While other people are drinking fermented milk in Central Asiatic former Soviet Republics, I go about my daily life in rainy Utrecht. For instance, today I went to the dentist. Brrr. It’s not so much my dentist – who is a really nice polish woman – but I actually got to spend almost 2 hours in her chair. And the anaesthetic didn’t work! Probably due to some near-inflammation [?] in one of my molars. Now I’m tired because of the pain, my jaw is sore, and I’m hoping everything will stay OK.
