Job interview in my head:

Job Interviewer: What's your biggest weakness?

Me: That everyone seems to be able to beat me at arm wrestling.

Job Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Me: Undefeatable in arm wrestling.

Happy Monday!

Here's a chihuahua in a dress:

I took this picture in Cambridge awhile back when I was walking down the street to a comedy show I was about to perform on. I took the picture because:
a) It was adorable.
b) I wanted to confirm I wasn't hallucinating! ;-)

The Hot Air Balloon Incident

This is a picture of a hot air balloon that hangs in my parents' home. It isn't the best picture. It was taken at nighttime(which explains the bad lighting) and it was taken in a rush(which might explain why it's slightly blurred).

The picture was taken on a night in the 1980's when me and my family were spending our summer in Deerfield, New Hampshire. We were indoors when we suddenly heard a loud roaring noise outside. It sounded like a lion and I assumed it was but when we scurried outside to take a look we found out that it was actually a hot air balloon falling out of the sky. It ended up landing in the center of a pond behind our cottage. It was a big to do to everyone who lived around that pond. Everyone came together to help the 2 people on the hot air balloon get out of the balloon basket and get to land.

In my little 6 year old world. It was the most exciting thing that had ever happened to me. Whenever I could, I would tell anyone I met about how it had happened because I was convinced nothing else this interesting would ever occur in my life.

I finally stopped telling people about it(yesterday). ;-)

I appreciate your effort.

A few months ago I was driving down a highway and drove past a large dancing tooth. It was a man or woman dressed up as a tooth and dancing on the road side. It looked like this: 

Their purpose seemed to be to "lure" people off the highway so they would make an appointment at the dentist's office housed directly behind him or her. Or maybe it was to do a walk in exam. It had to be. Why would you bother to lure anyone off of the highway otherwise?

Sometimes in moments of silence, like when I am waiting in a waiting room I will think of the dancing tooth and wonder what they're up to. How did they find out about that job? Was it listed on craigslist? If so, what category did it fall under? ETC or medical? Did the person who got hired have a lot of competition? Or were they hired out of desperation because no one else seemed to want the job? Another part of me worries that maybe they weren't initially hired as a dancing tooth. Maybe it was sprung on them after many years of working as a receptionist. One day it was just announced out of nowhere: Hey Roxie! New policy at our dentist's office. Receptionists will now twilight as our mascot, the dancing tooth! Certainly people will get excited about having their teeth drilled after seeing a human being dressed as a dancing tooth on the side of the highway!
And that was that, Roxie had no choice in the matter.

I wonder if the dancing tooth idea has been successful. Has anyone actually walked in and made an appointment after seeing it? Hey you guys! Just saw the dancing tooth! It reminded me about how my teeth are rotting away! So off course I immediately swerved off the highway to finally make a dentist appointment!

I just hope the dancing tooth is happy. That's all. That's the blog post.
