"Tooth Found, Claim If Yours"

Friday, February 22, 2008

My boss went home from work because of the snow storm we're having at the moment which means I sit at the main desk instead of the nice hidden one in the office to the left of me. The school is technically closed so I could go home but it is the last day to make payments for an alternative spring break program that goes through here, so there are a lot of students stopping by. Anyway, I'm sitting at the main desk and I look down and there's a little whitish thing sitting on the desk. On closer inspection I realize it's a tooth! Um... what? How do you lose a tooth and not notice it's gone and sitting on the desk in front of you? And the even bigger question is, whose tooth is it!? Because I began gagging, I tried pushing it away under the computer so I don't have to see it but it flipped over and I saw that it was actually only half a tooth. It looks like the front half of someones tooth just fell off. The rotted back, by the way, is much more disgusting than the front. Just thinking about it makes me want to throw up. I don't even know what to do with it? Do I like attach it to a post-it with a sign saying "Tooth Found, Claim If Yours"? Or would a "Front half of tooth looking for soul mate back half of tooth to eat long picnics on the beach" sound better? Does anyone actually want it back? If they didn't, why would they leave it right in front of the computer?? I would throw it away but that would require digging it out from under the computer and also looking at it again... which I don't think I would survive.

Anyway, it's finally Friday! I have spent the last two weeks doing work almost non-stop. Taking six courses was a bad idea on my part but the worst of it is over (I hope). I would basically wake up at nine (even though I don't have class until 11:30) do work for a few hours, go to class and/or work, then go back to do homework until about 1 in the morning. Wednesday night I had a two hour exam for my LC seminar and now that it is over I just have my trip to look forward to! We leave Tuesday around 1:00. I think our flight is around 6:00, leaving from Logan. I'm not even sure what airline we are taking. We only saw our tickets for a minute so I guess it will be a surprise!

I really need to start packing. I have no idea what I need to actually bring or what I need to buy. I should have been on top of this weeks ago but I was just way too busy with school (or at least that's the excuse I'm going with). I need to also invest in some Airborne or EmergenC. If you haven't heard- the flu shots given out this year were not for the strain of flu that is actually going around. That doesn't really affect me however because I didn't have time to get a flu shot this year anyway. I'm just hoping that I don't get sick before my trip and even more so on my trip. I think the large quantities of green tea that I consume daily is the only thing keeping me health right now.

Well this post was a lot longer than I was expecting it to be and I'm hoping everyone decides to leave here early so I can sneak out too, but we'll see how that goes.
