. . . for Lauren and Lauren: I'd rather

July 15, 2012

I'd rather

shirt, skirt & shoes: target

First of all please ignore our incredibly dead grass, as well as my bra strap - opps.

As I mentioned last week in my fears post, I am afraid of the dentist.
I even take pretty good care of my teeth, but they don't care and always have some sort of problem every time I go.
I should be too embarrassed to admit this but once I even had 8 cavaties at one time.

Well the dreaded time has come and I will be going to to the dentist on Friday.

Due to the sad fact that I think about it a lot, here is a list of
things I'd rather do than go to the dentist:


Pull the weeds in my parents' pasture in the middle of summer with mosquitos surronding me. 

Go to the gynecologist multiple times.

Listen to Carol of the Bells on repeat all. day. long.

Vacuum my stairs every day for two weeks. 

Go to work on a Saturday.

Play chess for many hours. 

Eat a jar of olives.

Watch 4 episodes of South Park.

Doubtful, but am hoping for a good report on Friday.

Cute outfit! And I know what you mean. My dentist retired and I loved him. He's been my dentist since I was around 5 years old. I'm afraid to find a new one!

I go every 6 months and last year I had 3 cavities in one visit. I don't understand how they didn't see them 6 months earlier. The first cavities I'd ever had. That was a fun bill to pay.

Oh dear, good luck with the dentist! I hope they give you some silly gas to make it easier! And I LOVE olives, so I would really enjoy doing that one :)

Hahahahaha you're hilarious! I sound about the same... h-a-t-e the dentist, they always get mad at you for not cleaning/flossing properly... Um, I'm not a dentist. That's why I pay you to do it. Hmph. Good luck!

Alana Christine said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'm sorry you've had such bad experience with dentists! I would definitely choose a dentist over gyno! lol

Brittany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ocean Dreams said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Aww, I'm so sorry that you have to go to the dentist, they really are not that much fun so I'm sorry! Hang in there and you should treat yourself after. ;)

Oh man...I'm not fond of the dentist, but out of all of those options...I'd have to pick dentist! Hope it goes well!

Laura said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I'd hate to be a dentist. No one likes them!! Last time I went I had a cavity and my husband was appalled! He said, "Adults don't get cavities, only children have them." He was absolutely serious. Not joking at all. Wow.

Megan said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ugh, I'm with you, I hate going to the dentist too! (But I love this outfit). However, the gynecologist is way worse in my opinion!! Ick.

TheTinyHeart said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I don't like going to the dentist either and I don't even have any cavities! I'm with Megan though, I'd rather go to any doctor but the gynecologist!

Always Maylee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha, I'm right there with you. There are so many things I'd rather do than go to the dentist, and I always try to avoid them for as long as possible, which really just makes the visit worst. It's a vicious cycle that I can't get out of.

At least you will be looking adorable while going to the dentist! :)

xo, Yi-chia

I'm sorry you're so dreading it :-( I know how you feel, I hate the dentist too! I always have said I would much rather have an appointment at the gynecologist than the dentist, and people think I'm crazy. But it's so true! haha...I am actually way past due for a dentist appointment, but I'm really dragging my feet about scheduling one. Good luck on Friday!
