Dentists, etc

I went to the dentist today. Today I went in for a crowning but since I lost my crown months ago and didn't go in because I didn't have time, my teeth got too close and I needed a new one fitted. It took a lot longer but I didn't have to be drugged up. I used to love this guy because his staff didn't chatter at me. Today I wasn't doped upand what did they do? "You seem content and not needing the drugs to relax you! blah-blah-blah-yakkitty-yakkitty-yak." It's a sentence to lie in that damned chair and have these lonely people trying to be my friend. I just want to lay there and breathe. Why is that so wrong? Next time I go in I am going to wear a fake hearing aid and just say it's not working. I'm paying for the damned visit! Hmph!

My waist is down to 25" in the corset. It gets smaller each day-- but without it' it's about 30. The reduction that is happening so fast is telling me that my abdominal muscles are weak but not fat. (I say this as I have attacked a box of Girl Scout Tagalongs! Om-om-om.) I wear modest clothes-- my dresses nornally go to mid calf. My tops are a little looser. When I corset at the house I normally wear a tank top tunic over tight pants, then put my dress on. Today I noticed that I am getting small because I was wearing the pants and tunic and an over jacket. I like this and I like how fast it's happening. I am still wearing fro three hours at a time.

I liked my old dentist. Why is weight/waist/hip etc, reduction so important for a woman? Men don't really lose weight. Haven't you seen those barrel stomached men on the beach?

Great topic, Emp! I'm on it!

Instead of a hearing aid, why not just smile and say something like, "I'm sorry, but I was hoping to quietly meditate through this"?

I think it's generally better to be able to say what you want.

Last time I tried that a lady said she was sorry, but was I having a bad day. She was pretty determined but you are correct. I can always get up and leave rather than have to find a place that sells dummy aids!
