Tooth Time

I spent the morning at the dentist getting a new crown. He's very sweet and complimented me afterward about being such a good patient, so calm. For a moment, I thought he was going to pat me on the head. He seemed very struck when I explained it was the Valium I had popped on the way in. Sweetie, I didn't make it through both the 70s and the 80s without learning the value of drugs. Most striking was his new assistant, a creature so nell as to make me look like a lumberjack. I kept expecting him to break into his tribute to Dame Shirley Bassey, but he must have been saving that for the after-lunch crowd.

  1. It's true, those of us who survived the 70s & 80s know all about "better living through chemistry". It's what gets us through the day!

  2. His tribute to Dame Shirley Bassey?

    Is that a new sonic form of teeth cleaning?

    I bet it's good.

  3. "Without chemicals, life as we know it would be impossible." I'd be able to remember whose slogan that what, but I did too many drugs.
