Back when I was pregnant, I had this gal cleaning my teeth. She was about my age, maybe a little older and she chatted as she worked.
Having finished the horrible scraping part of the procedure, it was time to polish. She said she had several flavors of polish and since pregnant women are sometimes queasy, she was going to allow me to choose the flavor.
“You can have pina colada, cherry or mint,” she said.
I thanked her and picked cherry, feeling kind of puffed up because of my special (pregnant) status. “You don’t let people pick unless they’re pregnant?” I asked.
“Right. I pick. I get to pick.”
I smiled because I thought she sounded like a four-year old. “Okay,” I said.
She finished my teeth. I left with my mouth full of cherry. The next time I was in, I was no longer pregnant. She finished scraping and was ready to polish. “I am not pregnant so you are going to pick the flavor?”
“That’s right.” she said.
“Pick something I like, okay?” I said, with a chuckle. “Can you do that?” I felt a little flustered, like I lost my privileges, or something.
“I may,” she said, making sure I knew who in control.
“Well I hope you do,” I said. I could hardly believing this was happening.
“If you’re lucky.”
Well I am lucky. I’m not that sensitive and didn’t really care what flavor i\was in my mouth, but I did think this was bizarre. Your mouth becomes infused with the taste and it seems if there is a choice, the owner of the mouth should make it! But only if you’re pregnant! This means if you’re a man, you’d be wholly screwed apparently but I didn’t protest because I didn’t care which flavor and this was interesting for me to observe. People and their quirks.
Eventually it did bother me I switched dentists over this. I just didn’t want this matronly-looking dominatrix dental hygienist making these life decisions for me. What would you have done in this circumstance?
As for the astrology, I figured this gal was a Cancer. She was worried about a pregnant woman… dressed like a “Mom” and wanted control. Having a Capricorn rising, I like to run my own body so there you go. Conflict arises.
Would this trouble you? Are you strongly Cardinal (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)?
