My fake tooth is disintegrating. It began while eating popcorn. POPCORN. This is why life confuses me. I don’t know how much longer it will last. All I know for certain is that I will need a root canal after. Horrible words, aren’t they? Root Canal. It hurts just to say it. The dentist who put the fake tooth in is a friend of my dad’s. Sometimes I wish I could punch his teeth in. That should restore the balance.
