Flabbergasted...

Well my title pretty much describes how I feel right now. Len is the name of my best friend's kid brother, a dentist in Chicago, he's 60. I called Len today to get his opinion of my latest dental report and he checked with the Arizona Dental Board and the results left me flabbergasted! The only problem that Lloyd did not have was an addiction to making love to lizards. That's right. His discipline record was as long as my arm and he was found guilty of issuing prescription for controlled substances unrelated to dentistry. Basically selling prescriptions for drugs like Oxycontin and Vicodin, double billing for dental work and sexual addition. Over the last 20 years his license was suspended more than it wasn't and if I'd looked for a worse dentist, it would have been hard to beat his horrible record. He was ordered into rehab for addiction to alcohol and cocaine and also sexual addition.

On a better note, I was accepted for health insurance and once again will be able to feel comfortable enough to actually get sick. My new insurance card came today so I rushed over to Sonora Health services where the young innocent girl actually made hamburger meat out of both my arms, looking for a vein.

My first stop of the day was to Costco for a run for water and eggs and who do you suppose I actually tripped over when leaving? That's right, the Lovely Jules. You could have knocked me over with a feather and I mean it literally. She was there interviewing the phone salesman for her new secret shopper job. She bought me a coke and a book and we spent the rest of the day together. I like a woman that showers her men with gifts...

LJ became my wife for membership purposes only. I enrolled her on my Costco membership card as a significant other. Jules wore white for the occasion and from there we headed to the vampire's office (Sonoran Health Services) for a good old blood letting.

I was in a pretty good mood all day, until I saw the previous record of my delinquent dentist. I couldn't have made a worse choice of I'd studied it. To add insult to injury. In 2007, someone sued him and was awarded a $102,000 settlement as Lloyd went bankrupt simultaneously. The poor victim finally agreed to accept $5000 as payment in full and got it only by putting a lien on Lloyd's house that he just lost in a short sale. That means, no mal-practice insurance, I'm almost sure. Whoa is me!
