Two Days to Mental Health!

The radio ad sounded too bizarre to be true. In two visits, the clinic would restore your mental health. And you could sleep through the whole thing.

My son and I were driving back home from a fishing and camping trip, and I would have sworn that was what I heard. What?!? I probably said. The ad went on to say that you could sleep through the whole thing. Just what had I missed during our short camping trip?

Turns out, it was dental health, not mental health. It was one of those pain-free dental clinics. Boy, for a moment there, I thought there was something really great going on. Ah, well.
