Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

Dentist poll

You may notice I have a poll on the right about the dentist. I went to the dentist on Tuesday this week and was talking with my totally hot dentist (remind me to tell you about the time 13 years ago when we were both single . . .) about how most of his patients aren't terribly happy to see him. Apparently I am the freakazoid exception - I love going to the dentist! I love getting my teeth cleaned and that great feeling afterward of having a perfectly immaculate mouth. I love having them tell me what a good job I do at flossing and brushing. I love getting the little bag of dental swag (toothbrush, toothpaste, little thing of floss that fits perfectly in my purse, coupons for other stuff). I see no downside to the dentist.

But I know that most people don't agree. I know that some have had dental nightmares (root canals, teeth pulled, etc.). My own sister inherited my dad's bad teeth and has had problem after problem. I was extremely lucky to inherit mom's great teeth. I had a couple fillings as a kid and had to have braces for 2 years (with attractive headgear!) and wear retainers for 4 more years, but that's the extent of my bad dental experiences. Well, I had my wisdom teeth out too, but that wasn't even too bad compared to others' experiences (even though I had 7 wisdom teeth - extra teeth run in the family).

So what is your take on dental visits? Answer in my poll to the right. Feel free to elaborate in the comments here.

I can't say that I love the dentist, but I can say that I love the fact that I am the only one in my family with hard teeth. (I had two cavities when I was a kid... and nothing more... knock on wood.) I know it's sinister of me, but stories of painful dentist visits are glorious when you haven't had the experience yourself. C;P

I also don't mind going to the dentist no cavities, root canals, none of that stuff. I also never had braces or retainers and only ever had 2 wisdom teeth... Now if I could just find a hot dentist I'd love it!

Patient in Chair: I've heard that dentists have the highest suicide rate compared to other professionals. . . Why is that?

Dentist: Have you checked your breath recently?

Patient in Chair: Take a little off the back, a little off the sides, and a lot off the top.

Dentist: I'm your dentist, not your barber.

Patient: In that case, just a light trim all around.

Dentists need humor and so do their patients. \\

I never thought that I would admit this, but... I love the smell and feel of the dentist's gloved hands in my mouth. I'm pretty normal otherwise.

I have had my share of dental nightmares ove the years. My recent issue is that my most favorite dentist ever has left the practice. The one that rests her tit on your shoulder when she works on your teeth and you must concentrate not to expose your boner.

Good Sunday afternoon the 16th to you Bunny ! How are you doing ?

I thought I left a comment the other day... The dentist doesn't bug me, BUT I also get my teeth sonic cleaned every 3 months, which doesn't hurt as much....

Thank you for commenting on my Mhmmm Yes erotica blog, b.t.w. -- 4 times since August 1st !

You are a dear.

I left you a link in today's 'thank-you's.
