Such a thoughtful dental assistant… as I was sitting in the chair with a mouth full of squishy goo, waiting for it to harden into an impression of my teeth, she asked me of I would like a magazine to read while I waited. I nodded. Then she asked “Is there anything in particular that you like?”
Now, I’m not usually this rude, but for some unfathomable reason, I chose to respond to her considerate question with nothing more than an incredulous, somewhat blank stare.
Thankfully, after an awkward silence, another assistant tactfully pointed out that “She can’t exactly answer you right now…”
After they left the room, I indulged in a hearty laugh – at least, as hearty as I could manage without opening my mouth!
