No "the whole tooth" jokes, please.

Well, brilliantly, I just chipped one of my front teeth. No idea how... it's just chipped. There's a tiny chunk missing from the front of it, and I have no idea what that's going to mean in terms of eating in the short term. no pain from brushing, so I don't think it goes through to the nerve, but I don't think I have any choice but to go to a dentist as soon as I can and get it fixed. It would be good to get back in the habit anyway... I'm sure my teeth are in pretty bad shape all around, and this was just a matter of time. I just have to hope it doesn't get any worse before I can have it fixed. The edges of the chip seem pretty sharp, and wearing down to a smoother surface may not be a better state. And I don't know what fixing something like this entails - a cap? A filling? A complete replacement of the tooth? Or maybe just some filler paste and a straw diet for a few days until it sets.

The rest of the day doesn't seem to matter that much in comparison. I don't think I slept at all last night, for no particular reason (although it might be because I forgot to turn the heat back on last night after failing to replace the filter), but I don't know whether I can care about much right now. I thought my depression had gone away way too easily last week, but I never would have seen this coming.
