Floss or Loss (of money)... Your choice!

I'm recovering from going to the Dentist this morning. Recovering you say... she must have had a root canal or something. Nope, this was just a regular cleaning. It was with the dentist though (rather than the nice hygienist). If the dentist brings you straight to her chair instead of the Hygienist, be afraid. Be very. Afraid. Back in the day, I used to be freaked out that the dentist would tell me that I have a cavity. Little did I know that life would get much more complicated. Apparently I have sensitive gums, and she found this out by digging into them with that dangerous tooth scraper (which should be banned in 26 states). She asked if I flossed everyday, which I replied "of course" She caught that bluff right away.

Moral of the story/point of this post, is to MAKE SURE YOU FLOSS! I now have to go back in 3 months for another cleaning (oh that extra trip is NOT covered on insurance so there goes $100 that could have bought Rocco a couple months of dog food-- haha jk I will still feed him). I made Gus an appointment as well (if I had this much fun there was no way in hell I'd let him miss out!)

Me: 0 Dentist: 1

To be continued.
