Son, be a dennntiiiiist!

When I lived in Pittsburgh, I had the great good fortune of having

THE BEST DENTIST IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

Cute? Check. In a very wholesome, big-white-teeth kind of way.

Novocaine? Check. Lots. Used it with abandon...I'd be drooling for hours, but felt no pain.

Virtual Reality Glasses. Check. Honest-to-goodness movie watching while the drills were going...chuckling at the antics of Steve Martin and Michael Caine while having cavities filled. The bestest, most awesome kind of dentistry ever.

But we moved out of Pittsburgh years ago.

And my teeth have been suffering.

So I went to a new dentist. And he is a lovely, lovely guy.

Cute? Check. In a very wholesome, big-white-teeth kind of way. And he's a giant - honestly eight feet tall.

Novocaine? Check. Lots. Used it with abandon... drooling for hours, but no pain. Yay!

Virtual reality goggles? No. But I'm working on him.

But I've seen him three times in as many weeks. It's like I broke the seal, and now I must run to the dentist as often as possible.

Who knows? Maybe if my mouth ever stops aching, I'll bake a batch of brownies to say thanks.

Double-chocolate brownies.

Double chocolate caramel toffee brownies.

...and then I'll hit 'em with the virtual reality goggles when they're all sugared up. It's a evil plan, but betcha it works....
