Tc’s Theory of Understanding

My readership has been picking up as of late so I’m happy to see that my misfortune is found fascinating by the public. It reminds me of Don Henley’s song Dirty Laundry, “People love it when you lose, they love dirty laundry.” I don’t really mean that because I’m the one whose playing around with the incident. The bottom line though is that this has become an expensive mistake. I take you back to 07′ at the Univ of Pitt when I faceplanted on a sidewalk and chipped by front two teeth. This was on a Friday and I spent that night and the next day drinking while I had two tiny little baby teeth up front. It wasn’t until Tuesday that I got them fixed and this was to a tune of 1,100 dollars. Spring ahead to what just happened recently and my dental bill was 600 and I found out today that an implant for the tooth I broke is 2,200. My insurance will cover some but in the end this was about a 3k mistake. So why am I telling you about how stupid and costly this was and why I’m perfectly fine with paying every dime.

I wrote in the last post that I don’t have a religious bone in my body. What I didn’t write was that I have a theory on why things happen as they do. Everyone always talks about fate and how things happen for a reason. I think most people would usually attribute a higher power to this because there really isn’t too much better of an explanation. I don’t really believe that it’s a god that does these things but it’s more like the game of life testing your character and trying to make you better for it. That’s why I wrote I’m perfectly fine paying this outrageous sum because I deserve it. Life tried to teach me 3 years ago by slapping me on the wrist for a k. Now 3 years later I’m still up to the same shenanigans and now it’s beating me over the head with 3k in damages. I would also say that this time was worse in the sense of physical damage as well. I’m being punished 3x worse because I didn’t learn my lesson the first time and this time life is hitting me harder hoping that the severity of what I’m doing to myself will kick in. I honestly need it and accept the fact. Bad things happen to people who get out of line and sometimes they need a rude awakening to let them know they have been wrong. At this point in time I feel like I have something to prove and hopefully will learn from this life lesson because if I don’t, life is going to hit with a 9 bagger and it’s not going to be pretty. I don’t want to know what it’s going to be but if my theory holds any validity (it probably doesn’t) I’m going to be in some serious shit. I can’t remember a time where I’ve felt more optimistic about moving forward then I do now. Bad things don’t usually happen to good people unless it’s some sort of freak accident. Bad things happen to bad people and they usually do it to themselves. I think it’s time for me to start trying to be good. I also want to point out that I know I’m not a bad person but I do stupid things that deserve to get me in trouble probably more often than they do. I honestly and one of the luckiest people I know. I’ve been through so many close calls and every time I get out fine. From my point of view, the futures so bright, I gotta wear shades. It’s a song by Timbuk 3.

I’ll post some before and after pictures once I fully heal.
