Will We Be A Cyborg?

by Steve Mitchell

Today, after work, if all goes according to plan, I’ll get my permanent crown.

Yes!

I’m not normally too excited to go to the dentist, but I’m tired of this temporary crown business.  Sure, I’m used to it.  It hasn’t been too onerous and it’s been mostly pain free.

I’m just looking forward to chewing with both sides of my mouth.  

I’m looking forward to eating hard and sticky foods at my whim.

I’m looking forward to flossing with abandon and using my electric tooth brush where ever I want.

Simple things, I guess.

Fingers crossed, everything will come together and, after this today, I shall, henceforth refer to myself as We.

And I’ll chew gum.
