It is possible that the dentist read my blog post, "The Dental Games," and played a variant of the classic "Smack your plan in the face opening."
After my teeth were cleaned and I was mentally preparing my assault my dentist pulled a fast one. To my frustrated surprise my dentist sent his henchman and assistant dentist Dr.Josephine Kevorkian to check my teeth. She is a woman of action, an intimidating mixture of dentist, enforcer, and executioner, who uses a riding crop to examine molars and a monocle to read x-rays.
With an air of satisfaction, and a terrifying sense of dominance she said "you need a filling and maybe a better attitude, Mr. Funny Guy." Oddly, I have found over the years when people call me funny guy they don't mean it as a compliment.
So, I said ok, scheduled my appointment, thanked them all, and went on my way. There is always next time.
