Go get some Percocet for over the weekend. Mine more or less went away after 4 days though. Apparently my tooth is broken but it doesn't really bother me now and it's been a couple months. Never even knew I broke it until Doc told me so. I wash with salt water every morning too, saltwater is freaking magic.

Or take Cali's advice and go get some crack... Maybe heroine or meth if the crack isn't readily available

Re: Things I Hate


I hate it when I get a bad case of the chits right when I'm meeting a homeowner to go over a project

McDonalds is the bane of humanity but their fries to me are like crank to an addict, I know nothing good is going to come out but I'll be damned if I don't enjoy the moment

I don't touch schedule 2 pain killers. I have Tylenol 3 which takes the edge off enough until the antibiotics start working. But it's going to be an unpleasant night for sure.

Wrapping presents. I can make something look incredible wrapped in metal in 15 mins. Be a lifetime type deal.

Wrapping something in wrapping paper takes me 25 mins. fragile crap that will last 30 seconds once in the hand of the receiver.

Having your alternator quit. While at a job site 60 miles from home. Closest garage is 40 miles away. On the Friday afternoon before Xmas. And having the Tow Truck die en route to the repair shop... Can't make this up.

Makes our busted water line that made it rain in the kitchen at 3:45 seem not quite as bad...

Got it taken care of today. It was an abscess. No amount of pain meds or treatments would have relived the pain until the pressure was relieved.
