I have a bridge on my bottom teeth to replace a tooth with a root so rotten that the Endodontist, honest man that he is, would no recommend a crown.
I should say that I had the bridge, because it has gone AWOL. Has the Gremlin been at work again?
BY WAY OF BACKGROUND (1) I am a restless sleeper. I sleep talk, I sleep laugh, I sleep walk.
BY WAY OF BACKGROUND (2) I usually put the bridge in a tumbler of water before retiring for the night. I sometimes forget to do this.
When that happens I sometimes find that I have removed the bridge in my sleep and tucked it under my pillow. I've also been known (again whilst sleeping) to throw the bridge across my bedroom.
Whatever I did last night (Thursday/Friday) the bridge has gone awol, I cannot find it. I have searched high and low - no it's not under the bed, nor did I put it in a drawer or in my freezer during the night (you'd be surprised at what I do whilst sleep walking!)
It's nowhere to be seen. Did I flush it down the toilet? Did it fall into the trap underneath my bathroom sink? (I'll check the trap tomorrow).
Will it present itself three months from where I least expected to see it? (This sometimes happens with lost articles).
Failing my search and rescue efforts I'll be off to my Dentist on Monday to be fitted for a new bridge. Think of it this way "Povey invests in new infrastructure"
Yours, baffled and amused, JMP
