A word from Webster

One definition of irritating: An old woman sitting behind you in a coffee shop figuring out how to use her new stopwatch.
(And seriously, who–other than middle school PE teachers–even uses a stopwatch anymore?)

A morning of “firsts”

Just heard my next-door neighbor rocking out to “Dust in the Wind,” which means I chalked up a couple “firsts” this morning.

1. I’ve never heard a 55+ woman belting out the lyrics to a Kansas song.

2. And most importantly, who rocks out to “Dust in the Wind,” i.e. one of the most depressing songs ever?

Yep, that's the music video.

I just ate like 14 cloves of garlic on my two slices of pizza, so I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance to:

  • My husband who has to sleep next to me
  • The coworkers who have cubicles within a 45-foot radius of mine
  • Anybody I talk to in the next week
  • The dental hygienist who drew the short straw and has to clean my teeth tomorrow

Focus group learning

Watched some focus groups with a set of dental school students the other day. All will one day be given their own drills and picks to keep their patients’ teeth healthy.

Apparently, one of the key things they’ve learned so far: Don’t ever be drilling in a patient’s mouth and say “Oops” out load.

Valuable advice.
