A Lesson learned

So I am lying horizontal on my lovely dentist’s chair looking up at a blank tv screen hanging from the ceiling above me.

My dentist inserts a camera in my mouth, the tv screen lights up and oh my stars bloggie friends, I see my teeth! In full gaudy technicolour! In extreme close up!

I swear then and there that I shall always and forever more never forget to brush BEHIND my front teeth.

Charlie says: Finally, snack time!


Have a mesmerising Monday everyone!

6 oh so exciting days to Christmas!

A camera in your mouth? Good lord! Don't think I'd like that ...

When I was at the dentist last week, all I had to look at was a faded picture on the ceiling of a goldfish, which incidentally was hanging on by a thread, and, in black and white!

Hi there,
Penny here. Gary, you remember him, the dude I allow to live with me, says whilst watching your teeth in technicolour, it might have been neat to have the theme music to Jaws playing in the background:-)
See what a clever dog I am. I can type!
Pawsitive wishes, Penny xx

Snack time? I love snack time. Why I'm having a snack time right now. Fritos.

Caren Gittleman said...

Wow!!!! I sure hope my dentist doesn't get a camera like that!!!

Hope I never see that TV station!

GAH! Some things are not meant to be seen. Ever.

Steph Sinkhorn said...

Oh dear. I think that might scar me :(

KITTY!!!! Cute as always :D

Clarissa Draper said...

Wow, the dentist has technology. I'm impressed. My internet where I'm staying is incredibly flaky so I might not be able to comment much this week.

You crack me up =P

If it makes you feel any better, I remember to floss about twice a month...

Summer Ross said...

Dentists are interesting. Eat it all up charlie!

Looks like Charlie has no problem with HIS teeth!

Al said...

Yuuuuuck. I hate looking in my own mouth!

fairyhedgehog said...

I hope the dentist visit wasn't too traumatic.

Brian said...

Dental things are no fun, let's eat Charlie! I'm still on our phone, no internet.

The Monkeys said...

Dentist's magnifying glasses and cameras are just awful!! I feel the same way after every visit. Enjoy your noms, Charlie!

Kea said...

LOL! Oh, that was too funny! My dentist's TV runs gross videos of gum disease and lessons on how to brush properly.

I hope it went okay, all fixed up!

Manzanita said...

Ain't that a shocker-roo? Charlie has the fanciest of dishes. One lucky duck, errr cat.
Manzi ... xo xo

Susan Fields said...

I would definitely not want to see my teeth on a TV screen. Do they do that to scare us into better oral hygiene?

Enjoy that snack, Charlie!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I know what you mean, Jen! Once a person passes a certain age tooth tarter seems to proliferate! It's gross. I use a tarter control toothpaste and brush after every meal.

Stephen Tremp said...

I hope Charlie is brushing behind his teeth too!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Don't ya just love the dentist? They expose the worst sides of you :P

But they do keep us on our toes, brushing and flossing (or wishing we brushed and flossed more...)

You have a mesmerizing Monday, too, sweets!

notesfromnadir said...

You were shown in full color? What will they think of next to entertain you?

I like Charlie's food bowl -- looks appropriately elegant!

Tara said...

Why is that the hardest spot to brush?

soggibottom said...

Bet the dentist started to talk to you expecting you to answer too :-)
Go for it Charlie. yum !
:-)xxx

Sammy and Andy said...

Our mama is a little under the weather today, but we wanted to stop by and let you know that we love ya both. xxxxxxxxx

Hannah and Lucy said...

Did you charge the dentist for filming rights to the back of your teeth?

Ann said...

There are just something's we are better off not seeing! I hate those dentist movies.

Hope you treated yourself to a nice treat after being subjected to such trauma.

LTM said...

I have to confess, I'm not such a fan of that dentist tool either! :D

Merry Christmas to you & Charlie! :o) <3

roxy said...

I have rarely been to a dentist office when I haven't discovered something I've neglected to do with my teeth! This post has reminded me to floss more often. Charlie is adorable, as usual. Have a wonderful Christmas, Kitty!

Marg said...

Oh my that sounds horrible. Hope that doesn't happen again or at least next time, tell him NOT to do that. Yuck.Charlie, that sure looks like a great snack. Yummy. Hope you have a super week. Christmas is coming.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh wow, I haven't been to the dentist since mine retired a while back and oh, this doesn't make me want to go!

Hart Johnson said...

What I want to know is if it was scary enough to give up coffee and red wine. I know my teeth are terribly stained and THOSE are the culprits.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

That would be one of the times when I wouldn’t be too appreciative of technology. I wonder if you can ask for a good movie instead!)

KarenMcG said...

Camera in your mouth? That's a new one on me...well, I hadn't heard of that around here. And I'm surprised, because our dentist seems to get all the new-fangled stuff.

Now about that photo of Charlie. Cute, cute, cute. But when I first looked at it I saw a photo of one of those little white mice.

Look closely. See the two black spots by Charlie's ears? To me, they look like eyes!

Sorry Charlie. I love you anyway.

"The Boys" and Karen

Ellie said...

Your teeth on a tv screen? Gosh. Whatever next?!

Tell Charlie I prefer chocolate snacks. LOL.

Lola Sharp said...

I don't think I've ever had a camera in my mouth.
If it meant I didn't have to let them put those weird plastic things in my mouth while they x-ray, I'd be thrilled.
I'm an avid brusher, but my flossing kicks ass. :)

Hmmm...I wonder if Charlie would let you brush his teeth?

Have a very Merry Christmas!!
Love,
Lola

Theresa Milstein said...

Getting a close look at our teeth is as about as unglamorous as it gets. That and putting our feet in stir-ups.

Rene said...

Our dentist has one of those too! I hate it, yuck!

ABBY said...

Hope it was just a cleaning!

Hello dear Charlie.

lupie said...

If, it was me on the dentist chair ..

Imagine having 3 day-old vegs stucked in between, super biggie version ... I'd faint, the dentist too!!

Gotta catch up on your posts!

I've been well, mentally challenged lately.
