I really need to get back to the dentist

For several years, you could set your watch (or at least your calendar) to my dental visits.

You're supposed to get your teeth cleaned and examined every six months, and many times I was back in that chair six months to the day after my previous exam.

I brushed and flossed religiously. I had the world's best gums.

Then COVID hit, and I haven't gone back since.

Mind you, all it takes is for me to pick up the phone and make an appointment. It's that easy. I just haven't gotten around to doing it.

That's what happens when you disrupt my routine as this virus has done. I fall to pieces.

And I'm pretty sure I have a filling that needs replaced.

It makes me wonder how I'll reacthow we'll all reactwhen our lives get back to semi-normal. Routine things like remembering to schedule a dentist appointment may take a minute to get the hang of again.

It sounds silly, but I do think there's going to be an adjustment period. And maybe that's OK.

What's not OK is this molar of mine. It's getting worse by the bite. I'm calling now.
