I was out of town over the weekend, so of course…

I lost a crown (the dental kind). The tooth in question had been slightly pressure- and cold- sensitive recently, probably because the adhesive was deteriorating. Now every time I inhale abruptly, the flow of air over the little stub of tooth on which the crown once rested causes me a fair degree of discomfort.

Why does this (dental) stuff always happen (a) when I’m out of town and (b) on weekends? My last tooth issue was the temporary crown that came off during my field trip to New York this spring. Prior to that, I had a molar that was rotting out of my head when I was on a 4-day field trip to Door County in Wisconsin. WTF?

I wonder if maybe I ought to find a new dentist.
