Love Hate Relationship

I had to go to the dentist today. I love to know that my teeth are all clean, but I just can't seem to go there without having a cavity. Seriously! I went almost all the way through my school years with maybe 1 cavity and now in the past 5 years I have had at least 1 or 2 each year! I brush and floss. I am a floss girl for goodness sake!

I looked at my poor dentist and said, "Please tell me what to do and I will do it."

He just said, "Sorry, you are doing it all right. Some people just get cavities. On a positive note, you have great teeth."

Ahh bummer!

Since this post is all about teeth. It reminds me of when I was in college and volunteered in the Alzheimer's unit. Every Tuesday for about a year I would go and have lukewarm coffee with "my ladies." We usually had the same conversations, but they were such dear women.

One of them usually started the conversation with, "You know dearie, has anyone ever told you that you have great teeth?"

To which I would reply, "Not today!"

Then she would say, "You know if you were a horse we could get a great price for you."

I would look around the table to bunch of sober head nods! Hilarious! (At least the nurses laughed.)

Hey Angel! It's fun to see you're a fellow blogger :) My husband never had cavities until we started dating/kissing and now he's gotten them. . .I think I passed my bad teeth germs onto him?! Weren't you on a teeth commercial back in SF?! Am excited to see that you're adopting from Africa! Where are you in the process?!
