("INAPPROPRIATE FANTASY AT THE DENTAL CLINIC" is today’s short-short story that drills deep into the mouth of a patient who harbors a desire that is best left in the inner recesses of his subconscious mind.
INAPPROPRIATE FANTASY AT THE DENTAL CLINIC
He plays the part of a patient leafing through a magazine as his eyes scan page after page of red lips, buxom breasts and tampon ads in a Cosmopolitan magazine. He’s too absorbed in his thoughts to notice that he has the wrong prop in his hands.
“The dentist will see you know Mr.Anderson,” the dental assistant says with friendly lilts that lift her voice up into the calmness of the heavens. Her voice is beautifully soothing and makes up for the fact that she has dropped dental instruments over thirteen times in the past four years. She also has a beautiful smile.
“Yes I was just about to…” he shouts with a start; a man waking up from a bad dream.
Everyone in the waiting room looks at him.
“Alright then right this way.” Her voice restores calm to the room.
“I was just… ha ha ha” he says as he walks with her to the dentist’s chair. He waves his hand through the air to dismiss any thoughts of strangeness.
He doesn’t want to be seen as a man who dreams night after night of having his teeth replaced with the bristles from toothbrushes. He doesn’t want to do anything that will give away his fantasy of seeing his teeth individually placed on the ends of thirty-two toothbrushes. He doesn’t want her to know that what he wants more than anything in the world is to place these “toothed-brushes” into his bristled mouth to be cleaned. At that point he imagines himself being filled with bucketfulls of pleasure.
But he fears that everyone can see this fantasy written all across his face.
“The dentist will be with you shortly.”
Mr Anderson turns red.
