Jaw, as in, “Open wide!” Yep, a dentist day. You see why I couldn’t use Jump for Joy on this particular challenge letter day. I’m starting this post before I leave, in case I come back with nothing remotely nice to say. This morning I can at least bring out the fact that one of my best friends is part of the dentistry world.
Vickie went through dental assistant school while we were both raising our children, although hers are about 10 years older than mine. We were also music fans. We followed several bands between Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. We went to a few concerts.
One of our most memorable nights was spent at a front row table, listening to a band crank out beautiful, fun tunes, while Vickie studied for a test. She had to memorize the names of various
torture dental instruments. I think this was in Oregon and she had a test the next morning in Olympia, Washington. Cutting it close, but she made it and now makes her living as a dental assistant.
Well, I need to get ready for the my appointment, I will finish this later and add some kind of photo.
Back from dentist. Forget the photo, I’m not in the mood. Sorry. I’ll make up for it tomorrow. Cleaning and fillings appointments are really messing with my schedule to see friends, family and boyfriend. Damn. I’ll work hard to find something helpful or cheerful for K.
