My dentist looks like a Bollywood star. Again.
The first time this happened, I was living in Hermosa Beach, and Dr. Bhalla was her name. Not only beautiful, she was kind, sensitive, and listened well.
Dr. Ameer, on Kaua’i, is the same, though a different gender. They both have gentle senses of humor.
When I was a kid, my dentist imitated Donald Duck to make me laugh. He also handed out lollipops afterward. Job security?
Today I only need an old filling replaced, which takes less than thirty minutes. The drive to the appointment takes longer, and, on the way, a young girl dances near a waterfall.
There was a time that I watched Bollywood movies almost exclusively. I like that the men are emotional too, and everyone — young to old and back again — dances.
That is what I wish for all of us — a filling dance.
