Many moons ago when I was just a preteen, I remember my dentist looking me in the eye and emphatically telling me that one day I would be in college and I would consume massive amounts of coffee, and that when this happened it was very important that I brush my teeth often. Or at least swish water around in my mouth after each cup of Joe.
His tone was lightly begging.
My thoughts were, of course, that I had no intention of going to college and that I didn’t like coffee anyway so I disregarded his pleas. I nodded anyway.
He repeated the importance of this.
This man predicted my future.
Such a wise man.
