you know those dreams where your teeth start falling out? or is that just me?
yesterday i was eating lunch (brown rice stir fried with carrots, onions, garlic, tamari, and sriracha) when a big chunk of one of my back molars just...fell...out of my mouth. i was left with what my tongue (prone to exaggeration) interprets as a gaping crevasse with very sharp edges, and a disinclination to bite down on anything (although it doesn't hurt at all, thankfully). yes, i will go to the dentist, as soon as i can, but in the meantime i'm using boo's braces wax back there and chewing on the left side of my mouth.
for some reason, my crumbling teeth put me in mind of delicious drinkable things, like kefir. i've been wanting to try this new coconut milk kefir, so i bought me some in strawberry flavor. it's good, but i wish it were more sour - maybe i'll try plain next time. my stomach is very happy with it. so is my mouth.
