Words with Dentists

I went to the dentist today.  I drink a lot of Diet Coke.  You probably see where this is going...

dr: well, you've got about 5 'trouble zones' that are probably cavities
me: oh.  wow.  that sounds really bad.
dr: and, it looks like your current filings are getting pretty old.
me: ok?
dr: so, you need to come back in July, and we'll assess the situation.
me: [don't cry, don't cry, don't cry, don't cry]
dr: you know, the silver lining of all this is that, when we fill these new cavities, it will be time to re-fill all your old ones!  so we can do them all at once!
me: [fake laugh, fake laugh, fake laugh.  ugh, fine. cry.]

I'm a mess.


  1. Seriously is it not one of life's huge injustices that it's not socially acceptable to cry at the dentist after 10????? Totally feel you on this...... Ugh..... Stay strong!

  2. Thanks lady! I've decided to drown my sorrows in Diet Coke, which I'm sure you'll agree, is an excellent solution to this problem.
