Yesterday was waundry day. Since the waundrymat is acwoss fwom the dennis office and I wah having some compwications, I wawked oer to ha hi wook at my mou.
Ok, you got that so far??? I’ll type normal for a moment or two…
I noticed a nasty looking “thing” where my tooth had been and I didn’t like the looks of it so thought I better have it checked out.
Dan and I got the laundry going and I did walk across to the dentists office and asked if I could be seen by either him or a hygienist. 3 minutes later I was in a chair and the dentist was looking in my mouth.
He called the nasty looking thing by name and explained that since I was taking such good care of my extraction site, it had formed tissue alongside/over the blood clot and all he needed to do was get the scissors and cut it off. It didn’t take long and I didn’t even really feel it, but it made everything bleed again.
So, once more, my mouth was stuffed with gauze.
I walked back over to the Laundromat where Dan was waiting. He said “You weren’t gone long! Were they busy?”
I said “Tha wah one wady in the wobby”.
He said “what?”
I replied, a bit louder and with as much emphasis as I could without spitting out my cud, “tha wah one wady in the wobby!!”
He said “OH, there are a lot of cars there so I thought they might be weally, I mean REALLY busy.”
said “Aww the wooms were fuww”.
By then he was laughing at me so I had to laugh which didn’t help my gauze stay put. I said to him “I wuv you becau you make me waugh”
We both got a good waugh over the whole thing. Dan waughed till his bwue eyes had tears in them. People, all Mexicans, looked at us like we were nuts. Here I am with a cud in my mouth making me look like I’m storing nuts for winter and sounding like Elmer Fudd (“Be vewwy, vewwy quiet. I’m hunting wabbits!”)and both of us laughing like idiots.
As a side note, we washed the flannel sheets yesterday and PUT THEM AWAY!!!! We are back to regular sheets on the bed!!! The weather is NICE!!! It is beautiful!!!! HOOO-----RAY!!!!!!
