Saturday Musings

Call me crazy, but I love going to the Dentist. I really do. Not for drilling or root canals or any of the other horrible procedures the Dentist has up his sleeve, but I really like going in for the routine checkup and cleanings. Of course, I do hate the little metal pick they drag along your teeth when they're checking for tartar or whatever; that part is pure, liquid nightmares.

Anyway, the reason I bring this up at all is because I was thinking about how when the person cleaning my teeth is doing the pick thing, they always wipe it off on my little bib; that always makes me feel a little indignant, like they just came up and wiped something horrible on my shirt... Then I remember that the bib is there for exactly that purpose. And then I feel silly.
Am I the only one?

Hmm... is it just me or does Meg's WV sound like one of the words the dentist mutters to his assistant when he's checking out your teeth? I could swear mine has said something like that...

I hate everything about the dentist. Dentists and orthodontists are soul-eaters, and I don't ever want to go there again.

The only ONLY good thing about the dentist is laughing gas. And getting to watch Meet the Robinsons while I'm ON laughing gas.

Oh man! I was TOTALLY right! "Occlusal" is totally a dental term!

The word verification is obviously a source of great knowledge and power...
