No, I'm not referring to my dog, although he does drool a lot. I'm referring to my six-year-old son. Today he got his retainer from the orthodontist.
"He's probably going to drool a lot," the orthodontist warned.
Boy, was she right!
That boy stood at the desk as we made our next appointment, drooling all over the floor.
"Hey! That's disgusting!" I admonished.
"Ewww, gross," his big sister exclaimed.
He looked at us with a devilish grin. I knew he was really enjoying himself.
"Keep that slobber under control, or I'm going to have to throw you in the crate with the dog," I said.
I think that did the trick.
