Moments before my root canal, I was right on the verge of feeling sorry for myself. Then I remembered it was Veterans Day. And now, I’ve decided to proceed without anesthetic. I’m kidding, of course. But whatever discomfort awaits, is laughably insignificant when compared to the sacrifices made by the men and women who wear our country‘s uniforms. Thanks to you all. I’d love to say more, but I have to spit now.
