Bridget, you make me smile...yes, an open mouth, see all my teeth smile. I love your sense of wonder AND fun. Can't wait to see what comes next.

Irene Latham said...

Oh my goodness, this poem is wonderful and also terrifying ( I do NOT like the drill!) xo

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Mary Lee! :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! I have an open mouth, see all my teeth smile reading your comment. :)

Thanks, Irene! I agree, the drill is the worst. :)

Ruth said...

Fun! And I appreciate your little (i) addition, as an expat myself!

Michelle Kogan said...

I'm glad I read your poem after my dental visit of this morning–though I have some dental drilling coming up later in the month…Fun poem, and a bit scary too, thanks Bridget!

Janice Scully said...

Yikes! The dentist. Drilled in says it all! I like your project and look forward to what comes next. .

Linda B said...

I go to the dentist in a couple of weeks, Bridget, just might take a pic of this with me! What fun your project is going to be!

Buffy Silverman said...

drillled in, indeed! A wince and a smile.

Yay for expats, Ruth! :)

Thanks, Michelle! Hopefully your 'drilling' will be quick. :)

Thanks, Janice! I hope you check back all month long. :)

Thanks, Linda! It'd be funny to know what a dentist thinks of this poem. :)

Oh, the need for really good dental care! Because who wants to get their tooth drilled. I am so glad we were able to put sealants on our child's teeth. I am running to brush and floss right now!!! Janet Clare F.

Sally Murphy said...

I love this Bridget. So clever. Thanks for the smile.

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Laura! :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Kay! Indeed, painful lessons are usually lasting. ;)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Janet! Sealant was a great invention - my girls benefited too. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Sally! I love to 'see' your pearly whites! ;)

Cathy said...

This makes me laugh! Drilled! That's a hard way to learn a lesson. Ha!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Cathy! Indeed!
