Rinse and Spit, Please…

18 Nov

Now, open wide…this won’t hurt a bit…

I think today’s activities have prepared me for a future in dentistry. I spent an hour or two down in the bowels of Bushranger, digging out decayed wood from various cavities using a file and a hair dryer (and, yep, it was a real hair dryer I was using).  You think that was bad, it then got worse. 

My next activity was a bit of liposuction on those cavities, when I couldn’t reach all the ‘bad bits’ with my file and hair dryer. Boyd rigged some thin hoses onto the end of a wet/dry vacuum in an attempt to suck out old decay and mud from various holes in Bushranger’s structure. It actually worked pretty well!

I gave up after a couple hours, and retreated to the kitchen to experiment with a new biscotti recipe. Boyd continued on, sucking out various sludge and grime from all sections of Bushranger. He’s a tougher man than I am (obviously!). Anyway, interesting day. 

Tonight, I think we deserve pizza from the Pickwick Pizza Company – yum, we love their thin crust supreme!

    Did it remind you of your days with Randi Sarantos, the orthodontist in town? Who would of thought that your training there would come in handy for this???

      Problem is that all I did at Sarantos’ was brush some pretty nasty teeth and put out the dental tools (and took/developed x-rays – illegally, come to find out, since I was so young). I never did any file work back then. Good thing – it wasn’t much fun! …but, I think the Sarantos experience is what made me think about ‘rinsing and spitting’.

    You’re right, Mom. She will be even better than she was….and she will truly be ours.
