A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
We never quite no what surprise life might have in store for us, do we?
I broke a front tooth somehow some time ago, in February, not long before Covid 19 arrived with all of its ensuing restrictions. I had been waiting for insurance approval for the work and of course, due to the prevailing circumstances, the work could not be done.
However, with things opening up in June, I had a dental appointment booked for this morning, duly noted, or so I thought, according to my iPhone. I got up earlier than usual just so I could be a little early for a change.
Well, turns out that I went to my dentist appointment an HOUR too early! EEEEKS!!!! I did not want to do the 15 minute drive back into my own part of town, only to have to drive back out again just a bit later. There was nothing much open to pass the time in these Covid 19 days….so….I decided to stay put.
The the receptionist asked me if I would like to use the massage chair. “For an hour?” I asked, incredulous. She said, “Sure, if you want….”
She took me in through the reception office to a room in the back to show me. Well, there I was in this little room with a remote and a chair that pummeled, pushed and squeezed me wonderfully from head to foot basically! For as long as I wanted! What a treat!
Woah! I tried hard not to cry out in pleasure (haha!) as the mechanisms of the massage chair found all the tender spots and did the work on them. I sure didn’t want everyone out there thinking I was having much too much of a good time!
I so WANT one of these!!!!!
I thanked the receptionist after and she said, “Oh, any time you want to use it, it’s there.” Really? It could become my “go to” place! Haha!
Now I am pretty sure, when I think about it, that I have seen the dentist go in there. I thought maybe for a snack, or a drink. Haha! He probably gets a massage for a few minutes so that he can continue to bend over his next patient and do his job more efficiently!
My appointment took over a hour and the majority of that time, it seemed, I was sitting there with one mouthful after another of some different moulding substance (guck) to take imprints for the new tooth. Not pleasant…..but apparently necessary!
However, I came home happier with a plastic tooth inserted, and a better smile! Now to wait for the new tooth to come in and my next appointment to install it!
I must endeavour to be REAL early for ALL my appointments in future. 😉 😛
