Plagued by a persistent toothache since last Sunday.  I finally checked in with the dentist on Wednesday afternoon after the painkillers stopped working.  Was ushered into root canal procedure today.  

Feeling old, tired and battered.

"Remember I love you," I say. 

"I can never forget you for a moment," he says. "We're not two people but one. You're the raison d'être for my heartbeat, darling. I love you for e-ter-ni-ty."
