Hester BooksThis good looking smile of mine is not an accident, folks. When I retired I no longer had dental insurance, so I started going down to the UNM, School of Dental Hygiene and let the students there practice their skills on me. It as been about five years now. I get a second year student and usually we stay together until they graduate. I’ve had some good ones, all nice and caring girls who have gone on to jobs in their chosen career. Yesterday, I said goodbye to Kayle. I could well remember her first time working one me, I’m always kinda “skeered” the first time, but she did good and the instructor only corrected her on a few things. Yesterday, she was a real professional. The instructor bragged on her and I commented to the instructor that she indeed was now a pro. The instructor said that is what they like to hear. But she really was. She had to deep clean two of my back teeth on both sides of my mouth. She gave me two shots and did a good job, with the shots and deep cleaning. When she walked me up to check out and charge me for those services, she gave me a hug…well, and I hugged her just as much, saying goodbye, as she will be graduating this year and moving on with a new job somewhere in Albuquerque or Rio Rancho. She let me know that her, “little”. a name for her replacement, Maria would be handling me starting in August. Maria will be my fourth one to help train….You know what? I feel so proud of all those kids and while my part is so small in their training, I still just feel like an important part of it…So it’s goodbye, Kayle and hello, Maria. I hope to keep that “good looking” smile….Thank you, UNM School of Dental Hygiene…

It is indeed a beautiful smile on such an ugly face. I’m kidding! In reading this post, I can’t help but wonder oh where, oh where did all the guys go? First the gals took over the news (journalism) industry, then they took over the chemical analysis (laboratory) industry, now they seem to have taken over dental hygene (medical) industry. Where are the guys? Are the homo sapien guys rapidly going the way of the drones in the beehives? I wonder! Has masculinity become emasculated? Is this the beginning of a homo sapien society where the great majority become simply the worker population slavishly serving the queen with the old drone slavishly performing his sex (reproductive) function, then dying an ignonominous death while the worker bees slavishly perform their routine task of feeding (and protecting) the society and dying after s very short ignominous life.

Funny you should ask that….Sweetie next semester hygienist is David…so far in a class of 22 – 24 kids, seems like 2 or 3 are boys…That is about as many as I have seen. I don’t know about the balance of you comment, er, the reproductive part, just never thought about it I guess…
