Nascar Here I Come

April 16, 2009

You know those weeks where everything just seems to be going to ____ in a hand basket?  Well, I guess I was about due for one.  First, the speeding ticket that you already know about; then, in a bizarre twist of fate I knocked off half of my tooth on Tuesday night.  Being that I don’t play football, hockey or usually engage in any sort of activity that is even slightly dangerous (other than nagging Chad about the trash) I am sure you are wondering, “How on earth did she do that?”

Here are the ingredients, a recipe for disaster if you will:

·         One anticipated evening with “famous” republicans and beloved family members

·         A newly purchased perfect little black dress

·         An Aunt who couldn’t get her stubborn zipper up

·         A pair of pliers

·         An immense amount of force

And BOOM before you know it you have knocked off half of your tooth!  Don’t try this at home folks, really, I don’t recommend it.

So here is the breakdown:

·         Little black dress: $150

·         Trip to the dentist: $300

·         Speeding Ticket: $195

Being reminded that you are in control of absolutely NOTHING: Priceless.  But I did get this handy little lip balm from the dentist, well worth the $300 (or not):



Oh, and nitrous gas – which was FABULOUS, I HIGHly recommend it.  And I met the nicest dentist, Dr. Efseroff of Frisco Family Dental, who can be reached at 972.335.0313 – in case you need any work done or if you too have a chipped tooth emergency.

I am just glad they were able to rebuild my tooth and that Chad can take me to Nascar now without having to worry about all the Rednecks swarming me.


This is the tooth, or the piece of the tooth.


These are the pliers and the zipper pull.


And the scene of the accident where the fatality occurred…ok, so maybe it was only fatal for a tiny piece of my tooth but still the yellow caution tape remains around my guest bedroom.

P.S. Chad thought it was really cute to leave me a dollar where my tooth was – my little tooth fairy.  Ha.  Ha.

P.P.S. I can’t believe I have not blogged on The Hills or The Real Housewives….don’t worry, I will, I just needed to vent about my tooth and annoying extra expenses.

    Kate – true beauty comes from the inside. Tooth or no-tooth, you are still beautiful! I am so sorry you had to experience this Katasrtophy. Maybe its time to change your Blog name to -People Are Always Sending Me Money & Other Important News. Really glad the tooth got all fixed up!

    Love, Uncle Tom
