Okay, I have something that I have to admit. I didn’t vote last week.
I apparently am the problem within my state and country right now.
But wait, before you unfollow…I have an excuse. Gum disease. You heard me right.
Monday I had my regularly scheduled dental check up. For the record, I think that dentists and everyone associated with the dental field are sadists. They seem to take great joy in my pain. And if the dental procedure doesn’t hurt, the bill sure will.
Back to Monday, the hygenist told me that I needed to come in as soon as possible for a deep cleaning. I scheduled an appointment for the following day over the lunch hour.
So when Tuesday rolled around, I went to the gym in the morning to work out. After that, I hurried off to work so I could leave early for the dentist.
After 20 minutes of painful drilling, I asked the hygenist what I did wrong. She said that gum disease is caused by poor hygiene. I pleaded that I floss several times a week and brush several times a day. I argued my innocence like a convicted felon who was incarcerated for a crime never commited. Paul said that everyone probably says they have good hygiene even if they don’t.
Really, is there a wrong way to floss??
Gum disease could also be cause by stress and hormones and I am sticking to it.
I got poked, prodded, and slapped with a $200 bill.
For a couple of hours after the appointment, I felt like crap. I don’t know if I’m getting an ulcer or if it was the aftermath of the extreme anxiety I feel towards dentists.
I went back to work with the idea that I would leave early to vote. That didn’t work out because we had an employee call in so I had to stay late.
I barely made it home in time to eat something before play practice. How could I go vote?
We just moved and I couldn’t find any mail sitting around associated with my name and new address. Plus the cars outside of where I would vote were lined up into the next county. How could I zip in and out before my next time committment??
So I didn’t vote. I am the problem with this country right now. Good intentions don’t count as a ballot. Might as well blame it on the dentist. Yeah, why not??
