In which I am almost perfect

So the dentist says I need to have my teeth scaled. 'I will use sonar to remove the tartar,' she says. 'But I should warn you that people don't like it. It vibrates and there is cold water.'

'Phooey,' I think. 'How painful can a bit of sonar be?'
Ooo yee oww! 
The answer is very.

Other than that she told me I have excellent oral hygiene. And she didn't even add 'for your age.'

How kind not to add, "For your age." :-)

I thought so.

I've never heard of using sonar. If it's painful, I'm not interested. My hygienist does the traditional (painless) scale and polish and that's good enough for me.

I love the way our hygeinist uses 'uncomfortable' instead of painful .It implies wimpishness on my part , rather than overzealousness on hers .
