yawning? (I got very little sleep.) Laughing at something on the radio?  (I hope I don't guffaw like a hyena.)

I am enjoying using words like "boo-boo" and flinging hyphens about at will, because for the last few days I have been incorporating edits into my documents here at work, and my editor is making me delete hyphens and commas and other punctuation that I am rather attached to.

The pain in my back and right leg kept me awake most of the night, even with all the nerve-pain blocking drugs that I am on. That was a real bummer. I wonder why I feel so chipper. I ought to be dragging.  Perhaps later I will just deflate and crumple.

Jeff, I thought about calling you in the middle of the night to chat, but since you just got a new job, I figured you needed your sleep.
