Yikes! We hit low of -21° C today (that’s -5.8° F). It was cold … brrrr!
I’m not sure why I’ve never thought of doing this before, but I had a dental cleaning scheduled this morning and I decided to take my iPod along. I was in the final few hours of Fangirl and really wanted to keep listening.
I actually enjoy getting my teeth cleaned (I know some people don’t). To me, it feels like going to a spa for my teeth, or getting a massage for my gums. But still, it’s a whole hour spent lying there in the dentist’s chair, and even though my dentist has all sorts of channels on the TV he has set up in each of the dentistry rooms, you can never be too sure you’ll find anything interesting. Plus you have to move your head a little this way, then a little that way, and sometimes your view is blocked by the light shining at your mouth.
An audiobook is so perfect in such a situation. Like I said, I don’t know why it never occurred to me before.
This time around, I popped in my earbuds and had a great time listening to more of Fangirl. It was so nice and made the time just fly by. I think today was probably one of the most enjoyable dental cleanings I’ve ever had. Plus I only have about an hour left of Fangirl now. I am definitely going to be taking an audiobook to my next dentist’s visit!
I mentioned that it was really cold today, right? So this morning before I left to go to the dentist’s, I switched my regular gloves, which are nice brown suede ones with enough of a liner to keep the regular cold away, to a pair of heavy-duty gloves, the kind that are temperature-rated and don’t feel the cold at all. My hands felt all snug and warm the whole time I was out and about, but when I got home and went to put my regular gloves back in my handbag, guess what I found?
My poor, poor glove
Yes, it’s a rather useless glove now. I’m not sure if the photo is clear enough, but the tip of the thumb is gone, while the rest of the fingers have been gnawed all over. I had to throw it away in the garbage, along with its unharmed partner. And we all know who was the culprit.
Does he look like a cat who’s just eaten a glove?
Hobbes looks sweet when he’s asleep, but honestly, when he’s awake? He’s a holy terror.
And now I have to find time to go buy another pair of gloves.
Have you ever listened to an audiobook while in the dentist’s chair? And do you have a cat or a dog who can be so breathtakingly naughty sometimes?
