A Chip Off the Old Block

Bloggie friends!! I am falling apart
I chipped my tooth eating a pecan tart!
I wouldn’t mind but it’s the front molar!
My dazzling smile is now no longer!

And this means *gulp* *shiver* *lose all colour from face* a, ahem, trip to the dentist.

Charlie says: Kindly fill blank page with words, thank you.


Have a twinkly Tuesday everyone!

Ouch! poor you :(

My sympathies. Just pretend that you are going to a wonderful health spa and you are going to have a new type of massage. What could be scary about that?

Is it working yet?!!

Tracy said...

This is terrible. I stick to chocolate...it's safer. At least it's never bitten me back!

Maria McKenzie said...

So sorry you have to go to the dentist. How awful to break your tooth while eating something delicious:(!

Stephen Tremp said...

A trip to the dentist is not bad. I like going there. Weird, I know. I once had a dentist with the worst breath. Eye watering breath. I thought he was just having a bad breath day. Next time, same thing. He just yakked and yakked. I didn't need any gas to put me out. His breath did the job. true story. Needless to say I found a new dentist.

Nooooooooooooooooo! We hope all goes well at the .... you know.

This happened to me while eating sunflower seeds!!!

Fortunately it was a back molar.

I'm terribly sorry! From now on, I'll send you my sunflower seeds and you send me your pecan-anythings!

Ann Best said...

Your verse definitely says it! And SO well, too.

But SO sorry about your tooth. I've chipped a few in my life--only a few, I have very strong teeth--and now I am very careful not to bite into anything hard! But this was only a pecan?? But now that trip to the dentist... Hope all goes well and you'll have another spiffy verse for THAT experience.

Theresa Milstein said...

Poor you! Those sad faces say it all.

I hope the dentist isn't as bad as you fear.

Charlie is a relentless muse, yet he doesn't seem to lose any sleep.

Dangerous With a Pen said...

Oog, this happened to me not long ago! I don't know how I even did it, but I chipped off a giant chunk of a molar. I had to wait all weekend to go to the dentist Monday morning, and I was all nervous, but it was actually very simple, just like a regular filling! Hope yours is relatively quick and painless like mine!

klahanie said...

Your 'dazzling smile' will soon be fixed. Wouldn't want you to have 'A Chip Off the Old 'Blog' :-)
You may have gathered by my comment that I lost my 'wisdom teeth' lol

Guinevere said...

Aw, I'm sorry, that sucks! Hope your trip to the dentist isn't too bad.

Love today's Charlie pic and quote. Too funny. :)

Summer said...

Gosh! Musta been a helluva pecan! Sorry to hear that, though, and hopefully your dentist trip won't be too bad.

Amparo Ortiz said...

OMG, that's awful!! Sending all the best your way!!

Don't worry about your dazzling smile. I'm sure your personality will still do the trick :D

Get better soon!!

Bossy Betty said...

Oh Charlie! Take care of our Kitty!

Clarissa Draper said...

Oh, that's horrible. What can they do about it? Can they replace the tooth? Well, I hope everything turns out.

The Chair Speaks said...

All the best on the dentist's chair.
Though my dentist is a long time friend, I am still terrified when I am on that chair.

Jenny said...

I hope everything goes well at the dentist. I have a appt in 2 weeks to fill a cavity, not fun.

joanne fox said...

Oh no! It's so much worse when it's a front one isn't it. Hope your dentist can fix it soon.

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh noes! I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope the dentist is kind and gentle to you.

Kea said...

Aacckkk! I've broken teeth, needed them bonded, have had root canal and more recently a crown. Ugh, ugh, ugh. Nothing good about going to the dentist. So sorry! I hope it's fixed quickly with no pain!

Al said...

eek! dentists scare me.
Poor you :-(

Susan Fields said...

Oh no! Good luck at the dentist. Maybe Charlie will fill that blank page for you while you're gone. :)

Brigid said...

