This blog started with my mouth open, shiny stainless steel poking and probing…lying on a dentist’s chair
I just got back form a very early morning appointment!! With the dentist… it wasn’t as bad as i thought it would be.
I decided to walk there while I was walking I decided to count the number of ladies I met on the way to the clinic. It was amazing….4 women: 3 gown ups and 1 4-5 year old girl. As compared to the men who were approx. 20 all walking in packs with skips in the step.
Luckily I got there 15 minutes early, picked up a magazine and idly began to scan the room. Although the place was spotless, the pips all looked like they were lining up to the Jack the Ripper!! Long pale faces, avoiding eye contact, looking every where but the reception (just incase the receptionist said Next)
My Dent’s comes out and spots me, she smiles walks up to me and says, you can come on in. That’s when I noticed, suddenly also looked like I was walking the plank, I certainly couldn’t explain the adrenaline rush… All my blood suddenly made its way to my feet.
After applying the anesthetic, Dents left the room. Suddenly I had a ‘Mr. Bean’ urge. There were all these odd looking things around me… But before I could even try them out the Main Dent arrives and parks his car right outside the window. I convinced myself he couldn’t see me coz the windows looked tinted from inside. Little did I know!! I noticed him bend a little, that’s when I realized he was trying to get a good look at who was in the chair!! Suddenly my finger nails became very interesting!!!
The whole procedure went without incident (Unlike my 4-year-old sparing incident with one Dent). My cheek and Tongue all felt ‘humongous’… Have you ever tried to jeer after leaving the dentist? Try it!!
On my way back to work, I walked behind an old man…Big Mistake on my part. Dude was spewing spittle like he owned the streets. I hurried to walk past him. I relaxed as soon as I was ahead of him….Only to be met by another Spittle Spewer walking in the opposite direction. To make matters worse, I noticed about 5 spittle puddles on the walkway!!
What are we turning into? Llamas???
