Perks of an Ordinary Life / by Rebecca Tillett

Today, today at the dentist my hygienist said to me: “Well it’s a good thing you’re beautiful!” after my good 5-minute rant about my bad hearing, bad eyesight, dislocated jaw, among other things. My bad genetics.

And I swear I smiled so big I almost cried, even though I only half believed her.

Ah, the signs and perks of an ordinary life.. I’m proud to have one.

(and I presume this isn’t something I’ll ever forget.)
