My faithful little Saturn has let me down. It failed DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality). It puts out too many hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide to be considered drivable in our urban-dense metropolitan area.
Being the responsible person I am, I am taking the little Saturn to the Saturn dealer where they will poke it and prod it and ultimately charge me lots of money to get it through DEQ – no promises. I’m just hoping it isn’t too expensive. The little Saturn took half my paycheck last time we went to the dealer.
On a happier note, my jaw is relaxing. I bought myself a “night guard” to prevent teeth grinding. I boiled it up and fitted it according to the directions. But when I tried to sleep with it I couldn’t. It was too large and awkward in my small mouth. It felt like a wedge, forcing my back teeth apart in such a way that was most uncomfortable. It made me want to grind my teeth and clench my jaw – exactly what we are trying not to do. Maybe I can get my money back.
