What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

    I sent this to my dentist @Xanthippe. I'm sure he will find it amusing, as long as it doesn't give him ideas!
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,723 ✭✭✭✭✭
    :) :) :) If so I would avoid him. ;)

    I think I can trust him @Xanthippe. He's the best dentist I've ever had even if I have to go to Kathmandu to see him. :#

    @mheredge I meant only in case he would like to apply the methods described in this article. ;)

    What do you think of the latest controversy over the effectiveness of flossing?
  • XanthippeXanthippe Posts: 1,723 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge, oh I haven't heard of it. Is it not effective? Well, sometimes a piece of floss gets stuck between your teeth.

    It seems there's quite a few arguments saying flossing is a waste of time. Doesn't your dentist keep telling you to floss @Xanthippe? Mine does.

    @mheredge, he doesn't but I do it anyway. :) I do everything to avoid him (although he is very good). It is just expensive. :)

    I had a really bad toothache when I was a child. So, I had one thing in common with Tom Sawyer. LOL
