My dental check-up was good. Everything in order. Except for losing part of a filling.
How long can I put it off, I asked my dentist.
It has to be done..., he said
My budget wonders if we can wait, I said.
It has to be done..., he repeated.
Then he looked at me and said, You know those little paintings you did some years ago... I think they were angels. Make me one of those as payment for the filling.
In my village, things are good.
