Reality Distortion, and Dental Hygiene.

I feel touched by the spirit of a sane Britney Spears today.  Oops!  I did it again.  You know how I say weird shit just happens to and around me?  Well, let me tell you about *my* day.

Since I moved in Feb, I still am feeling out some of the resources in my new area of town.  I know plenty about the shopping and dining, but not much about what services there are.  I was looking for a new chiropractor since I feel a bit like the Elephant Man.  Crowdsourcing seemed like a good idea, so I asked my friends if they knew of anyone worthwhile in my new neck of the woods. 

Not long after I posted my question, I got the name of someone who's office is walking distance from my work.  I figured, I'd give them a call.  Seems convenient, really.  So, I looked them up online and dialed the number

My call was answered by a cheerful lady who thanked me for calling such and such office.  Well, the name wasn't the same as what I was given, but I thought maybe it was a partnership, I rolled with it.  I asked if they were accepting new patients.  I was in luck as they were.  She asked me what I needed from them, and being the goof that I am, I said, "Well, I need to be able to stand up straight.".  Dead silence on the phone...  "So, are you needing just a check up and cleaning, or do you need to have some work done?"

Wait, what does that have to do with my back?  . . . Oooooooh.  I have the wrong number!

"Wait, cleaning?"  I asked her what office I had again, and she told me; such and such dental office.  Ha!  Funny story.  I actually was looking for a new dentist since after my latest move, mine is now some 20 miles away, and I have a tooth that's been bugging me.  This particular doctor is pretty close to my house, actually.  Now isn't this interesting?

In the end, I buttoned up the first half of my Tuesday with a new chiropractor *and* a new accidental dentist.  The best part?  All of this happened because I can't dial a fucking phone.
