Is it bad if I call all my posts: "Well, this is awkward??"
I kissed the dentist. Keep your shirt on, F was with me. I'm sorry I have been locked in the house with a scabby face for an entire week and she was my first human contact outside of my immediate family. I was so frustrated by having the dental equipment in my mouth (that just sounds wrong in this context, I know) that when I was free and clear I couldn't stop talking. I fear that I said crazy things. The dentist is one of F's English students as is one of her colleagues and so she peppered her speech with cute English words and a few idiomatic phrases. She had killer green eyeliner. Among the weirdest of the weirdly weird things I did during those forty five minutes of chatty dental cleaning, is the fact that I outed F for not flossing regularly. He got so pissed he turned purple. Who could blame him really? But I like to think that his gums will thank me one day. Then at the very end the dentist lady reached across her reception desk to limply shake my hand. I felt that it was such an unsatisfying way to end my first human contact in seven days that I inserted myself behind the desk with her and said, Dai, ti do un bacino and kissed her on both cheeks. She looked kind of upset, actually. Then I skipped off hoping that what had just happened had not really just happened and that nothing worse would happen, and that is when F dropped the heavy metal coat hanger with our coats on the stone floor causing a huge and startling boom which scared the bejeezus out of all the other patients in the waiting room. Yup, I need to get out more.
