“You’re doing so well! Almost done….you’re doing great….”
Sometimes, I think my dentist forgets I am 23. In fact, I was waiting for him to give me a sticker after I got my cavities filled today. Maybe I will get one on Monday. I’ve been going to the same dentist since I was 7-years-old and I really do enjoy going to the dentist. It is oddly soothing to go to a place where people have known you most of your life. Even if my dentist forgets my age, I know he will ask about my family and my life.
But SADNESS he is RETIRING! My dentist didn’t even change when I went to college. It is going to be weird having someone else poking in my mouth.
Obviously that is why I have 4 cavities that need to be filled…because I need to eek out those last few moments at the dentist…yeah, that’s it.
