All About Eva and the Dumb Doctor
My search for the right person to ease my pain ended when I found Eva - a masseuse. She is a little Chinese woman whose features belie the power that emanates from her fingertips. She is little and yet so powerful. She kneaded the knots out of my back and shoulders and neck. I have never felt so good after an hour.
It was funny too. It was my first time to have a little Chinese woman walk all over my back and I liked it. I have already scheduled (in my head) my next session. Glad I found that little place.
And I finally found time to visit my dentist. I am aware of how important our dental health is but going to the dentist is not such a fun experience. In the past years though I have made peace with going to the dentist especially since all I need are regular cleaning.
So today I went to see her. I have been feeling yucky about my gums and wanted to raise this point to her even though my appointment is for cleaning. She gave me x-rays too, it has been a year since the last one. And there I found out I have a cavity. Oh no! I haven't had one in over 20 years. I must have been neglecting my flossing.
Anyway, while I was in the chair before my dentist could clean my teeth, I told her to give me a referral to a gum doctor. Her eyes got big and was confused? She asked, why and before I could answer her she added she needed to treat me first.
When I got the chance to reply I said, I needed the referral coz my gum hurts. She bursts out laughing saying she heard me say DUMB DOCTOR the first time, hence her confused reaction.
My dentist is a hoot.
