"We girls got ripped off..."

So says Katie. Now it was just the other day that she said boys get ripped off. What's made her change her mind?

"Why, what happened?" I ask. She says, "Well, you and I always brush our teeth. You have to force David to brush his. And the dentist asked Dad if he took a dental batical. What's a batical?" I explain that I think the dentist said "sabbatical" and what that meant, and how he was teasing Dad because he hadn't been to the dentist in a while. She goes on, "So, if David hates brushing his teeth and Dad took a dental sabbatical, how come you have to get one of those canal thingies and I have to go to the orthodontist?" "Gee, honey, I don't really know. But it doesn't seem fair, does it?" "See, we girls got ripped off!"

That's how things went at the dentist yesterday. Girls getting ripped off and guys getting off easy. Life.

She's very interested in pregnant women and babies. As for the rest, she's only eight, so there's still plenty of time.
