I’ve been wondering why the heck the bunny photo in my blog header wasn’t loading. For some reason, the pic just disappeared. (Insert Marge growl here.) So I went in today and reloaded my custom header. Hopefully, my bunny will not disappear again. BratzBasher is amused by my small episode of “bunny withdrawal”. Whether that refers to the withdrawal of the bunny pic, or my withdrawal due to the withdrawal of the bunny pic, I don’t know. Maybe both.
On a completely different and not at all pleasant topic, I went to the dentist today. It was just a routine cleaning, and I always get the good dental hygienist, so it really isn’t that bad. Merkin doesn’t go to that particular dentist anymore because he always gets the bad ones. You know, the one who forgets to put the lead apron on you before taking x-rays, or the one who attacks like a dental tool-wielding psychopath.
It’s also important to be sure that when you visit Dr. Dentist you don’t wind up being tended to by his wife, the Other Dr. Dentist. She’s as bad as the aforementioned dh’s. The one time she worked on me, she tore up my gums with the novocaine needle. It took three weeks for them to heal properly. I think there was a bit of scarring. The flesh there is not as smooth as the rest of my gums. It feels like the burns you get from drinking hot chocolate before it’s properly cooled. Evil, nasty, sadistic Other Dr. Dentist. I’ve since resolved that if they ever attempt to reroute me to her chair, I’ll insist on rescheduling and tell them exactly why.
I mainly go to the dentist to set a good example for BratzBasher. Until last year, I hadn’t been to the dentist in about…15 years, or so. I must have inherited some really great tooth genes because the only real work that needed to be done on me was the replacement of my 20-year-old fillings. Unfortunately, one of those replacements fractured recently, and now I need a crown. That’s gonna cost. It won’t be very pleasant, either. At least Dr. Dentist has a real knack with the novocaine.
Unlike my sister bythelbs, I will not be listing the soundtrack to my dental visit. I only remember one song, and it was something lame by Jewel. I don’t really care for Jewel. All her songs sound the same, in my opinion. I wish you could choose your own dental office soundtrack. What songs would you choose? Would the mix differ according to what procedure you were having done? Inquiring minds want to know. I want to know.
