So, yesterday, we left the east coast of Australia bound for Paris. It is a long trip, with a stop over in Singapore for a couple of hours and then another 14 hours to Paris. In all, From the time you leave home until you are able to book in it is about 35 hours.
All good. About an hour out on the flight complimentary peanuts are handed out with a beer. Great. Chomp, chomp, chomp.
Problem. Tongue finds half a tooth missing. The nuts which were really hard as iron have shattered a tooth (which I have swallowed) and left a clod of a crown or filling hanging out which cuts my tongue every time it darts there (which of course it always does).
So, am I stoic and pretend everything is fine, or do we abandon everything and get a return flight from Singapore? (I will say this is a romantic escape as it is a large number birthday celebration for my wife and I surprised her with Paris).
So we carried on, me eating soft food on one side and drinking beer. Got to Paris and Concierge arranged a dentist on a Saturday afternoon. 180 Euro later (about $250 US) tooth is all fine and we have a beer looking at the Arc de Triomphe.
