Health Promotion is the latest thing. It is something we nurses are always supposed to be doing. So, in honor of health promotion, I actually flossed my teeth. I intend to do this on a daily basis but somehow, I just can’t. The road to edentation is paved with ….. etc. However, since I actually was going to the dentist, I was reminded and inspired to floss. So I did it out of vanity rather than virtue. Does it still count? What is it that makes this simple task so impossible? Here are Joan, my dental hygienist for at least twenty years, and my mouth which she has so vigilantly nurtured over that span. She is trying to look ominous, but she is too nice. On the walk to the dentist, I walked past this really ugly bit of public art and these cute flowers.
