So this was funny-weird at the dentist.

The dental hygienist comes in and does the cleaning.

Ultrasonic cleaner, scraping, polishing, flossing, rinse — all sort of routine.

Next the dentist comes in — looks this side, that side, bite, bite again, looks some more.

Then sort of out of the blue, the dentist goes to me:

“You got some nice chompers!”

Ah, never quite heard anyone say that before or quite the way this dentist said it.

Uh, a little strange sounding and feeling a little uncomfortable.

I go out and tell me wife about this weird thing.

And I start laughing and going…

“Doctor, you got some nice chompers there too!”

Somehow the way I said it, we both cracked up laughing.

I’ll never think of going to get my teeth cleaned at the dentist quite the same way again. ;-)
