That Moment Where the Dentist Drills and Fills the Wrong Tooth

It didn’t seem right.

I wanted to say something, but I didn’t speak up soon enough.

So yes this happened.

It happened this morning.

It happened to me…

…Except it was a mechanic, not a dentist.

He was plugging a tire, not filling a tooth.

And I sensed when he pushed the plug in he was widening a hole that had not yet been created and was out by about an inch on the hole that the nail had caused which he had just been working on..

…Brand new winter tires, scarred for life.

And me? The emotional trauma. The horror of it all.

Not exactly the dentist, but equally disconcerting.
