Today I went to the dentist. Why is the waiting room so gloomy? I was sitting in there looking around at the worried faces, listening to the occasional drill and thinking about my day when it suddenly occurred to me-- should I be scared of what is about to go down here? It's just a cleaning but my gums ALWAYS bleed. When Dixie the hygienist came in to clean my teeth I told her about my bleeding gums and she responded by saying,
"Well, that's probably because you don't do it enough." touche i guess.
But guess what happened? I bled, I gushed! It hurt.
Oh well though. That was nothing compared to what happened next. She had me swish water around in my mouth and I still do not know what happened but for some inexplicable reason, the water exploded from my mouth right on to my lap.
Dixie did not join in with me.
oh and one last thing. The suction thing that you stick in your mouth is INSANE. The whole time I don't know where to put it and so I tried several places (top, bottom, side to side) and every place I put it, it made weird noises and so I'd quickly move it but it would catch my tongue and practically rip it out. And once I felt like I couldn't breathe and I got dizzy.
Good glory. Who knew the dentist was so dangerous?
