So yesterday I went back to the dentist to finish my cleaning and get the estimate for all the work I’m going to have done. It’s kind of a lot – though fortunately the tooth-parging can be avoided – not so much that I won’t do it, of course. But enough that, as I sat there in the dentist’s chair having the accumulated grime of 6-7 years between dental cleanings being scraped away, I started thinking “What extra work can I pick up to pay for all of this?”
And then it hit me: I’ll have a telethon.
A virtual, online telethon.
Just me and my friends and my flower-shaped webcam.
Everything over and above the cost of the dental work would be donated to a charity that pays for dental care for poor people. I’m sure there is one.
Anyway, is this a stupid idea? Do you think I can get, say, 50 random people on the internet to donate $10 to my toothathon?
(BTW the show in Montreal was great.)
