Do you floss?

So, I went to the dentist this week.
Twice.
First I went to get a cleaning to the regular dentist and then they sent me to a specialist, because apparently a root canal that I have is infected.
I was unaware of this. I feel nothing.

Anyways, while I was at the dentist and she was cleaning my teeth, she asked me how often I floss.
I told her that I could be more consistent.

Hmm. I don’t floss actually.
I think it’s a little bit stupid and time-consuming.
Also, it makes me drool all over my hand. Like an animal.
I have evolved and that’s demeaning.
Demeaning by myself in the bathroom, but still demeaning.

Anyways, she told me that I should floss more so that my gums will not bleed.
And I have. For three days I have flossed.
But I guess my thing is that I never thought it was that big of a deal.
I don’t think I even know anyone that flosses.
I mean, obviously everyone brushes their teeth. It would be gross not to.
But flossing?
Really?

That’s all. I’m just curious.
