J. Arthur Crank on Phone

(no subject)

All aboard the Root Canal Train, departing this afternoon at 1:00 pm. Toot toot!

Really not looking forward to this for many reasons, the least of which is that I'm only going in for the procedure today. It'll take a least a full month plus for me to get the cap and crown, since I have to pay for them at the time of the putting-inski session and I can't afford all that at once.

So while we wait to finish the work on the installment plan, as it were, I'll be walking around with a goddamned post in the front of my mouth where once a bad tooth used to lurk. Not that it could make me look any worse, mind you, and not that I've had any previous experience not smiling-with-teeth, but it's going to be a really sore point for quite some time.

Yeah, I'm really really really looking forward to the holiday season.

I just hope the work all gets done before January 17th, since that's a performance date.

A3 - Ain't Goin to Goa
Mojo Nixon - Ain't Got No Boss
Clarence "Frogman" Henry - Ain't Got No Home
Mojo Nixon - Ain't High Falutin'
John Prine - Ain't Hurting Nobody
Leon Redbone - Ain't Misbehaving
Louis Jordan - Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens
Dean Martin - Ain't That a Kick in the Head

Six thousand songs on that music machine over there and only eight that start with Ain't.



WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED FROM ALL THIS?

1. You can use the word all you want if you're Mojo Nixon.
2. If you're not Mojo Nixon you can still use the word, but be sure to round it out with a double negative to really annoy the pedants.
