He's still that sweet man, yes.
Another 3 years or so and I'll need to look for a new dentist for whom I can pay his/her Christmas bonus with thanks to my crap quality teeth.
My brother-in-law went to the dentist after me and so, my sister was already aware of the news. She came to pay me a short visit with a huge grin on her face (schadenfreude
). When she saw my
face and heard my reaction: "I had other plans for that money", she said: "well, look at it this way: be glad that you can afford these things"
True, but still...it's a small fortune, dammit.
