I Said Something Cool Today

March 15, 2017

Today, I had a dental appointment.

During the course of the appointment, I asked my dentist if I could use a mirror to see what he was doing since he’d finally worked out a way for me to get at the interdental (in between) spaces of the front teeth of my bottom jaw. For various reasons, that’s been pretty much impossible for years, and it’s become something of a windmill for both of us to tilt at.

Indeed, my dentist has previously excused me from flossing those teeth because it just doesn’t work. It’s an exercise in frustration and futility, even for him, and if he can’t get floss to work, then there’s no way that I’ll be able to.

Today, however, he finally found something that could work, and I was eager to see what he was doing. He was happy to give me a mirror, but he warned me that I would be seeing some blood due to the sensitivity of the gums in that area (something that doesn’t surprise me due to the aforementioned inability to get at those interdental spaces).

I looked him straight in the eye and said, “Don’t worry. I’ve seen my own blood before.”

My dentist and his assistant kind of just looked at me for a second before I realised what I’d said. It took me a moment to realise how dire but awesome that sounded. And it’s true. I have seen my own blood before. Heck, when I had dental surgery a while back to extract some teeth, I woke up with a mouth full of blood and spent the next week or so dealing with the aftermath of having several teeth extracted at once.

Nevertheless, I managed to say something cool during my dental appointment.

P. S. I also found out that I might be a mutant. My power? I may have an extra wisdom tooth. Why couldn’t I have gotten awesome regeneration or plasma beams from my eyes instead?
