I walked into the clinic tonight and spotted a couple lounging – actually cuddling on the seat in the waiting area. He’s a lucky guy with a gorgeous 美眉. Unluckily, however, he needed a root canal. Even less fortunate was yours toothfully who had to do a root canal for a guy who smelled like a cadaver from anatomy class. Gosh, his body odour was suffocating. At times like this, I try to shift my mind to something more pleasant – like that 美眉 outside. How could she … That was when it dawned on me that love doesn’t just make you blind. It can even make you lose your sense of smell and cuddle with a guy who smells like a cadaver (until the spell is broken). Nevertheless, it’s wonderful to note that in this age of cynicism, our young people still believe in love. I still hope he showered and changed his shirt after the root canal and I think I should have included showering as a post-operative instruction.
