So this is how you people live...

After 32 years of smug self-satisfaction, I finally joined the cavity club. I have based my entire superiority complex on the fact that my teeth were unmarred by fillings. But the streak came to an end this week. Sigh.... Now what? What's the point of oral hygiene if not perfection? Why floss or brush? I now know the sound of the drill, the horrid lights of the torture chair, and have been reduced to a post-procedure drooling idiot. On the walk home, people stopped to give me money thinking I was a half-wit. Thanksgiving? Thanks for nothing, teeth.
