She Wouldn’t Give the Go-Ahead

I was prepared for many of the changes that accompany aging.  I realize not everything can stay in its original shape and form or work like it always did, but I was totally unprepared for what happened last week. I don’t have any fond memories of going to the dentist. As a child, I went…
