I Must Have My Share in the Conversation....

So I didn't exactly feel like Lady Cathrine D'Bourgh sitting back at the dentist after two huge shots and two hours of dental work, but that sentence did cross my mind a couple times. It can be difficult for a somewhat chatty person like me to sit there in silence while the Dr. and assistant go back and forth on politics, history, recent local events, and even places to which I have traveled . I made a mental note to refer this book, mention this event, etc, as soon as I regained the capacity to speak. But you know how it is. By the time you are upright and rinsed out everyone has moved on to another room and another conversation.
Even worse are the questions they ask you that you can't begin to answer with the suction tube there and a sharp plasic thing inexplicably shoved over here.....
You know what I mean?


  1. This totally makes me laugh. I often think in movie lines and especially Austen movie lines. But I just picked up the book "Austenland" by Shannon Hale, and the main character's mind think is always on Pride and Prejudice.

  2. I enjoyed my visit to your blog!! Very well done.

  3. That's so true! It drives me crazy when the dentist asks me questions while his hands are in my mouth! Plus the last time that happened it was a follow up appointment and he asked all of the same questions as he had at the previous appointment. The first time we saw him he asked us where we were married and who married us, and then because he knew the man he told us a story about the last time he'd talked to him, so then on my follow up appointment he's standing over me prodding around in my mouth and asking me the same exact questions and then he told the same exact story! I don't get annoyed easily, but I was sooo frustrated, we never went back to him again, although, there were other, better reasons for that.

  4. I didn't realize Ramona was your sister! You are both beautiful!

    Your blog is adorable. I will definitely return.
