If you were given the following options, which would you choose?

A) Read a book
B) Clean
C) Research/paperwork/productive things
D) Go outside
E) Go to the dentist, find cavities, fix them, and pay $$$ for it

I'm pretty sure this isn't a tricky one, but I would choose A, B, C, and D several times before I chose E. But, alas, E has been my day thus far. Honestly, the actual procedure went very smoothly {even the shot went well!} other than being disappointed about the pre-cavities - of course.

BUT, the paying for it part is what sucked the most.  Since I constantly think about trade-offs and how I could have better spent the money, I could have bought:

a new point and shoot camera
almost two weeks worth of groceries
a few tanks-worth of gasoline
jeans, shoes, and jewelry
 well over 600 packs of Ramen noodles
one fancy date night at a nice restaurant

...see my point?
I suppose it is necessary and important and I really shouldn't complain.

I'm thankful I have a full set of teeth with which to eat, though.  =]
Speaking of: time for lunch!

i would choose read a book out of all of those, especially the dentist. I had 4 wisdom teeth removed 2 months ago, so I know your $$ pain.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Every time I go into the dentist for a regular visit I joke with him about knocking all my teeth out and getting dentures, he doesn't think it is nearly as funny as me.

going to the destist is always a pain in the ass...i hate going there, and the price to pay is always high! from the options up there, i would choose reading at the moment...i want to relax a little bit!
