Hi, I fail at having a root canal.

Did I tell you about how my biggest concern about this was that I have a small mouth and this is a molar we're dealing with?  I now have a prescription for Ativan (one of whose many effects is muscle relaxant) and an appointment for Wed. Feb. 7 (at 8am! -- I look forward to falling asleep during the procedure).

[[ Edit 8:33pm, the endodontist called me to see how I was doing -- 'cause attempts were made at anaesthetizing me, so feasibly I would be sore from the injections when they wore off. There was/is some soreness, but nothing out of the ordinary. /edit ]]

I could have gone back to work (just as I could have gone in for an hour and a half in the morning, since my appointment was at noon), but I almost never take any time off and had prepared to not be in today, so I did not feel guilty about not going back to work and instead doing errands.

Including getting copies of the housekey made.  I now have one normal copy for guests (so I don't have to remember to coordinate with OriginalRoomie) and an "extra flamey" one 'cause it was only four dollars and I am hella easy sometimes.  I still have no keychain, so it is no less loseable, but is eminently findable/reclaimable.

P.S. In my bus ride, I learned that Arlington has huge churches (Calvary Church United Methodist, First Parish Unitarian Universalist, and something that might be a First Baptist).

It seems unfair to include punctuation marks in a "word origin" day calendar (I also dislike, cf. yesterday's, when they said, "The origin of this word [...] is elusive. It probably derives from [...]."), but I do like today's:
The question mark was first used, in its present form, in 16th-century England. It is a simplification in which an uppercase Q stood atop a lowercase o, representing the Latin word quaestio, "I search for."
