Involuntary weight-reduction program

After the UT football game and taking pity on another patient, the dentist agreed to call his assistant and open his office. The other patient went first, because she's to leave town tomorrow morning for an entire month. She's the first female cable- or wire-puller and installer that I've met. She said a lot of people try the work but find that fear of heights gets to them. In a period lasting twelve hours or so, I lost about 12 pounds, just like that. When there's trouble in the tooth department, the appetite vanishes and a person stays very physically active to take the mind off the unpleasantness.
