Close your eyes and enjoy the scraping

The other day as I was standing in line at the grocery store I thought to myself, “When someone has their hands in your mouth what are you supposed to look at?”

Luckily, no one in the grocery store had their hands in my mouth (at least not during that trip). I had just been at the dentist earlier in the day, and I got a clean bill of dental health and clean teeth to boot.

As the dental hygienist was doing her thing I had a choice to make: stare at her or close my eyes and think of England.

I opted to close my eyes for the duration, which I think is the right choice for all involved.

  1. Hi Scott! I usually read your blog in NetNewsWire, and since I’m not clicking through, I don’t think to leave a comment. You made me laugh out loud today, so I thought I’d make the (gasp!) extreme effort to click through to a comment field, which is where I find myself rambling now. Anyway – I just wanted to let you know that I’m out here reading and enjoying every post and book recommendation, whether I muster the energy to comment or not. Excelsior!
