You can't make this shit up

I had to go to the dentist this morning to get my teeth cleaned, and there was a woman sitting in the dentist's waiting area eating oreo cookies and drinking a Yoo-Hoo.

I shit you not.

Who DOES That?! WTF?! Did they call her name, and did she plop down in the dentist's chair and give them a great big oreo-and-Yoo-Hoo-filled smile?

I'm still trying to wrap my head around it.

I mean, I guess if you HATED the hygienist, you'd want to make her job harder. But the hygienist's the one with the pointy instruments, for Pete's sake!

Oh, and it was nine in the morning. Nice breakfast!

The only way I can even comprehend this is that maybe she was waiting for someone else who was seeing the dentist. Even so, you think she'd at least go out to her car to eat her oreos and drink her Yoo-Hoo.

I always brush my teeth before going to the dentist. While he don't chug oreos and Yoohoo first, hubby does not brush citing "getting my money's worth". Heh.

Ewwwww. I brush, and floss, and gargle, and brush AGAIN before I go. God forbid they find anything in there.

I guess I'm just trained from so many orthodontist's appointments where they made me brush before they'd even look at me. I can't imagine eating anything whatsoever just before a dentist appointment. So weird.

I spent many quality hours at the orthodontist's. And it was so bizarre - it was just one big room, with the chairs all lined up down the middle, and the orthodontist would just go from kid to kid, like an assembly line.

I'd forgotten all about that. Thanks for the memories, kitkat! :)
