How Was Your Weekend?

I’m sorry to say that apart from going grocery shopping, I was just as lazy as last weekend.

    We saw the Incredibles 2 on Father’s Day. It a good movie about being a parent, and the kids freaking loved it.

    I had no real plans going in, but ended up having the most action-packed weekend in years. (Maybe 2 years?) I saw a play (Coriolanus — there’s a Shakespeare I knew nothing about at all), went to an art show (the theme of the art was “cats”), had a most excellent pork loin sandwich and stout at Mikeller Bar, ate a great deal of burratta, watched World Cup and multiple episodes of Anthony Bourdain, read half a book, and got plenty of sleep. Forsooth, this weekend was one for the ages.

    I was also very lazy! Unless you count binging Goliath as an accomplishment, the only thing I did this weekend was my laundry. Brunch got canceled because my friends’ baby had a fever so I barely left the house.

    On Friday I came home to find a package on my doorstep. Since I hadn’t ordered anything, I had no idea what it could be. I won’t drag out the suspense: It was a pair of sunglasses. Around 6 months ago, I bought some cheap sunglasses on Amazon and left a 3-star review that basically said, they’re flimsy but fine for the price. Since then, the seller has sent me countless emails. They offered me a refund, and when I didn’t answer, they just processed the refund. Then they offered me any of their sunglasses for free, and I ignored that, so they just sent these to me with a long letter about how they’re sorry I didn’t like their sunglasses. I don’t think they’re going to leave me alone until I change my review. I normally dig in my heels at this sort of pressure, but these people are really insistent and know where I live. Should I just delete my review?

      Can you bump your review to 5 stars but edit it to say “I’m giving them 5 stars for customer service, even though the sunglasses themselves are only 3 stars”? Then both sides (a super-aggressive sunglassesmonger, and Truth) both get something.

    I was actually kind of productive on Saturday. I went to a car show on Sunday that is held at a sort of fancy outdoor mall. I got a Donna Karan shirt for $35, and I think that is a pretty good deal? I really don’t know anything about her or her designs, but the shirt I bought is nice!

    You guys, I have NEVER had a cavity, but I went to the dentist today, and now I have 3! 😦

    • If it makes you feel any better, I’ve had 3 cavities as an adult too! My tooth enamel is crap because I had to take so many antibiotics for ear infections when I was little.

      • welcometocostcoiloveyou says:

        I didn’t know antibiotics could effect tooth enamel!

        I avoided the dentist for a really long time because of my OCD – probably 7-10 years – so, I’ve probably had the cavities for a while.

        The hygienist is awesome! She is super compassionate and understanding about my OCD, so she walks me through every step, assuring me along the way. She’s the main reason I have been able to move forward with cleanings and x rays.

          I’ve been two to different dental offices in the past year and my experience is that everyone is exceedingly nice. I think there must be an emphasis on bedside manner in dental school, like they know people are afraid of the dentist so they are really understanding about it. Two of my coworkers are so terrified to go that they can’t even handle me mentioning my dentist visits. I would encourage everyone to give it a shot, no pun intended. (I had three local anesthetic shots last week that contained epinephrine and I felt invincible for like two hours.)

      Team Cavity! I’m having two filled next week! Teeth are very expensive to maintain!

      • welcometocostcoiloveyou says:

        Yeah, I have dental insurance, but I have no idea how much it’s going to cover for fillings. And they said I might have to do the fillings over 2 appointments. I hope they can do it all in one. I would like to just get it over with.

        And I got a prescription toothpaste. I didn’t even know that is a thing that existed.
