W6: Bad wisdom

October 18, 2013

Assalamualaikum.

I've had it for years, so yesterday, after cleaning, I asked the dentist to take a look at my aching wisdom tooth. He immediately said, "oo kena operate ni" and asked me to come again next week for an x-ray. I was like, haaaa?! That fast? No further discussion, no nothing? After that I didn't bother to ask more because I was so pissed off.

Since I was unconvinced with this dentist, abah took me to Klinik Pergigian Gelugor (at Gelugor Post Office) owned by Dr. Khazan Singh. He gave me his old, sweet smile when I told him about this one evil tooth and explained one by one, from the procedure until the method to ease the toothache. For good 15 minutes. I was more than satisfied. This is how a private practice is supposed to be. Not very profit-based like the first dentist.

Mind-shopping

Langit biru sungguh. Kapas kapas awan beratur tunggu giliran untuk berarak. Cantik. Lalu aku pandang di bawah langit tu. Ada shopping mall. Aku berlari anak ke arah pintu masuk. Gembiranya. Mungkin ini petanda yang aku memang harus jadi anak bandar. 

Lelah.
