I went to the dentist yesterday. I made it out without any cavities or cause for much concern, really. Though- I still find my mouth to be a little sore due to some aggressive last minute flossing.
Stop looking at me like that.
Oh yeah, like you floss everyday.
Anyway, I found myself at the office about 10 minutes early for my appointment, so I walked over to the waiting room where I was faced with beige couches and old magazines, or I could opt for the children's nook. Which to be honest, is just the floor with couch cushions propped up against the back of the big couch and a small tv screen inside the wall. For memory's sake, I took up a spot on the floor, grabbed the teddy bears that have been there since I was a child and listened to Christmas music while I waited.
My aunt came into the waiting room to get me, I saw her but she looked around obviously not seeing me on the floor with the bears and was startled when I jumped up from behind the couch. She laughed and asked me, "Where is the adult?" to which I replied as I hugged her, "Not in here!"
So, I had to make a tally before I left to see where I stood as a responsible adult:
Yes, I chose to sit on the floor with the old toys while I waited.
No, I don't floss nearly as much as I should.
BUT- I drove myself to the appointment, obviously brush my teeth enough to not have cavities, AND I have my own dental coverage.
I think I come out ahead when it comes down to it.
We won't talk about how when I got home I ate Taco Bell in bed and fell asleep watching youtube for 2 1/2 hours. And then I woke up just in time to go to a sports bar to get pizza and watch Monday Night Football with Landon.
