small stone: january 20th

To tell the truth,

Dr. of Tooth,

it’s the horrible sucking sounds

and the scrapingscrapingscrapingscraping

and the drill in the next room (glad I’m not that guy)

and the needle-sharp water thingy that makes my gums bleed

and my shoulders’ need for residing somewhere up around my ears

in anticipatory fear of probing latex fingers not-so-tickling my ivories.

Nothing personal.
Really.

    Yes! You’ve expressed it so well. I’m going to have to tell my dentist about “tickling my ivories.”

  2. You must go to my dentist! ;)

    Seriously, this is great. Precise, real, and funny.
