Did you know that an almond raspberry slice at Costa coffee is 458 calories??? But after the dentist I felt I deserved it.. she was more polite than last time, six months ago. I think she remembered my little talk on 'I am a war baby and lucky to have any teeth at all !!!’ Or my notes are marked as 'difficult grumpy old bag!!'
However, after examining my teeth, she offered to clean them, which I wasn't happy about, as I rarely ever need that. However she said that it wouldn't hurt and just take a minute or two... well she stretched my little mouth to its limits, sprayed me with water all over my face and dug around at the base of my poor teeth. I stopped her when she got to my sensitive tooth and she said, ‘just rinse,’ and was then going to polish my teeth, but I hopped out of the chair, well actually struggled to get up from the prostrate position they put you these days and said.... 'Enough I don't want that and I am not having that done again!!!' Didn't wait for her to say anything else and slammed the door on my way out!!! Which I might add, I had to ask to have closed otherwise anyone going past would see me stretched out on the couch with my mouth saying '0', what a to-do!!
DH has to see the hygienist, why I don't know because he cleans his teeth every night and I sometimes don't, but when I do clean my teeth I clean them for at least 3 minutes. When I worked I used to watch my digital clock from the door of my ensuite, and if you have ever done that you’ll know that the numbers jiggle up and down when using an electric tooth brush, so that must be your eye balls as the clock stays still !!LOL
I asked to have my next appointment Feb 1st 2013, twelve months away!! I am hoping by then, she will have moved on!!LOL
So you can see, I had to have that almond slice I deserved it!!LOL
Thank goodness I have some uncomplicated stitching to do this evening as Lesleyanne has lent me her Snowman L*K chart.
