Sometimes things reach such a level of absurdity that you just have to laugh...even when it's not funny. I finally reached that point today with my unlucky streak.
Yesterday I had to go grocery shopping, and I had a kitchen utensil that had worn out. So I ran to a specific department store to get a new one since I have a card there and I figured I wouldn't have to use any cash. When I got home and opened the box it literally fell apart in my hand. So after the periodontist visit I went to return it.
But let me back up a little. My visit wasn't as bad as it could have been. I received news that wasn't good, but it wasn't bad either. He said that part of gum graft had indeed come away but part of it was still there so he wanted me to just let it heal and then we would see what needs to be done. He is a very nice man, and he assured me three times I do not need to stress over this. (I guess I look really stressed.) I had told him about all my problems with the crown. He said don't worry about anything he would fix it when the time comes. So that is good, kinda. It still means I have to go partially through the process again. But he said he has to do it quite often because people catch the new gum tissue and pull it out all the time, and that it was quite lucky that I made it through the first four with no issues at all. I left feeling like maybe...just maybe my unlucky streak was finally over!
On the way home, I made my return to the store, I was on my way out when I noticed they had sterling silver charms that were regularly $35.00 on sale for $8.00. Right in my line of sight was a four leaf clover. I have never had a lucky charm before, but I figure at this point I need one!
I hadn't eaten anything and I decided to hit Burger King which was right there in the parking lot. I ordered a simple sandwich and a soda and headed for home. I am not a huge fan of fast food but I was too tired to cook since I had to get up early for the periodontist.
I got home and took a sip of the soda. I don't know what was wrong with it but it tasted AWFUL! Then I opened the sandwich and it was the wrong thing. Seriously what are the odds on that??? At that point I just started laughing. It's as if the whole thing has simply become this giant comedy of errors...even the smallest things just don't work out right now. It's so ridiculous.
I finished the sandwich anyway, then rushed downstairs to get a chain for my new charm. I am wearing it right now, and I am sincerely hoping it works because this Irish girl needs some good luck in the worst way!
On that note I am going to take a nap.
