How Prescribed Medication and a Couple of Beers Work

This is what remains of my wisdom teeth. My father-in-law, Al, a good guy, a dentist, removed these chunks 2 or 3 years ago. Today, I bit down and hit a rock of something and split my tooth (a molar). Al is giving me a Sunday morning root canal and a tooth capping. He is very generous. I can't afford dental care, but I'm grateful for my extended and immediate family. Ye who hath shattered teeth, Ye with hopes: notice all of us others with hopes! Notice how important family is.
