Surprise at the Dentist
Posted Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 8:16 PM

So today I finally found time to get my teeth cleaned and a check up at the dentist. Now normally I stick pretty close to my twice a year visit, but as some of you know I have spent over a year providing care for my family, and well it just hasn't fit in to my schedule since 2009.

So today I fixed that. The dentist came in and saw I was reading about macrobiotics (getting it straight for when mom comes) and he commented that he wasn't surprised to see I ate healthy and probably didn't need to ask me the questions about smoking, tobacco, sodas, etc... I said nope, don't use. A comment was made on my healthy hair, skin and teeth. Very Happy

By the time I saw the hygenist (sp?) she saw the book and we started talking. Then she said she was familar with the Phyicians responsible commitee something or other, and about a kickstart! So I naturally started in about Dr. Barnard, PCRM, 21-day kickstart, Dr. McDougall, etc.... such a small world!

I encouraged her to join us here on the forum. She also said she really enjoys the recipes.

So all in all, it was THE best dental ever! My teeth were in terrific shape, I got compliments on looking healthy and got to talk to someone who didn't roll their eyes or verbally attack when discussing the way I eat! Smile

My self confidence isn't all that hot, so, yes it was in unchartered territory for me.

I like the sound of that! Super Hero... I actually have a pattern for a long, beautiful velvet cape, nice shade of green. I could sneak into the village and deliver organic, whole foods. I am liking this!

A nice couple has gone to their friends' wedding and set the DVR to record the Ellen De Generes show. But just as the shows about to start, the DVR jams. Sounds like a job for.........Plant-Based Woman.

Eek! That would require some knowledge of things electronic! I am pleased when my computer and cell phone work properly!

I was thinking of a "gentle" B&E (breaking and entering or maybe just entering...) go in and do a fridge, freezer and cupboard makeover. When the unsuspecting family returns to their kitchen, they find no animal products only fresh whole, organic foods with a new cookbook or 2?? Possbily a meal ready to eat?

Also, I think a green cape is quite the thing because it is a "geen makeover". Thoughts? I could use a faithful sidekick Theodore, or, I am willing to be the side kick but I get a green cape!

I love it Oceandog. You'll be Plant-Based Woman with a green cape and I'll be your sidekick.

My quirk is that I only help you save the world until 6.00pm each day. After that you're on your own. My name will be......you guessed it: Markbitt Man.
