My weekend.

I've really not had such great luck lately. Friday was our law firm Christmas ("holiday") party.  I, instead, had dental work done and stayed home in pain.  That sucked.  I could EASILY go off on a tangent, helling-and-damning all physicians/dentists/PA's, etc. for NOT giving folks pain medicine when it is warranted.  Effing opioid epidemic.  What …
