Another benefit of unemployment – I saw the inside of a dentist's office for the first time since 2014. The prognosis: they though I was in great shape despite all that time having passed. I couldn't get out of there without them urging action over a receding gum, but I could see their hope die when I told them my benefits were ending soon due to my losing my job. Not very likely to spend $texas on anything right now. Then the doc admitted that the gum's been stable for four years.
