The life of a part time dental hygienist

Could it be any more embarrassing than going out to the dental office waiting room and saying, "Hi, I'm Heather. I'll be cleaning your teeth today," with a HUGE lower lip covered in an outbreak of blistering lesions?! I think not. I just kept my mask on the whole time. Don't want people afraid that I'll give them herpes.

NOTE TO SELF: when you spend an entire week on the beach and you cover yourself from head to toe with spf 55 every two hours, don't forget your damn lips.

oh man, that's a bummer. Good thing for masks! don't feel too bad, I've had a cold all week, everyone loves a hygienist with a loogie in her throat, good thing for the old cotton rolls up the nose trick!
