Sparkle sparkle

Today I had my twice yearly dentist appointment. Needless to say, I am a very good customer. I would like to think that I’ve helped him make a number of boat payments or payments on his kid’s 529 plan or something. Overall, I really like him and his upfront style. He is just older than me (mid thirties) and seems to be able to relate well. My wife, however, does not like him. She thinks that he is a very arrogant guy who swoops in and out like he owns the place. I, of course, am always quick to remind tiff that he DOES own the place, but that he beside the point.

One thing that I have always enjoyed / found interesting is how he hires mostly younger cuter dental hygienists. Normally this would be a good thing. However, do some quick thinking….. This person does nothing but scrape crud off of your teeth – all the while, trying to hold on a conversation with you while looking at your tonsils. If anything, I’d like my hygienist to have a bit of ‘life experience’. That is, I’d like her to have seen so much stuff that my minimal crud looks awesome compared to some of the people that they see. Makes sense right!?