Ouch, you poor thing, sending you luck for the dentist.

penandpaints said...

Aw
I understand completely, having chipped front molar also, whilst eating rice, of all things! Crazy. 'Twas a while ago now and I'm over it, though my smile isn't quite as wide as it was:/
I' sure your dentist will look after you, don't fret!

Cherry said...

owie! the dentist isnt that bad, you get stickers :P

Joanna St. James said...

ack! even I am shaking in my chair for you. Ask if they can knock you out, that is what I do now.
Good Luck

Hannah and Lucy said...

Oops - a visit to the dentist - just what you need to get in the spirit of Chrismas with. Hope he (she)is gentle with you and you're not left numb and slobbery.

Manzanita said...

Jennifer,
You're supposed to take the shells off the pecans!!!!!

So sorry. I don't mind dentists but it's all just a time consumer and a pain in the patooty. Well, maybe a pain in the tooth. Good luck, bloggy friend!!

notesfromnadir said...

I hope that it's easily fixed. I wonder if maybe there was a chunk of the pecan shell hiding in there? Did you save it?

At any rate I hope you're back to your cheerful self & that Charlie is extra comforting to you.

Sammy and Andy said...

Oh, no!!!!!!!!!! Not the dentist, Old Kitty!!!!!!!!!

Yup, dear Charlie, keep her mind on filling that blank page so she doesn't stress out about going to the dentist.

We love ya both lotz and lotz.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

Ouch! Hopefully your dentist can make it as good as new painlessly.

Caren Gittleman said...

wow!!! On pecan pie? There must have been a shell in it!

Ok WHO made the pie????

Hope all goes well at the dentist!

xoxo

Brian said...

Ouchy! I hope you manage to get it fixed without too much stress!

Talli Roland said...

Oh NO! At least you chipped it on something yummy. Good luck with the dentist - I share your shivers!

Jackee said...

Hate dentist trips. :o( So sorry! I hope they fix it without too much of an event.

Maybe Charlie could start doing the writing? lol!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Bummer!!!!!

The Golden Eagle said...

I'm sorry your chipped a tooth! And having to go to the dentist--ack!

Marg said...

Gosh, you poor thing. That sounds painful. I hate the dentist too so hope it went well. Charley, your Mom needs some extra hugs right now. But don't make her smile.
Take care both of you and hope things get better for you.

Words A Day said...

Oh thats terrible...get the dentist over with asap! Be brave! And don't forget to bill the pecan tart company!

Ellie said...

Oh, no. Poor you! You have my sympathies, I hate the dentist. Please avoid the pecan tart in future.

LTM said...

oh! ouch--so sorry to hear about your poor tooth.

You need to get George & Martha to read to Charlie. My daughter decided she wanted a gold tooth after we read it! :D

Remember, the rule now is "pain free dentistry." Best of luck~ :o)

Deborah said...

OH MY! That stinks,,,I think they will just patch it up. That is what my dentist would do, unless you need the dreaded... root canal,,,,
Let us know how it goes. You should get an IPAD for your train rides..then you won't need a pen!
Good luck my friend!
xxoo

hampshireflyer said...

Ouch! Not good.

At least Charlie looks in good nick though! :)

wncmountainliving said...

Hope it fixes up easy! Hate when that happens.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh no that is awful that you chipped a tooth! I hope you have a nice dentist at least (I had a great dentist but he retired a few years ago and I haven't seen one since). Or oh, a cute dentist would be good.

Charlie, this time we think you should give her a breat about the blank page - tooth things can hurt a lot!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

You poor, poor thing! How awful for you. I hope you can get it fixed right away. Be strong, Madam! You can do this! Your trip to the dentist will be over before you know it!

Melissa Gill said...

Yowza, I hate the dentist, and having a chipped tooth is the worst. I broke one of mine in half when I was twelve.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

OUCHIE! I've had this happen to me so many times ...and sadly I have a mouthfull of expensive crowns.
