The Goalkeeper's Fear of the Dentist

    Newer Older

    Day 197 of 365: I dread going to the dentist. I've put it off for two years because I don't have insurance, and the verdict is root canal treatment. Yikes. It's much cheaper here in Argentina than I thought it'd be, but my dentist's practice looks like it's from the 50s. She's lovely though.

    TOTW: I believe it's one of the lesser known commandments that thou shalt not put off going to the dentist. At least it ought to be.

    I know, nobody will get the obscure title reference.

    the full horror

      I hate going to the dentist more than anything in the world (well, anything except going to the eye doctor--that's #1). Ouch on the root canal. I hope your dentist doesn't use some crazy old torture devices to do that. Good luck, man.

      I need to go to...now that I'm employed and not a starving college student anymore, I actually have dental coverage...and I've got a huge hole in one of my teeth...but I just can't seem to find the time. Probably because I'm scared.

      Eh, I need to go too. I waited for so long and then had to have 3 root canals, 12 fillings, and some other work as well. II never did go back to get those "other things" done. :P

      Anyway, i love this shot! The tones are just awesome!
