(not me, but a cute model displaying my level of trepidation about going to my dentist,
and me exactly, if i was a goat with braces, tiny horns, and yellowing teeth.)
i finally got the call i’d been fearing for months
my dentist was beginning to reschedule appointments
cancelled due to coivd
and i was on the list!
i showed up
with gritted teeth and edgy nerves
as every dental visit begins for me
as we went through all of the safety protocol
leading up to my virus-abbreviated visit
i realized there could be worse things
still didn’t relax
until it was over
but at least
i was healthy.
had a very kind dentist.
and had teeth.
and no braces.
and no horns.
“before I got into rock n’ roll, I was going to be a dentist.”
