I think I'll just do a top ten, why not?
1: Thank GOD for dental insurance, otherwise I would be penniless.
2: Drinking coffee through a straw is not a good idea.
3: If your mouth is numb on one side, do not attempt a smile. You will look like the Joker. Or Elvis, with his lopsided grin.
4: When the dentist and his assistants continue to engage in conversation with you, with their hands in your mouth, just make a few small noises here and there to show that you're still breathing, don't attempt to talk.
5: Floss. I've said this before. But please, do it.
6: I thought I had a high threshold for pain. But, when the dentist says "please tell me if you feel ANYthing", and you do, tell him. A few quick shots and you wouldn't feel a brick thrown at your cheek.
7: Pharmacy technicians are not happy people. Oh I kid, I can't generalize like that. But really, I've found that most of them are just irritated by your presence. What I learned: A big smile can change that. But see number 3. That's probably why it worked, he thought I looked like a clown.
8: Singing at the top of your lungs in between the comings and goings of the dental assistants provides sheer entertainment for their day. Try it.
9: I don't enjoy the elevator music version of The Lion Sleeps Tonight near as much as the one with words.
10: I love Trains new song, Marry Me.
And there you have it!
See you soon friend,
