You Were My Voice When I Couldn't Speak

I get to watch TV on the ceiling when I go to my dentist's office.  I don't watch a lot of streaming TV these days, I mostly pick up my favorite shows on Hulu after my kids are asleep.  So something about watching daytime TV (that wasn't PBS kids) is exciting.  Sure I'll have someone drilling into the roots of my tooth, but I  get a chance to watch TV alone!  

When I got there, Ellen was finishing up (rats), and Oprah was beginning.  She was talking with Celine Dion that day.  The episode was interrupted with  rrrrereeerererrrreeeererrrr sounds from a drill, but I got it.  The syrupy sweet message carried itself into my wide open mouth and gave me another cavity.  I swear.  Puppies and babies and Michael Jackson tributes and-- wait for it-- surprising the Canadian Tenors!  The only way it could've been sweeter is if Celine's son gave her a video tribute!  Oh wait, that happened too!  

I went back yesterday to have a cavity refilled.   I watched Rachael Ray talk about clothes that make you look fat--like turtlenecks and corduroy pants.  I own both of those.  Sometimes I even wear them together.  

As it turns out, watching TV at the dentist isn't totally awesome.  Even if it is on the ceiling.

Daytime TV (minus Days of our Lives, of course) makes me happy I work all day long. When I am sick and stuck home all day, I watch Hulu or hit refresh 100 times on Jayniemoon anxiously waiting for the next post. ;)

All the while I thought the turtleneck was hiding my triple chins, when in actuality it was accentuating it?!? MWUAH!!!

Okay, so the little MWUAH at the end of my post was supposed to be a whine cry, but instead it looks like I was writing a kiss sound. Apparently everything I do lately is incorrect.

Ick, Celine and Oprah, my mouth feels like it is full of molasses.

Glad that I work during the day; however, if I didn't, you can imagine that it would be The Office and other viewworthy shows…not the talk-show and soap opera flotsam and jetsam that flood the TV waves during the daytime.

heh. if i saw that oprah was on, i'd make the dentist stop working on my mouth long enough to tell him to switch the channel.

I think I once had a nightmare about being forced to watch Rachel Ray in the dentists office.

I am a HUGE Sera fan too. He could sneeze and I would think it would be hilarious. The only thing he can't do is play a caveman.

what...no way turtleneck make you look skinny because they hide your neck fat ...which is what I have been believing for the last 10 years...

I saw the Rachael Ray episode but thankfully not the Oprah one. I have enough cavities as it is.

Just saying the name Celine does make my teeth hurt. :)I'm glad I didn't watch Oprah and Octomom yesterday! Whoever did probably needs dentures now!
Funny post Jaynie! Love, Muth

Dear Jaynie,

Celine makes my eyes bleed. The sight of her makes my brain hurt. The sound of her voice makes my whole body ache. Please post something, anything. I prefer some sort of story about Hazel, Prayers from Parley or Julian's love for Toy Story. Heck, I would love a video from Jed, but I know that might be pushing it. How about a family video of you all wearing turtlenecks?

Love from Ohio!
