At the dentist

The dentist was shocked by my extensive non-care of teeth: I was shocked by her intensive care of my teeth. When I guessed this mutual shock was almost over, she nonchalantly declared, “it’s about halfway done. Now it will hurt a little.”

“Half…”
“Hurt…”
“A little…”

Oh believe me please. I don’t need to be reminded of a wide range of meanings that those little words can deliver. I have already witnessed so many awkward, embarrassing, sorry moments engendered by the violence of vague language.

Yes, my body got stiff and my mind furiously sought some of the most pleasant and horrible moments that can counter the drilling strike. But I didn’t lose my dignity and kept my mouth wide open all the way.

Today’s lesson:
Now I need that persistence to take care of my teeth!
