People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*

God I'm SO Attractive

I've made it to the gym the past two mornings. As I said before it's difficult for me being organised at 6am in the morning (it's difficult for me to be anything other than asleep at that time, mind you) and this morning I had a nagging feeling that I'd forgotten to do something. I wash my hair, pack my gym bag with undies, towel, clothes for work, make up etc before I go to bed, so that in the morning all I have to go is stick my joggies and vest on, and go.


I was happily doing my warm up exercises this morning, and I happened to look down during the course of a tricep stretchy thing. It was at this moment, that I realised what I had forgotten to do.

I had forgotten to shave my oxters.

Now, being a brunette and a bit on the peely wally side, I cannot get away with this. I was hardly doing a Julia but oh god I was mortified. I snapped my arms back to my sides, and surreptitiously looked around to see if anyone was within oxter-stubble-viewing-distance. Thankfully they weren't, but I was unable to finish my arm stretches, and I spent most of my time in the weights section casually lounging on the machine, trying to look as if I was just taking a break, until the current passerby had moved on. Sigh.

Anyway, I also went to the dentist today for a preliminary check up before I get my teeth crowned. He said I can go ahead with the crowns, and booked me in for two appointments - the first is an hour and a half long. That's the equivalent of a feature length movie (Benny and Joon is 1 hour 34 minutes!), in the dentist chair. Ack.

Plus, because the tooth that I've had all the trouble with is essentially dead tissue (isn't that a lovely thought?) he's going to have to insert a steel post into the root, to strengthen it. Which means I'm already shitting myself at the prospect of more horrible dental work. And I'll probably set off the metal detectors at the airport.

But, hopefully my new wallies will be worth it. I'll be able to smile again! Woot!

i would like to thank you for the hyperlinks. they are very informative. i used to go to the gym but the old geezers just stared at my chest and my booty. i love my dentist. he's really hot looking. and that was before the anesthesia. i had to have a baby tooth removed a year ago and he was fantastic.

Sorry I had a comment but I just see that drama had to have a BABY tooth removed about a year ago. . .that was a stubborn one!!

Actually I had to get most of my baby teeth pulled out when I was young as they refused to make way for the big ones. Still gives me shudders. . .

Well Teeny any excuse NOT to exercise properly right? I'm sure no one noticed your hairy pits. They wouldn't be properly awake at that time in the morning!!!

Gargh - hairy women.......

Looking on the bright side, I have seen 'wallies' used as a term for breasts - new ones for the wedding eh? Hoorah

I had ten baby teeth pulled to stop my big ones coming in squint, then four adult teeth removed - my teeth are HUGE, so even before my recent extraction, I had far fewer than most people.

I had the steel post in the root thing for about five years - it doesn't set off airport metal detectors! (Have you had a root canal done to take out the nerve?) Eventually, though, the root became too weak to support the post, hence the recent extraction. Start saving, as apparently the average life-span for a post crown is about seven years!

On the armpit front, I'm the same - I really need to shave every day to avoid five o'clock shadow. Or wear sleeves.

Me too Cat, I had 13 teeth pulled out and then three braces (NOT all at once). But now I have lovely white, straight teeth and I am so glad I had all the work done when I was young. And could be bribed with ice cream.

I'm English - enlighten me: wallies?

dentists yuk!.had nothing needed for the last 20years thank god!I had a baby tooth removed too,the root had receded to allow the adult tooth to come down but it never appeared,so also not as many teeth as I should have but was easy peasy compared to your trauma.

Pink - You're welcome. I love my dentist too but unfortunately he's balding and in his fifties.

Queenie - Baby teeth can be stubborn little buggers, I had a determined one too till I was about 15. Your teeth are lovely now, I'm v jealous of em. And the pits weren't HAIRY, just a bit stubbly. But that's bad enough! Gaak!

Goth - See above, not hairy! Never heard of wallies being used to mean boobs, I'll be more careful when using that term from now on!

Cat - Oy, you've really not had a good time with your gnashers have you? I should stop whining about mine. Does it hurt getting the post put in?

Hannah - Wally dugs, or wallies, is Scots for (false) teeth, as in 'Ah'll stoat yer wallies'. I believe the word has something to do with the material they were made from.

Phoenix - Strangely, all my other teeth seem quite healthy, it's just the front two that give me bother. And that's because I cracked em off the pavement when I was little. So it's my own stupid fault really, I should've known I couldn't ride my bike with no hands.

Having the post put in is pain free - presumably you've had a root canal done, so there's no nerve left to hurt you. However, they are notoriously unstable as it's effectively balancing on your gum - the first one I had lasted just a few months, and I lost the damn thing before the dentist could stick it back in! I had three all told, and now the gap, but I'm lucky it's not in a visible spot. When I think of the money I've spent - and am stil to spend - it makes me want to weep!

My dentist has a TV screen and you can bring in DVDs to watch during protracted treatments. If your dentist doesn't have that then perhaps podcasts would be the way forward?
