Start Of A Day

January 22nd, 2010 | Tags:

It’s been storming these days. I had a dental appt early in the morning yesterday. So I got up at 7:30am, which is considered very (I mean VERY) early for me. Drove slowly on highway for about 40 minutes, and got to the doctor’s office on time.

A young nurse I never saw before greeted me and took me to a room. The thing I like about dental doctor’s offices is that they all have large windows. But it was still raining heavily outside and I couldn’t see much out there. My jacket was all soaked just for walking few steps in the rain, never to mention my hair — didn’t have time to wash them this morning. Oh my gosh, forgot to use some lotion: now my skin is so dry that I can feel them tearing apart on my face. Now I can totally picture myself lying on the chair with my face under the spot light, and the dentist and nurse getting a close look at my dry aging skin. Wait a minute, where’s my favorite nurse? Last time while walking me outside she told me she’s been having some problems with her boss (the dentist). Did they fire her? Oh no, I hope not. She’s a very amiable person. I felt down. What a gloomy morning to start a day.

“Hey, nice to see you again!” A voice from behind. I turned around, and she was, my favorite dental assistant (though I can never remember her name).

“How are you doing?”

“Good, good. Now we are going to take an X-ray. You can take off all your jewelry.”

“Oh, I wish I have any of those.” We both burst into laughter.

Suddenly I felt better. Then I lied down in the chair with my eyes closed. Totally forgot about my dry skin, I was lost in the Roxette coming from the radio.

Not a bad start of a day.
