Watery Wednesday: Watering Van

I was, as usual, rushing to my dental appointment, when I stopped outside the car park. It was closed and workmen were fixing the pipeline. Here, I capture a van sprinkling water on the car park, presmueably not to let the dust fly everywhere. Little did I realise it was an analogy of what was to follow.

I wish I could photograph the sprinkler my dentist uses in my mouth. It has a jet which shoots the debri after she had scrapped away the tarter. I have receding gums, and my dentist suggests that a Waterpik dental water jet might help and massage my gums. My Sister G had one and it is very good.

I still have all my pearlies, and I am very proud of them. But my gum is not doing its job in holding them tight. I used to have stress dreams, my tooth falls out one by one upon contact, and I am left with a toothless gum, and a fistfull full of perfect teeth. That is very fearful.

I have those same dreams, Ann!!! I have read that it means we have a fear of getting old. This watering van is wild!!! I don't think we have them here.

Oh I hate going to the dentist but it is a necessary evil :) Love the shot you took, so spur of the moment and very detailed. Have a Happy New Year!!!

I thought I was the only one that had dreams like that. Talk about a nightmare!

Happy New Year!

That does not sound like a very pleasant dream to have, Ann. Keep trying to get a shot of the jet of water in the dental surgery. Maybe his assistant to take it for you.

Lucky you! I lost all my teeth because of bad food during the war in the camp. My sisters and my mum had the same. Many camp children suffered from perfect teeth in bad gums.

It's been awhile since my last visit to my dentist. In the Philippines when we dream our teeth are falling that is a bad omen. And to cut that bad omen you have to tell everybody about your dream, superstition of course ^_^ Thanks Ann for the visit and have a PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!
