|It's Moments Like These

I had a dentist appointment today. Nothing really unusual, that would be worth talking about, except for this time. Hmm... I had to go because a couple of months back I woke up to the sound of me grinding teeth, and with bits of teeth in my mouth... yum.
Anyway... When I went into the room, I was greeted by this rather young dentist - perhaps not any older than I. And all smiles and things, she proceeded to ask me about my work for the next 5 minutes. And then the book I was reading. At this stage... I was thinking... hmmm... this sort of stuff doesn't usually happen. And then she called my teeth beautiful. OK, now I wasn't just imagining it.
And then I left the room, after everything had been done, and I looked to nod goodbye, and she was striking poses. She followed me out to the counter, and leaving her next client waiting, continued to ask me about my book. She wasn't leaving me alone! And then when it came to booking in another appointment, "Oh she doesn't have anything that day." "Ah yes, I'll make sure I can come in early for you". Striking poses at me at the front counter I was wondering if she was going to walk me to my car or not, or even let me leave.
In any case, she didn't. Which would have been nice. But it was just one of those occasions that leaves you smiling, but also leaves you feeling awkward and confused. And for me to notice this sort of behaviour, it must have been pretty blatant. I'm one of those people that just can't tell if someone is flirting, or just being friendly, but this seemed rather obvious to me. Anyway, that was my entertainment for the day, and it's left me giggling like a school girl.
