This story has nothing to do with Everyday Sabbatical but makes me crack up so I wanted to share it - and hopefully, you'll laugh out loud too.
I was at the dentist getting x-rays. (I know … not funny yet). I kept my mask on for the X-ray. The Tech asked if I had any metal objects and I emphatically said, “Nope.”
We were looking at the X-rays and I freaked out because there was a screw in the middle on my head. OMG and WTF? I literally said, “Why is there a screw in the middle of my head?” And I’m seriously trying to figure out how it got there without any pain.
She looked at me and calmly said, “That’s your nose ring.”
OOOPS, I forgot I got one last year.
