The loud thud you just heard was the sound of my head hitting the desk. I got all of 2 hours and 15 minutes sleep last night thanks to a persistently evil pain that's developed where I'm getting my current root canal done. It kept me up until about 2:45 am and the only reason I fell asleep then was because I finally relented and took vicodin at 2:00. The same pain ended up waking me at 4:00. It hurt enough to where I was tempted to call in, take another pain killer and try to go back to the dentist today. But being as I've only called in sick once over the last 3 years, I just swallowed half a bottle of Advil and drank enough coffee to keep a small village wired for a month before dragging my ass in to work. Oof.
