Today, I have a dentist appointment for a cleaning.

It's the one day when I actually brush my teeth after every meal or snack and actually floss - although I tell the dental hygienist otherwise. Of course, I brush my teeth every morning and every night, but that just doesn't seem good enough on appointment day. The expectations are high.

I feel like I'm cramming for a mid-term here - doing any last minute thing I can to improve my score. I'm off. Wish me luck.

*Update: No cavities. Clean bill of health.

Dental hygienist: "Your teeth look amazing."
Me: "I brush them from time to time."
