Site Meter Vamps and Scamps: Love/Hate

Thursday, July 13, 2006


You know one thing that I really... really...really hate?

Going to the dentist. Now it's nothing personal against the dentist or the techs...just going there, having my teeth cleaned...I hate it.

I know there are plenty of others out there who feel the same way. There might be the odd creature that doesn't mind it or enjoys it. Enjoys it. *confusion*

On the flip side, hey, you only have to go every once in a while and if you take decent care of your teeth, it's not a big deal, right? Me, I have several cavities I have to have fixed, but since I haven't been in oh... eight years, easy, I shouldn't complain, right?

There are just so many more things I'd rather do. Cutting the grass would be better. Going to the OB/GYN... marginally better. So many things that are better.

Just out of sheer curiousity...what three things do you hate to do? What three things do you love to do?


Eye Doctor
Cleaning the toilets


Playing with my kids.
Taking pictures of said kids with their dad.

And the really cool thing about the writing... *G* I get paid. Not everybody gets paid to do what they love. So I guess I shouldn't complain overmuch about a measly trip to the dentist. But I will...

Cleaning in general
Filling the car with gas
Shopping for shoes


Going to the dentist (yes, even though I usually need lots of work. I love my dentist. Hated the one I went to when I was younger)
Buying new books
SPending time with my husband
Cooking/baking (most of the time)

Shi, I'll take the dentist ANY day over the OB/GYN. I'll take the dentist over any other doctor really. If I never had to go see a doctor again, I'd be soooo happy. But the dentist is ok.

I've never minded going to the dentist. I'm not sure why. I don't necessarily love it, though I think I did as a kid (because I got to choose a toy when the cleaning was done LOL). I didn't have cavities until I was in my 20s, but even getting them filled just doesn't phase me.

The only thing that I had issues with was getting my wisdom teeth taken out. I had them knock me out for that and then had some issues with the pain pills and it took me a while to fully recover mouthwise as well.

I hate the dentist too! Always have - I even make myself sick just thinking about going to the dentist!
Other hates:
Being in an express lane at the store when people can't read the item limit! (and the cashiers who allow it!)
Yard work

Playing with my kids
Going to my Taekwondo class

I have always hated the dentist, in fact I have just cancelled my yearly cleaning for the second time....LOL.....the teeth are not bothering me so why ask for trouble.......

Yardwork of any kind because chances of having to deal with bugs is really high and I don't like them so they can stay outside and I will stay inside good comprimise I think. Although I do have to mow the lawn.......

And a doctor visit to the OB/GYN for that yearly checkup....

Things I love:

Having my grandchildren around
Having friends over for a visit

that was my opinion for a while. I brush twice a day and drink lots of water, two big things for the dentist so I didn't see the point.

*conveniently not thinking of how much SUGAR I eat*

And I was this close to a root canal... shudder...

Dentists & Ob/Gyn are the worst.

I think that all Dentists have a huge sadist streak otherwise they wouldn't choose this job.
