One moment alone in the garden,
Under the August skies;
The moon had gone, but the stars shone on, -
Shone like your beautiful eyes.
Away from the glitter and gaslight,
Alone in the garden there,
While the mirth of the throng, in laugh and song,
Floated out on the air.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
In lands I never saw -- they say
Immortal Alps look down --
Whose bonnets touch the firmament --
Whose sandals touch the town --

Meek at whose everlasting feet
A myriad daisy play --
Which, Sir, are you and which am I
Upon an August day?

Emily Dickinson

    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: 1,758 ✭✭✭✭✭
    :) :) :) 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: 1,758 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @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
