I only floss because I don't my dentists intimidate me. There you are. Immobile. Lying back in that chair with the harsh light blinding you. This doctor has sharp, pointy objects haphazardly chipping away at six month's worth of plaque. "Of course Dr. R, I've been flossing. Heh heh, I got those ones with the handles."
What would you say to a lady holding a utensil that looks like a sci-fi alien dagger? "I brushed for two days before this appointment. I will brush for exactly six days after this appointment. Also sometimes I'm too tired and just use mouth wash instead of brushing."
I think not.
If you'll excuse the expression, I lie through my teeth.
