Whew! I went to the dentist today for my six-month cleaning and checkup and made it out alive. Even though they did the dreaded "probe", where they take a sharp pointy thing and jab it into your gums repeatedly to see if you will bleed. I mean, really, the question is not "if" but "when", isn't it? Jab jab jab jab jab jab ........ there's gonna be some blood at some point, right? Especially with Nurse Ratched at the wheel. Although, actually, I did not get Nurse Ratched today, but another hygienist. Who seemed disconcertingly pleased that she got me to bleed at two different locations (in my mouth, not in the office). I was frankly amazed that it was only two ... jab jab jab jab jab.
I have no idea how those hygienists can do that all day long ... jab jab jab jab jab ... Sadists.
OK, ok, first the puke post, now this ...... I'll try to be cheerier next time. Promise.
