I went to my dentist yesterday morning for some repair work; a bit of enamel had flaked away from the edge of an onlay that was installed a few months ago. In the afternoon, I visited my optometrist for my annual eye exam (no major change in my vision since last year). And yesterday evening, I got a haircut.
It wasn’t until later that I realized something. Yesterday was probably the first time in my life that I’ve sat in a dentist’s chair, an optometrist’s chair, and a barber chair in the space of a single day. And I’ll probably never do it again.

  1. This isn’t particularly funny, but did it strike you as significant that all this maintenance work was on your head? It’s good to hear that that very vital part of your anatomy is in good shape.

He said, ‘Hey, man, you got a lot of nerve,’ and then I said ‘Hey, man, you have a lot of… cranial accessories.’ [crowd laughs] You guys are a smart crowd. When I do the dumber crowds, I have to say, ‘Hey, man, you got a lot of sh*t on your head!'”
