Tooth-Level Micromanagement

Posted on September 19, 2017 at 4:30pm 2 Comments

You know how some religions try to micromanage your life - like press your head to the ground 45 times a day and eat this not that. You thought a secular lifestyle would liberate you?

The world turns on us sometimes and we seem to disappear as things out of our control take us off on different tangents. I won't elaborate but once we reach senior years, it seems everything in our lives is bad news....Thanks for the wave Ruth.
