It may be possible that I have done a teeeny weeensy bit of regression....
Or maybe it is just a bit of Mid Life Rebellion
Call it what you may. Tell me what you think!
Monday I am over at the Oral Surgeon's office where they are taking another round of x-rays of my Incredible Erupting & Splitting Wisdom teeth.
Here is the exchange:
Tech: Okay we are going to put you in that head vise over there and once I have stepped away where it is safe I am going to push a button and the arms of the machine are going
Me: Ummmm okay?
Tech: First you need to take everything out of your mouth
Me: (spitting out my chewing tobacco, a big double wad of Bubblicious, couple of rubber bands, a hamster, my tongue, some paper clips, a spit wad I was saving for when I got back to my office and some toe nails (not saying who's))
Tech: And you will need to take off your earrings.
Me: My earrings?
Tech: Yes, your earrings.
Me: ALL of them?
Tech: How many ways do I have to explain that you need to take out all your earrings or they will heat up until your ear lobes catch fire and make your brain boil like a saucepan of oatmeal?
Me: (Whining) But I just got my ears pierced. Again. Do I have to take the new ones out?
(At this point I feel like I should pause to confess that I recently got my ears pierced. Again. So that makes 6 piercings. Buahahhhwahhh... NOT IN BOTH EARS! How crazy is that.... After 3 they are cartilage piercings. I checked. I have 3 in each ear. That is right I AM a bad ass)
Me: (Insert mental picture of Puss In Boots doing his pleading kitty cat face)
Tech: Take. Out. All. Your. Earrings
Of course I forgot to put them back in so I had to re-pierce the new holes later that night.
Did you want to hear about that?
Is this thing on?
