2. This morning I had to go to the dentist for a filling. And, you know, whatever, it's not fun at all but it's over pretty quickly. Today we were right in the middle of things and suddenly I had to sneeze. I was terrified that I actually would, and there are few things scarier than the thought of sneezing with a drill in your mouth (it's right behind sleeping in the White House). For a few seconds I thought it would be something that actually happened and not just something to gruesomely picture happening, but I was, thankfully, able to stave it off.
3. I just listened to last week's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, and Christopher Buckley was the guest celebrity. He said the nicest thing: "It's a scientific fact that everyone from Ohio is nice." I know from experience that this is far from the truth, but it warmed my heart, being a transplanted Ohioan. Speaking of Ohio, this week's episode of How I Met Your Mother centered around Ohioan-turned-New-Yorker Ted's inability to deal with his emotions: "I'm dealing with it Ohio style. Problem showed up, I avoided it, it went away." This is another thing I know isn't always true. But still! Way to represent, Ohio! You are more ubiquitous [relevant?] than I had realized.
