I had a few people ask me to blog my dental mishap. So heres the story. :)
A few weeks ago I had finally scheduled a dentist appointment which has been long in the making. By long i mean like eight or nine years in the making. Yeah thats how I roll. Anyways..
So i schedule my appointment get it for the afternoon, 1pm to be exact. I stress all weekend at what could possibly be going on in my mouth. I eat lunch and get a call from a frazzled secretary asking me if i was still coming. I respond with;
Ash: “Uh, yes of course. I’ll see you in an hour, its only noon.”
Secretary: “No, its ten after one, you need to get here now. Where are you?”
Ash: “Wait? What no its 12 Im looking at all my clocks. Someone messed with your time.” (Yes i did argue with the lady, since i was clearly NOT in the wrong)
Secretary: “Ma’am Your late, how quickly can you get here?”
Ash: “Ok, ok, i can be there in twenty”
Lots of whispering and talking to the others in the office….
Secretary: “That will be fine, see you then. Just hurry”
SO i go darting out of the house with just a measly Listerine rinse, (pre dentist appointment 101 fail) completely confused and harshly joking to myself how kansas must be in a different time zone since it was only NOON. After driving for about ten i start thinking about how crazy the whole situation is, and call Dan to reassure myself of the time. I know that Kansas area code is 913, and the number i had called and recieved was not to my knowledge, a 913 number. WEIRD
So i call the office again….Im sure they thought i was completely crazy by now.
Ash: “Hi, this is Ashton Shjandemaar, we just talked?”
Secretary: (sigh) “Yes?”
Ash: “I just wanted to make sure where your located. Um, your in Kansas City, Kansas right?”
Secretary: “Yes, Yes, are you coming?”
Ash: “Yes, but your on Kansas City, KANSAS right?”
Secretary: “Ye…wait where?”
*awkward pause as i repeat my question
Secretary: “OH HUNNY, you are not going to make it in twenty minutes!”
“We’re not in Kansas City, we’re in Ontario, Canada!!”
By this time things were making sense, (how on earth did i manage this?) “Wow, ok i thought something was weird here! I dont know how i managed that!!??”
*both laughing at this point
Secretary: “Well that makes the time change make sense! Sorry Dear, but you did make my day! Bye”
Wow, seriously CANADA!? I honestly dont know how i did that. I must have just googled the name and clicked the first sight, but it said Overland Park, Kansas.. Weird.
Well I made someones day, and had enough laughs for a year! Dan of course will never let me live it down. He even tweeted about it! It actually made my day! Dan: “that awkward moment when you have to be in Canada in twenty minutes” Thats for the support, babe ;)
Well theres your story. haha The scattered mind of a momma!
On a side note i did make it to the place i thought i made the appointment at and told the lady the story, and she didnt even crack a smile. Wow really? I even thought it was funny! So they were able to get me…….. dang it……..
Not being to the dentist in 8 years and having two babies in under two years really kills your teeth. And bad teeth run in my family. SO your paryers are welcomed! :)
