A bit of the future

It seemed futuristic to me. Maybe it’s old hat, but to me it was new and cool.

I was getting a crown on one of my wisdom teeth the other day (ugh, don’t think about it)—but, during the procedure, I got to wear a pair of goggles of some kind with a TV screen inside it!

Very cool.

I had a pick of several movies: I chose Life of Brian, which I’d seen many times before, like every geek. I figured it would be the equivalent of going to my happy place. (It was.)

“What Jesus clearly fails to appreciate is that it’s the meek who are the problem.”

“Centuwion, why do they tittew so?”

That was tooth #17. I have to go back for tooth #32. I’m thinking of bringing in my own copy of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
