New miserable experience

This morning I found myself supine in a dentist’s chair, having the backs of my lower front teeth scraped by that long pointy tartar-scraping thing while Fox News blared on a flatscreen TV by my side and Styx’s song “Babe” was being piped through the office sound system.  It was so profoundly and deeply unpleasant in so many ways as to be almost sublime.

I can’t wait to go back again for my next semiannual checkup.  I hope that they’ll have Styx’s “Come Sail Away” in the speakers next time, which, like so much of Styx’s work, goes really well with teeth-scraping devices and oral-maxillofacial pain.
