#118: Floss Boss

I had my teeth cleaned today for the first time since retiring.  When Heather, the dental hygienist, knew about my changed circumstances, she pounced on me.

Nancy!  Now you'll have more time to floss!

I hated to break it to her, but I've asked many, many people about their retirement plans, and flossing is not on anyone's top ten list.  Or their top 100, for that matter.

No one ever says, I can hardly wait to retire so I can floss as much as I want.

  1. Love it! NZ is considering raising the age for receiving retirement benefits to 67. I didn't read of or hear an outcry from dentists, but they should consider the effect on the nation's dental health.
