Dental HighScream


I felt really foolish sitting in the dentist’s chair with the pink paper bib thing around my neck

… especially after they told me I wasn’t going to get a discount for bringing my own.


note: I like the dentist who does all the tooth drilling and grinding. I figure, either I am a masochist or she’s the only female dentist there.

double note: do not drink blue kool-aid before going to the dentist.

triple note:teeth and trees are very similar; they both are made of wood.

Today #257

Everything has become much clearer to me today: I washed my windows.


underfoot but not really in the way


In day to day life I don’t often notice my footprints.

Probably because I wear shoes most of the time.

Shoeprints could be anyone’s shoeprints.


At the beach I’m always fascinated by my footprints.

I think most people are.

They are uniquely yours.


Footprints are like personal breadcrumbs showing you where you’ve been.

I guess what I’m trying to say is …

it must suck to be a fish.


note: everyone makes copies of their hands with photocopiers … never their feet … it’s a mystery.

double note: I bet most fish don’t know where the hell they are, where they’ve been, or where they are going.  I know some people like that.

triple note: fish don’t have feet because they don’t have shoe stores … probably.

quadruple note: shouldn’t it be “feetprints” … or is this just another of those “toothbrush” scenarios.


notes to myself #49

Your feet smell for periods of time when you get older. Hey! it’s not my fault!

A New Toothbrush

I bought a *new toothbrush yesterday.

I don’t know how often you are suppose to, but I usually buy one when I get the sneaky feeling that I’m just sticking a plastic thing in my mouth a few times a day out of habit more than hygiene.

I stood in the store aisle debating the pros and cons of each type before picking exactly the same model I always get.
I like green handled ones: I mentally associate them with freshness, mintiness, and how effective advertising really is.

I brush my teeth longer with a new toothbrush. Maybe I’m breaking it in … or enjoying all those new bristles … or just introducing it to all my teeth.
Someone should do a study about this; not me though, it sounds kind of boring.

I should probably just buy 10 toothbrushes at a time, but I don’t want to get stuck with obsolete stuff if there is a big advance in toothbrush technology.

* new toothbrush: I don’t know why I have to clarify that it is new, but I do.

note: Can you buy false teeth for combs?

double note: Bad drivers are car dentists.

triple note: Some people should practice better aural hygiene. I SAID,  “SOME PEOPLE SHOULD PRACTICE BETTER AURAL HYGIENE”.

quadruple note: I know there is something funny about Moral Hygiene, but I can’t quite put my finger on it … and if I do, I will wash my hands afterwards.

quintuple note: Burt Reynolds was a pro and a con in The Longest Yard.
