Dental woes

Well, last Monday [edit: it was actually Thursday] I had a dental appointment where I had to have a filling replaced; I was also told I had decay on the root of the tooth. (The end is near.)

But, surprisingly, I was admonished for taking selfies in the dentist chair; I've been taking selfies in the dentist chair since there was even a word for them! It's my unbearable curiosity that makes me do it; plus, I always carry a camera on me, so the temptation is just too great. Here's what I looked like Monday; they used a full dental-dam setup and everything:

The student who was working on me—this was NYU dental—came back into the room and said, "You're not allowed to take pictures in here; please delete these pictures."

I mumbled that I'd do it after, since we were in the middle of a procedure, after all. When she was out of the room again, I switched memory cards on my camera. Sure, I understand the liability issues, and that this is student work being photographed, but I've never had any trouble about this before—not even at Columbia dental.

Seriously, I may have found my Halloween costume for this year; it's definitely scary enough!
