Forgive me, but I'm a little slow
Have you all seen this cute little symbol? I think the first time I saw it was when my friend Fairmaiden left a comment on one of my posts months and months ago. "Is it a new Christian symbol that I don't know about? What does it mean?" Then it started popping up everywhere and every time I would look at it with wonder, but still couldn't figure it out...until today.
I was merrily skipping down a blog trail when it appeared in the title of a Valentine's post. "What does THAT have to do with Valentine's Day?" I thought to myself. And then I turned my head ever so slightly to the right and it was like a tiny dim light bulb went on in my cluttered brain. It's a Heart...duh! Did I feel dumb! I know I should have asked my friend Fiffer Lou months ago because she knows everything (and includes it in her emails to me), but then I guess I didn't want to show my age or my ignorance.
So just in case there are any of you out there scratching your head over this... IT'S A HEART!
On to other things. I spent 3 lovely hours in the dentist's chair before going to work this morning and my jaw is so tired. Have you ever had a dental dam wedged around your mouth? Once it's in it doesn't come out and it's not a pretty picture. So there I sat for 3 hours with my mouth wide open which is not an easy thing for me to do. You see, I have a severe case of TMJ. At least it's severe to me. Now I'm on anti-biotics and taking 600 miligrams of motrin every six hours. So far I've had very little pain but who knows what I'll wake up to tomorrow.
Is there a moral to this story? Not really, but if you'd like one I can certainly think one up.
Oh, and don't forget to floss your teeth <3. Hey, there's that little symbol again. Cute isn't it?
