Crazy Weather, Part Deux

Well, I woke up to a snow covered parking lot. I could not believe it! It snows all the time here, but it never really sticks. The temperatures in the Paris region are really mild and while it is cold enough to snow, it usually melts upon hitting the ground. Not last night, though. It was a real mess too, slushy and slick. Throughout the day, it continued to snow intermittently. The sun would come out and melt everything and then it would snow again. Strange, strange weather.

Speaking of strange, I had a very weird dream last night. It started with my upper right canine tooth coming out. Not the whole tooth, just the visible part. I put it back in its place in hopes that it would regenerate and went to my orthodontist. The receptionist told me my orthodontist couldn’t see me and I should come back in two weeks. I tried to explain to her that it was an emergency because I didn’t want to lose a tooth and to just ask him if he could squeeze me in. She went and spoke with him, came back and told me to fill out a credit application. I filled out the credit ap and left. I was very careful chewing for the rest of the day and tried to draw as little attention to my wobbly tooth as possible. At the end of the day, the receptionist called me and told me my orthodontist could fit me in and I should come in immediately. When I arrived, the receptionist winked at me, said, “I guess he had a chance to look at your credit ap,” and took me into my orthodontist’s office. He was super nice, gave me some tea and interviewed me before fixing my tooth.

I have no idea what this dream means. Am I about to lose a tooth or win the lottery? Am I worried about my credit or about my oral hygiene? And why my upper right canine? Who knows, but it was a right strange dream and it was one of those that lasts all night.

While we are still on the topic of strange, I found a type of chocolate I don’t like. It is 75% cocoa, extra bitter and it just tastes wrong, wrong the way flat soda just doesn’t taste like real soda. The flavor was still there, but something was definitely missing (yes, I know, sugar). I went ahead and ate the whole bar just to make sure I didn’t like it and I didn’t.

As you can probably tell, I had an extremely uneventful day. Hope yours was more exciting.

Glad you tested the whole chocolate bar. That's exactly what I would have dine! :)

I wanted to make sure I was completely informed!

I've had teeth falling out dreams before as well. I read that they can either mean that you are self-conscious of your image, or that you are worried about entering a new stage in your life. Option #3 is you're worried your teeth will fall out.
