Lying through my teeth...

There are so many things I could tell you about.

The haircut I gave myself.

The puppies which were running across the highway and were saved by eight strangers.

My poor resistance to girl scout cookies which are stacked in my house.

I am not going to do any of those things. Instead I am going to do a years worth of flossing in one night, because tomorrow I have a dental cleaning and I am determined to not get the lecture about flossing.

So that's what I am doing. I am flossing to fool my dentist.

In February this is about as exciting as life gets.

I've found it helpful to say to the hygienist, "Please do not scold me about flossing. It makes me feel bad." Where are my Girl Scout cookies? Thank you for reminding me.

Bwahaha! I've got that lecture coming up next month... Fun times.

So feeling you on the GS cookies; I'm ashamed about the number of boxes I've got sitting in my kitchen. Well, actually, no I'm not.

I always start flossing in earnest about 3 weeks before the yearly exam. Fools them every time!

thought I was the only one in the world who got the floss lecture! I'm glad to know I've got company. What did you decide to do with your hair? Tell Michael that I appreciate his offer to help me with my blog and Wordpress but I think blogger is more my speed. One of these days I'll write you to tell you about the birth of this baby. You will be the first since you were the very first person I wrote to in Blogland. Thanks for your support. Terri

Oh the flossing lectures! But come to think of it, it's all for our benefit. Have you ever thought of the food you eat every day? And some of them stuck between our teeth? That's gross, right? Then imagine if you don't floss, and you wait for 6 months before you have it cleaned by your dentist. God knows, how much bacteria have built up by that time, and cavities have already been killing your teeth. So, happy flossing my dear!
