ocean's twelve? sixteen? four? ELEVEN!!!

is it just me, or does julia roberts walk funny?

*shakes head to clear thoughts*

where was i? why am i stopping in here? oh, yes, yes *nods* to share the glee of my dentist-o-doom. (the world just doesn't use the words "doom" and "goo" enough in their sentences, is my personal thought..).. i go in... i sit through painful x-rays that felt like helga (i'll call her that, she spoke even LESS engrish than my dentist, which isn't saying much, and she had a thiiiick slovic accent?) was trying to carve her initials into the meaty flesh under my tongue, then sat in the Chair-o-Terror for over a half hour whilst they negotiated with my insurance company. then came the bill. $131 freaking bucks for stuff that is SUPPOSED to be covered by Humana. fine, i say, just clean me up!!! out comes the various hooks and pokey prods and other torture devices. the scraping begins, the wincing and eye-tearing continues, as i watch him wiping the BLOOD OUT FROM BETWEEN MY TEETH. that didn't horrify me as much as when he flipped the hook around to use the other razor sharp side, I SAW MY MEATY FLESH DANGLING FROM THE HOOK. okay, FINE, it wasnt meaty flesh. and there certainly wasn't any dangling involved. but it WAS bloody. so all i could do as he scraped and scratched away with the other end was stare in horror at the bloody hook. when he sits me up, i see exactly HOW many gauze squares he sucked my blood up with. i pay with my credit card, and leave, stomping back to work to wave my bill furiously under my HR Director's nose.

my teeth are clean, for the first time in 8 years, barring the usual brushings and flossings. i'm not a floss-o-holic, but i do feel that i floss more than the average bear. looking into my rearview mirror in the jeep, i was convinced that my gums would be a bloody, pulsating mass of goo, and, barring the dried BLOOD in spots between my teeth, they looked fairly good.

I promise you it won't be anywhere near as bad next time. Just be glad you didn't have any cavaties after all that time!

he said that considering i hadn't been to the dentist in over 8 years, that my teeth look remarkably well.

*puffs up with pride*

it's truly amazing, it is, seeing as my mom's teeth were so bad she got dentures at age 19, and my dad's enamel on the front of all his teeth wore right off by the time i was born...
