Who knew dentists were such great marketers?

September 14, 2010

I went to my dentist today.

He definitely did NOT recommend these.

However, he did feel sorry for me and handed me a $25 Starbucks card before I left so I can stain my teeth another way.

(Apparently, I am on the buy one/get one free plan, as everything he does has to be repeated for a bizarre reason.)

Speaking of Viceroys, my mother smoked the Filter Longs for decades. Her reward was a great case of COPD — chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. That made it so much fun for her to be weaned off a ventilator several times when seriously ill.

Actually, it was probably WHY she needed one in the first place.

Yeah, so, don’t smoke. And if your dentist isn’t handing out Starbucks cards, well, it’s time to find a more contemporary dentist.
