The GPS decided to give me a tour of the seedier parts of the Portland area on the way back. So now I know where to find a bunch of strip clubs. If I wanted to do that.
The problem yesterday was after the tooth is pulled you're supposed to put ice on it. My room didn't have a refrigerator in it so I had to get ice from the ice machine and put it into a Ziploc bag. It was messier and didn't work as well, but I suppose it got the job done.
Today I moved like 2 miles south to the Extended Stay to spend a week recovering. Since I couldn't check in until 3 I hung out at a grocery store Starbucks for a couple of hours. I got lunch at the grocery store too, some Gorgonzola tomato bisque soup from the deli and an individual cup of chocolate Hagen-Daaz. The lunch of champions! Since I was at the grocery store I got some supplies for the next few days. I had some sweet basil tomato bisque soup that was good. Maybe it's just me, but it seemed from sitting around the grocery store a lot of people wear backpacks around here. What's up with that?
Basically the gum is tender, but not so bloody as it was yesterday. The maddening part is staying on the soft diet, which is hard watching ESPN and seeing commercials for Wendy's and McDonald's and all that. I'll probably start dreaming about solid food.
Here's your picture for the day, the stunning view from my motel window...of the staircase. Really I should get a discount for the obstructed view.
