Have you ever "almost died?"

open thread, weekend open thread, Jane, worst mom in the world, dentists

I'm in LA with Courteney and got stuck here when my tooth exploded and I wasn't allowed to fly.

The sexy South African doctor said that my face — all of our faces — are like layers of an onion and the pressure from the infected area of my tooth and jawbone had pushed the swelling up into my facial planes and that it was next to my eye and that it could easily get pushed into my eye AND BRAIN if I flew and that it could kill me to leave when I was insistent upon leaving. Haha.

Then I, the worst mom in the world, told this to Charlotte so she keeps asking if I'm going to die all the time. Feel free to contest my Worst Mom in the World status or answer one of these less high stakes than life and death but equally as random as life and death questions.

Do you have (rational or irrational) fear of the dentist?

Or any other phobias?

Did you watch the Grammy's?

Did you drink enough water today?

When was the last time you were in an airport (to fly or otherwise)?

What's your favorite kind of office supplies?

How many phone numbers do you have memorized?

How many random questions should there be in Open Thread each week?

Join me — and each other — in the comments because I'm not going anywhere (thanks for the tip, sexy South African doctor!) for the next few days and there's no place I'd rather be than right here with you all.
