Dental appointment highlights

29 Sep

Getting ready for my rubber dam.

Dental Assistant: Do you have any latex allergies or anything like that?

Me: No.

DA: Okey-dokey.  We can get started then.  Oh, and that is a great foil.  My hair was supposed to turn out like that, but it didn’t. 

Yeah, it really didn’t.


Here’s a visual of me with my rubber dam:

 Did you know they’re now providing protective eyewear and full mustaches?


I’ve got my dam on.

DA:  I just got back from a cruise to Alaska.  Have you ever been to Alaska?

Me:  Grunt-grunt.

DA:  It was cold and interesting.

Me:  Grunt.

DA:  Those are cute tennies.

Me:  Grunt grunt.

DA:  Where’d you get them?

Me:  Grunt grunt-grunt.

Grunt grunt grunt $!#&*%? grunt-grunt grunt grunt grunt grunt, grunt $!#&*%? moron!


Dr. Mode gets to work.

Dr., to DA:  What have you got over there?  Do you have a cone?

DA:  A what?

Dr., gesturing unintelligibly:  A cone…the cone.

DA, handing her an instrument:  You mean the acorn thingy?

Dr., looking at the instrument:  Yeah, that’s it.

Um, don’t these dental instrument “thingies” have actual names?!?


The soundtrack:

America, Neil Diamond
50 Ways to Leave Your Love, Paul Simon
Ebony & Ivory, McCartney & Wonder
something by Whitney
Back in the High Life Again, Steve Winwood
Electricity, Elton John
The Way It Is, Bruce Hornsby
Don’t Wanna Lose You, Gloria Estefan

And a couple others I forgot.


The verdict.

Dr. Mode

    I think that playlist may be more brutal than the root canal…

    Wow, that dental assistant is so obsessed with you. And I wonder what they do for people with latex allergies? I hate dam latex…er, latex dams.

    Wow, it’s like the energy in that office completely shifted. A root canal and a less-than-stellar soundtrack? What gives??
