I don’t like to dwell on the negative but I wouldn’t be truthful if I said my favorite place to spend my lunch break is at the dentist. Dentistry not necessarily the dentist (although there have been a few I wouldn’t return to) just isn’t my favorite event to take part in. I like to refer to it as a necessary evil. Well yesterday I had a dentist appointment that was made clear about in 2011; which in my world is a million years ago. Forgive me but for some reason I just like big numbers. I guess the advantage to making an appointment so long ago is that one forgets the reason for the appointment. Case in point yesterday when I went to my dentist appointment I fully expected to get my teeth cleaned. However, this was not the case. Upon my arrival I was escorted back to the non-teeth cleaning area. I inquired why am I here? Oh today you are going to get a crown. Special says I. It was the royalty visit. In reality it is probably best I didn’t know. I had no time to fret. An hour and a half later I was headed back to work with a delightful temporary and instructions to not chew anything. Note to self don’t schedule dentist appointments during the lunch hour unless of course you are dieting in which case it is a perfect time!
