The dentist's orders.

This morning I had a cavity filled. My heart was in my throat and my knuckles were white from squeezing the leather dentist chair. It doesn't hurt, because the dentist numbs the area, but the sound. Oh, the sound. The drilling and the grinding. When it was all over, he advised me not to eat anything solid or anything hot for at least four hours. "Have a smoothie or shake for lunch," he told me.

Of course I had a 22oz chocolate shake for lunch. And no one wonders why I have cavities.


  1. what a cool dentist...
    mine told me to not eat any sugar, EVER.
    what a jerk.

  2. Ha! I think mine gives me the junk food go-ahead to ensure repeat business ;)
