You know how people always talk about having a flash back? I had a flash forward today in the dentist's office.
The girls had their teeth cleaned today. I was standing there listening to the dental hygienist talk about how vitamins and sealants prevent kids from getting cavities. I kept wishing they had things like topical vitamins and molar sealants when I was a child. It would have saved me a lot of time in the dentist's chair -- or at least I think it would have. Anyway...
The brunette twin was getting her teeth cleaned. She's our nervous girl, so her sister held one hand and I held the other. Daddy managed to escape the fun for a minute.
I heard the blond twin saying, "It's okay Sissy. You are doing a very good job. You're almost done. It's just about over. What a good girl. You really are doing a very good job."
I stopped and flashed forward. I realized that when the brunette twin has children, she'll have both her husband and her sister in the delivery room with her. I don't know what her husband will be doing, but today I heard her sister rehearsing her lines.
