The Forgotten Appointment

While I appreciate the doctor's office in making those appointments 6-months into the totally unknown future, I tend to do one of two things: 1) Go home and write it down right away in the calendar
2) Go home and wait for the office to send a postcard or call me a week before showing them that I'm still alive and well. Usually the events go off without a hitch.

Today I realized, I can no longer put off going to the dentist. Afraid that the beginnings of a small cavity would work its way into a root canal as that tingling sensation continues, I call the dentist for an appointment and ask for an available time for a back-to-back cleaning and filling in the next 4 days. As the receptionist checks her schedule, she says quite as surprised as I am, "You already have an appointment for a cleaning and a filling" in 3 days! Guess it really is time for me to take care of this!
