I am showing my pearly whites today. Went to the dentist and got them all cleaned up and....drum roll please....no cavities!! For some of you "lucky-toothed" people this will seem incredibly silly...but for those of you who know me and my "dental woes" you know that this is a huge deal! I finally have the "issues", as the dentist would say, resolved, so just for fun I am going to go and get an old filling replaced in September....I thought going 6 months without Novocaine might be like quitting cold turkey so I made an appointment. It's a win-win situation, I get to replace an ugly old silver filling with a pretty new "tooth colored" one, and my dentist gets to take the whole month of August off for vacation to the Bahamas.
So today I might even say that today I have a bird on my finger, except I am feeling a bit like the Cheshire Cat...
I do have to say that I am starting to feel old...my Dental Hygienist was VERY young. She had just graduated this year and this was her first full time job, and she was getting married in September. When I told her I had been married for ten years she gave me that "holy cow" look and then gently tried to brush it off by saying "That's cool!". This happened last month when I got established with a new doc here in town. She was definitely my age or a bit younger...scary.
The only thing that makes me feel better is that my parents will be celebrating there 34 wedding anniversary tomorrow. Now that's old!!! (Hi Dad!)
