Whew, I am glad that is over, my 6 month cleaning and checkup at the dentist. I really hate going to the dentist. My mouth always hurts for a week afterwards.
You all know I love to people watch. When Jim was in the hospital I helped to entertain myself and Jim by watching people and creating a scenario for them.
My appointment this morning was at 8 AM and the office was full already. One couple (probably mid 80s came in and sat down. Her name was Mary. She had on tan slacks, a coral colored sweater and beige what I call old lady shoes and red dyed hair just a shade lighter than I Love Lucy. As stated before, I hate going to the dentist. I was sitting across from Mary and her husband. He asked her if she had finished making the spinach balls last night. She told him no, as her shoulder was hurting (having arthritis in my shoulders so bad I could relate to that.} Then he asked if she stayed warm in bed last night. She muttered something and he said what? Then very loudly she said I already told you. By now I was smiling and my mind wasn’t thinking about Melinda (hygienist's name) poking her hands in my mouth.
Speaking of Melinda, I had told her before that her name was very old. My grandmother’s name was Nancy Melinda. If I had been conscious after my daughter was born I would have named her Melinda instead of Marcia as I think Melinda is a beautiful name. Jim actually named our daughter as I was pretty sick with toxemia after my daughter’s birth. To this day I have always thought Marcia was named after one of Jim’s old girl friends. LOL!!
And now back to the old couple. They were so cute together and it made me miss Jim so much as he was so good to go to doctor visits with me. One thing puzzles me though, what in the world are spinach balls??
After my appointment I went to Aldi’s and then out to the grand opening of a new bank in town to see if I wanted to put some of my vast fortune in their bank. HA!!!! They are very nice!
I hope you all have a good day. Stay safe and be happy!!
