The Night Is Young

Kathryn: The night is indeed young. I, however, am not. Further, it has

been a bad evening: dental crisis — Daniel Oliver cracked a tooth when

trying to eat a popcorn kernel (? don’t ask, I have no idea) & had to be

hauled off to the dentist for a look, then, on the dentist’s recommendation,

to the oral surgeon for an extraction. Fortunately it was a milk tooth, not

an adult tooth. Anyway, he was a brave soldier, so the tooth fairy will

come with a $2 reward. Since the darned extraction cost me $315, this makes

no economic sense at all — but then, practically nothing does, I am slowly

concluding. And so goodnight.
