Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound. I had to visit the dentist this week to get fitted for a partial. Not too thrilled about it, but the dentist believes that this will take pressure off my front teeth since I have very few back teeth. I was born with weak enamel…kind of soft on the top and very prone to cavities despite the best dental care. My parents took me to the dentist more times than I care to count, but over time there is only so much you can do. So the dentist pulls out this big metal plate…fills it with gunk and shoves it into the top of my mouth. I immediately go into a gag mode….I bolt upright…yank that plate out of my mouth and with both hands start taking the pink gunk out of my mouth and throwing it on the dentist chair. What a mess, but the dentist was very nice about it and told me a lot of patients gag on the stuff since it has to go so far back in the back of the mouth. So he pulls out some numbing spray and sprays the back of my mouth and the second attempt went without issue. Question is…why did the dentist not do that the first time? Would have saved a lot of clean-up time. Duh!!
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“If a man says something in the woods and there are no women there, is he still wrong?”
– Steven Wright
An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one-question final exam after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics. The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk, and wrote on the board: “Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this chair does not exist.” Fingers flew, erasers erased, and notebooks were filled in furious fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class, however, was up and finished in less than a minute. Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group wondered how he could have gotten an “A” when he had
barely written anything at all. His answer consisted of two words: “What chair?”
Well, that is a wrap. As always, be good, play safe and remember to take good care of your teeth. Getting all that pink gunk out of your mustache is a real pain.
