The masks that we wear

I visited a dentist for the first time here and the something strange happened. The dentist and her assistant were wearing a mask all the time from the time I entered the clinic till I left. Even when I was doing small talk while filling up my form they did not take the mask off. For one second I thought I am in some Arabic place where they do belly dancing but these chicks were not wearing anything quite like those belly dancers.

There are 2 ways of looking at why they wore their mask all the time. They probably were one of those extremely hygienic med people who wanted to be extra careful. With swine flu in the air, there are people walking with masks even on roads so I won't blame these two if they were trying to take some precaution.

Another reason why they did not take their mask off could be that they do not have great oral hygiene. I am not but people are judgemental. When you go to the gym, you would look at how muscular your instructor is to judge how good a job he is going to do on you. Go to a salon and you are bound to judge the hair dresser's hairstyle. These two probably did not have great oral hygiene and in these tough times, no one would want to lose any business because of judgemental human nature.

I hope it is the former. I still have 2 more appointments with this dentist over the next one month and they better do a good job.

On a deeper note, people do wear mask all the time but forget that other people are people and judge them. Think about the last time you wore a mask and thought no one would notice it is not the real you. Think about the last time you judged someone for hiding their real identity behind a mask they thought you wouldn't notice. Think!

Only get clothes which can be complementing to the body. Usually do not think that you need to have each style trend that is certainly readily available, even when it does not look really good for you. Regardless how trendy a product or service is, should it be not complementary in your physique, don't look at acquiring it. [url=http://www.x21w12w21.info]App766udi[/url]
