My last medical check up for a while....this time teeth cleaning with Lisa. Lisa is my dental hygienist. Her first question is always, "Have you been flossing?" I do have to admit that through the years I have not always been truthful in my answer. But what I've discovered is that most times Lisa knows the answer when I open my big mouth and show her my "tattle telling" gums!
Though I haven't been good at flossing this past year I have lost weight and lowered my cholesterol! Lisa's response was, "When is it my turn?" (meaning care for my teeth)
So today I opened my big mouth when she took all her poky tools out and made a promise. I told her that I've never promised her before. She told me that she was writing the promise down in her medical notes.
I opened my big mouth again and said I would stay true to my promise by recording my flossing history on this blog. So when I have time I'll set up a section for Lisa on my right hand column and report my flossing progress.
So here goes Lisa....I'll see you again in April!
I mean for heaven's sake if I am going to be known as the Laughing Pastor then I have to have decent teeth. So here's for more laughter and good teeth!
