A Day at the Dentist... and Beyond
Yesterday, I had to sit in the dentist chair for two hours straight. They asked me if I wanted to take a break, but I mostly just wanted to get it over with.
While he is working, he talks and talks and talks. He talks to me... he talks to the assistant across from him... he talks to the person waiting in the next chair on the other side of the curtain. He reminds me a little of Jay Leno. He makes funny little comments. Not jokes, just jokey little blurbs. If no one laughs, he tries another one. Other dentists I've been to have a t.v. that you can watch. This dentist doesn't need a t.v.... he talks.
In the afternoon, I picked up my nieces at school. They were all in a good mood yesterday. Not one fight or argument. Whew! The eleven-year old, Sarah, is now on a competitive gymnastics team, so she has a three hour long practice on Tuesday and Thursday. We dropped her off at 4:15, and the rest of us went home. We played with the puppy. They had all their Easter candy in the kitchen, but didn't eat one piece. I think they have had their fill for a while. I didn't know that would ever happen!
