Edmund Spenser said something about "teeth being pearls" so...


...it's the dentist for me today. Here's a picture of a 1927 flapper from the Pictorial Review paying her quarterly visit to her Doctor of Dental Surgery.

The Flower Drum Song words come to mind!

When men say I'm cute and funny
And my teeth aren't teeth but pearls,
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl.

Hope there's no drilling involved.

Make sure the dentist (or hygienist) didn't just get back from Mexico!

Have we discussed the fact that you're a Cancer too? I forget. It was Attic (I responded).

Be sure to rebel after the visit by sucking on a lollipop! I just LOVE this image!

Flappers are my favorite. Such great style. I love those retro magazine pages. And I hate the dentist.

i hope you did well...you are brave!
