We currently have 5 dental surgery projects on the go, and for marketing purposes we have been contacting other local dentists to offer our services.

Ian: Is this a wind up?
Boss: What?
Ian: This - Dr Tooth. That can’t be his real name.
Boss: It is. He’s a real dentist. I guess his career choices were pretty limited with a name like that.
Ian: ...and what about this one: Phil MacCavity
Boss: Who put that on the list? Stop messing around and get on with your work.

Sunday Morning

Sunday Morning, 9.30 am
'Darling, pop another log on the fire while I make the coffee and bring you some croissants. Oh and save me the colour supplement.' Ha Ha.

(yes, that really is snow on the mountains, and yes, we really did get up at 6.00am to go diving in Loch Fyne.)


Me: Do you want to see the socks I am knitting? (proudly show my half finished sock.)
Colleague: Knitting? Socks aren’t knitted.
Me: Eh? Of course they are. How did you think socks are made? Admittedly most are knitted by machine with very fine yarn, but they are practically all, without exception, knitted.
Colleague: (shrugs) I just buy mine from a shop.
Me: where’s the fun in that?
Colleague: You’re mental.
