Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

The Tooth Conspiracy

My tooth has a cavernous hole, and I’ve been avoiding the dentist. My toothbrushes are probably exhausted from all the overwork. This morning when I stepped into to the loo, lo and behold they seemed like they were murmuring a secret plan to each other. How long would it be before they put their hands up and tell me to stop procrastinating that appointment for a root canal? “Aaaargh…don’t remind me” I tell them and take hold of them by their necks. “I will go when I have to go, meanwhile let me squeeze some more life out of your bristles so that another aimless day can go by.”

About shabnamphoto

I'm a graphic artist with a passion for photography. I like to tell a story with my pictures. Sometimes a picture may speak on its own and at other times it may need an explanation. I'm intrigued by the ordinariness of life and enjoy documenting my life in the light and shadow of what surrounds me. Be it people, landscape, flowers, architecture or birds, the camera helps me see what I wouldn't with my naked eye.

  1. I know what you mean. Would you believe that at one point I had to tooth that needed an emergency root canal at the same time? I didn’t have a choice. My mouth swelled up and had to miss work. It’s for the best though. The fear hurts more than the procedure. The anesthesia did an amazing job that I was slurring afterwards. Great post.

  2. Those brushes looks very tired…. seems like they are hugging. I think you used them too hard. You should give them a rest. Avoid dentists, they make a mess.
