Excuse my French, I have said something that people usually won't want to hear. As in "You have a dentist appointment next week," which is swiftly followed by "Fuck fuck fuck I haven't been flossing." And of course you haven't been flossing. Nobody flosses. It's probably a conspiracy. The dentist will still ask you if you are anyways, and you have no choice but to answer "sometimes."
I went to the dentist today. And no, I haven't been flossing. I could say having things stuck into my mouth by a cute girl is fun, but I would be lying. Flossing may make your gums bleed, but getting them jabbed with their alien prodding devices makes it look like you've been chewing glass. I guess if I did actually floss my gums would be all scarred and bled-out so this wouldn't happen. At least it isn't a week long mouth period like after I got my wisdom teeth out (which I even wrote about while I was still loopy from the pain killers.) I guess the horror stories of what happens when I don't floss aren't strong enough to stop me from forgetting what floss actually is.
Unfortunately after the flossing comes more jabbing, into your teeth, until they find that spot that you thought might have hurt one time but you weren't sure and you didn't want to go to the dentist so you ignored it. And you feel it penetrate the tooth. And you try not to flinch, because you know, they might have missed it. But then they look at those X-Rays that may or may not have not given you tooth cancer or something which created these cavities in the first place, and there's like this one spot with a slightly different shade of grey- that little spot is a cavity. Which is when you say to yourself "I should have flossed."
And for those of you who are wondering, they did find cavities. Don't drink 2 liter bottles of Mt. Dew in one day, kids.
