I survived.


3 years. Three whole, stinkin' years.

That's how long it had been since I'd last been to the dentist. (Fer shame, I know.) If you could judge loathing in "days since"...you'll get an idea of how much I enjoy the dentist.

Well, I mean...not THE dentist. He's a gem. A complete doll. The hygienist is too. It's just the stuff they do in my mouth. The SCRAPE. SCRAPE. SCRAPING. The poking and prodding. The unwieldy large x-ray thing-a-ma-jig they make a girl bite on.

I hate it. Which in turn, makes me hate them, but only for a second. As soon as their hands and instruments are out of my mouth, I love them again. But, back in they go and then HERE COMES THE HATE.

It's a good thing they can't hear what's in my head.

Regardless...I survived. And even got a "cavity free" bill of dental health!

(Hmmmmm...makes me wonder if I should push it to 4 years next time.) ;)

  2. HATE going to the dentist - but I have you beat. Until a couple of weeks ago, it had been 11 years since my last visit. I figure I can go once a year and get one cavity filled (I don't have cavity free visits) or I can go every 10-11 years and have 10 cavities filled.

    I don't discriminate though - I hate going to the doctor also.

  3. I like going to the dentist. Hook me up to the nitrous, and I am just fine. :)

  4. This "you should go to the dentist every 6 months" business is just a racket... if it ain't broke - don't fix it! Congrats on the good checkup!

  6. I can totally relate...and I'm working on year 4 myself. It weighs on me though...and I think I will make an appointment soon...maybe next week I'll call. Right!?! ;)
