Mother, should I trust the Government? Or YOU for that matter?
Both have always told me, “Make sure you floss!”
I don’t like flossing. It takes up too much time, if you don’t do it consistently, you’re gums bleed all over the place.
Yet every time I know I have a dentist appointment coming up, I try to get on the flossing train. It always derails. And then you sit in that chair and the dentist says, “Have you been flossing?”
“Yep,” I tell him.
I’m lying. He knows it. I know it. But he’s very polite and says something reassuring like, “Oh, well I’d recommend doing it just a little bit more.”
“A little bit more.” You mean, like, at least once?
A recent study says flossing is a bunch of baloney! Just like I’ve always known!
So I put it to the test.
Consider me on board the “No Flossing” train!
