How about those people who say "I'll have to read those Narnia books sometime" but never get around to doing it? I know of people that I recommended the books to repeatedly. With some of them it's been years since I told them about the stories. Whenever I ask them it seems to be the same answer, "Sometime I'll get around to it." I tell them about what the stories are about and why I liked them so much, but they don't seem that eager to read them. Or they say, "I would rather watch the movie than read the book".

Well unless they actually do read them...they've got no real claim to being a Narnia fan. :wink:

Yes, you can't force someone to read a book, no matter how good it is. Still, maybe someday my dental hygienist will read them-- she seems quite interested. I discussed Narnia with her in my last appointment while she was working on my teeth. The dentist office-- what a place to talk about Narnia! :lol:

Usually I can't talk much at the dentist. With tools in my mouth etc. :grin:

"I'm more of an idea man" (where is that from anyway?)

…on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.

I talked anyway. The hygienist likes talking to me more than the dentist-- she is quite good with people and can talk you into letting her put the tools in your mouth. She even asks me about my hobbies of birds and astronomy. Maybe she should have been a diplomat instead a dental hygienist. She can win you over a toothache. :smile:

Hygenists are usually the most friendly. :smile: There's this one I always manage to get. I should say used to manage to get because she's in Marble Hill. but anyway she would talk and I couldn't very well answer. (because I was saying ahhh) :lol: She didn't seem to mind though. :wink: I should try to talk about Narnia next time I go to the dentist. It might make the time go faster.

P.S. This is getting way off topic, but don't you just hate the gritty stuff they clean your teeth with? (tastes like sandy strawberries) :lipssealed: The talkative hygenist told me it was made with volcanic sand. ewww.

Out of the dentist chair and into the wardrobe. Imagine that the lamp post is there instead of that overhead light that shines in your face. Instead of the grinding sound of the dentist drill there is the roar of Aslan! :smile:

oooh. dentists are still scary.
i'm resigned to being a grown-up & doing grown-up things like
going to work & paying bills...
but when someone brings up the dentist,
i'm 5 years old again :wink:
