Tom went to the dentist today because he's apparently got some ligament damage from when he got smacked in the face with a softball about 6 weeks ago. The dentist gave him some new rules to follow, mainly regarding the need to eat soft foods for the next couple of weeks. He swore to me she didn't say anything about talking less. He made the same claim to his mom.
As he was wrapping things up at the receptionists desk, the guy who did Tom's Xrays must have overheard his (alleged) age. Tom says the guy said, "You don't look 40." (He's not, he'll be 42 in a few months.) "I would have guessed early 30's."
I would just like to make it clear (again) that I just turned 39. For the first time. More than one person has alluded to my being "39 again." One of them actually said, "You're joking! I thought you were 40."
