Root Canal.

One of my co-workers got the axe yesterday while I was off at the dentist working on that tooth I coudln't (read: didn't) get finished in 2002. The combination of gas and too much novocaine left me nauseus and dizzy. I was still hearing the conversation between the dentist and his assistant. It seemed to be coming at me through a drain pipe the first time I heard it, and upon recollection of it, I was quite sure that was really how it came to me. I carefully worked my way through traffic, through the post-operative haze, and collapsed into brief and confused slumber without bothering to phone the office. When I arrived at work the next day, El's desk had been cleaned up, and I had inherited all the jobs he used to do.

I'm gonna miss the lug. Hope to god he finds a more lucrative position. The one we had him in didn't quite cut the compensation mustard.

Not very sexy, I know, but I'm probably not gonna say so much along those lines in this blog. I'd have to actually start screwing again for that...

That's the Mad Hatter in the pic, BTW.
