Chipper

So, I made an appointment with the dentist, but I can't get in until Monday, so I have to be "chipper" for the weekend. Here's the gruesome reality of how this chipped tooth has mangled my appearance: Kidding, you probably can't even tell. It's the right tooth (which is on the left when you're facing the screen here). Jerry says it's barely noticeable, but to me, it's all I can look at in the mirror. However, I do think it gives me a certain "je ne sais qua" and combined with an uncanny ability to distort my face, I think I'm pretty intimidating right now. Rawr!

Anyhoo...decided not to run today. The quads are on the mend, but I want to be conservative with the running for the next few days and give it another go on either Sunday or Monday, so Jerry and I went for a family walk this afternoon with Scooter. We walked 3 miles in the scorching afternoon sun, and we all got pretty hot. Scooter wanted to lay down after the first mile, and we even had to allow him to paddle around in a canal for a bit (while we were vigilant for gators) because he was so hot we thought he might burst into flames. He was refreshed from his little swim and did fine on the rest of the walk.

Note to ourselves: In the future, just like running, walking is hot in the Floridian afternoon sun. Phew!

Can't tell the difference from here. But your expression is pure hilarity.

Glad Scoots made it through the death march.

LMAO That is the EXACT same look that Mr McG had also. You really can't tell unless you point it out. Don't worry chica, you're still in all your hotness ;-)

I cant even tell you have a problem with your tooth....now your face...just kidding. Good to hear you are keeping things sane when it comes to recovering those quads.

I dont think I necessarily miss that south florida sweltering heat.

That's not so bad at all. I have the same thing and it hasn't bothered me a day in my life.

I think it's a mark of distinction. Wear it with pride, baby.

Apparently last week was "Chip a tooth week". Two of my friends chipped teeth last week. On carrots. CARROTS. Wtf?
