Got back from a visit to the dentist a little while ago — a trip I had been very anxious about because I had not been in a couple of years (since before we moved here).
I knew I needed a cleaning (you may have noticed the forest green color of my teeth on the telecast recently), and I strongly suspected that I had at least two cavities.
However, according to Mr. Dentist and Captain X-ray Machine, there are no signs of decay at all. Woo hoo! I feel like I have been given a new lease on life!
It was even more important to me to have a nice visit since I had Boy #3 and Boy #4 with me, and it was Boy #4’s very first visit to the dentist. Unlike Daddy, they were both very excited about going, and I didn’t want to ruin their fun by having them watch Manly Daddy cry like a little girl.
Now, you may be saying, “Hey, Smith — Isn’t the fact that he didn’t see any cavities bad news, since it leaves your cavity-like symptoms, however mild, unexplained?”
To which, I will answer, “Leave me alone.”
