What you don’t want to hear your dentist say, as he’s preparing to do a root canal procedure and he accidentally knocks the tray of implements on the floor.
Opps, so sorry about that, I am having such a bad day!
Actually as root canal treatments go, it was a piece of of sugar free cake, as he had knocked out the infection in the tooth and put a temporary dressing in it two days before I went on holiday. Afterwards we had a laugh about his choice of words, he said it was just as well I was a calm patient, little does he know I get plenty of practice at appearing calm when nothing is further from the truth.
Also on my travels today I saw a young women, about twenty something I suppose, with a butterfly (wing span of about 4 inches) tattooed across her throat; how attractive is that going to look when she is about sixty and somewhat more wrinkled and saggy than she is now? I could never have a tattoo, I can’t even chose a stair carpet that I am not bored of before it has worn out; let alone something ‘decorative’ and indelible, that I have to spend the rest of my life with.
On the subject of butterflies, does anyone know what species this is? spotted in Devon, the wings were white on the outside and this lovely ‘Persil’ blue/white on the inside, very pretty.
