... But in this particular session, not only did I have two cavities, but the dental hygienist also used the electric scaler for the cleaning - a first for me. For those unfamiliar, a scaler is the standard spikey metal tool used to poke holes in your gums, but this one is electronic, so it vibrates, poking more holes in your gums in less time with less effort. A wonderful piece of technology, this electrified gum-poker is. And at the conclusion of this gum-poking session, she informed me that my gums were bleeding quite a lot. Surprise! ...

GO Route 16, QEW Express to Union Station is already stopped and has its door open 100 paces away. The choice: bolt left for the bus or make a run for the next stop, farther away, but on the other side of two stoplights (which, with a little luck, would be red for the bus and free of cars for an emergency illegal foot crossing by me). Either is a risk. There's no time, so I go with my gut. ... READ MORE...
