I love my dentist ^_^

It’s toothday  Tuesday.  The mysterious chipping of my front tooth has been remedied, but the mystery of how it happened may never be known.

If I run into Scooby Doo, I don’t even think it’s worth putting him on the case.  I have other mysteries he can put those meddling kids on.

I love my dentist!  And his assistant Laura.

We always have the nicest chats “Hi friend!” She says as I enter ‘the’ room.

Worst part of the whole procedure was what I called ‘the sandpaper shoelace’  They called it floss.  They didn’t have it in between their teeth.  I’m pretty sure my identification of the item was the correct one.

Still numb, but couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

Do not be afraid – GO to your dentist.  Do it.  And if you already do – then go hug your dentist.

“Here’s smiling at you kids”   (yes, I said that in my head with a Humphrey Bogart Casablanca voice as I typed)

Debauchery Soup (Okay, everything but soup)

This weekend was pure culinary debauchery.  I ate a ridiculous amount of food.

Somehow this was all that was left of 2 dozen fresh baked cookies (Cranberry white chocolate and chocolate chunk in case you’re wondering)

Yeah, that would make 19 that I consumed yesterday.  I do not know how.  I just know that the proof is in the picture.  (I ate one this morning if you’re doing the math and not coming up with 19)

I also had a healthy baked potato for lunch.  Albeit, it was hidden under sour cream, cheese, red bell peppers, spring onions and Southwest chicken pieces.

I did take time to play with the food a little before indulging.  These were my ‘left over veggie flower’ photos:

It didn’t stop there.  I was still hungry after my potato.  So I tried for healthy:

Then skipped to unhealthy and had two bowls of this fun cereal.  (Let me tell you, they do NOT skimp on the marshmallows!)

This comfort eating has to stop.

And it has for now … as I noticed that between the time I brushed my teeth this morning, and approximately 1:00 pm, I had broken my front tooth!!

I don’t bite down on my front teeth – so I have no CLUE how I did it.  But done it is.

I feel like I look like this:

But it really looks like this:

See – the tooth above the ‘S’.

Ug!  So, back to the dentist tomorrow.

Anyway, back to food.

I’m known around the office for being thin, yet always eating.  So it was no surprise when a realtor came to me to ask about a plate of cookies that mysteriously appeared on her desk with an illegible thank-you card.

Surely she didn’t think I left them??  A) I would never leave cookies unattended and B) I would never part with cookies.

I’m leaving you a treat – it would be something wrapped and sealed so tight I couldn’t be tempted to get into it.

I was however, able to make a positive ID for her on what the hand that was holding said plate of cookies looked like.

Hey, if cookies are walking by the office, my radar goes off.  I could also confirm that the cookies were shaded by a hat on the head of unidentified cookie bearer and that the delivery occurred on Friday afternoon.

I’m so helpful.

If ever called to help police as a witness, their suspect better have been holding food.

Tonight, I fast.

It’s not going to be hard … as I brought a banana for breakfast – cheese, salad and turkey sandwich and tortilla chips for lunch, and then my boss announced he’d brought chili for us.  Score!

This is my actual stomach – and it is grateful.  But it had better not get used to such feeding frenzies.

I’m done!

Wait … would you look at the dogs food!!!
