Sreeja (eating maggi): This stuff tastes like my dentist.
Aditi: Ok… so you know what your dentist tastes like. Interesting.
Sreeja: NO… I mean, it tastes like the stuff he puts in my mouth.
Rest of us: *snickers*
Sreeja: Oof…you know… antisceptic.
Me: So he takes precautions! Good for him.
Sreeja: And metal wires and plates.
Sreeja: Actually, I’ve spent a lot of time with my dentist since class..er…8.
Me: Wow Sreeja, you sure started early.
Sreeja (casts scandalized look at Aditi): You heard that?
Aditi: I agree with Anushka.
Me: ‘Course you would. And you know what else? Sreeja wants to open a bakery, right?
Aditi: Yeahh….it’s so that she gets more cavities and has to visit her DENTIST more often :D
Everybody else (chorus): YES.
Sreeja (by now has decided to play along): You know what my dentist says to me when I’m in his office? ‘Open, bite. Open, bite.’
Rest of us: *laughs violently*
Aditi: *Looks smug and satisfied.*
