My Husband, The Tooth Model

The ladies at our dentist office love my husband, John. I think it has something to do with how friendly and smiley he is. But whatever it is, they seriously are crushing on him.

I have thought this was cute. It doesn't bother me. When John missed his appointment a few weeks ago because of a last minute out of town trip, he forgot to call the office to cancel. I had an appointment two days later and as soon as I walked in, the receptionist got up and gasped:

"Oh my God! Is John ok!?? We are so worried about him?!!"

I was confused as I hadn't realized he had missed the appointment and I also didn't realize his teeth were that bad that the receptionist would be so concerned.

At this point, one of the hygienists runs out from back and is all "Oh, what happened? This is so unlike him!"

And so I apologized for John (thanks, John) and had to spend the rest of my cleaning listening to how great my husband is, and how funny he is, and oh wow, he must just love our kids soooo much.

And all I was like was, "You got this from his teeth?!!"

As I was leaving the office, the receptionist yelled after me from her desk, "Tell John to keep his next appointment! We don't want him to break our hearts again!"

I love John and all, but when did my dentist's office start the official fan club for him?

So then yesterday, John goes back for his appointment and comes back home all happy and beaming with a story to tell me.

They asked him to become the "face" of their office and be on their website and all over their office walls. They want to hire a photographer and have a photo session so he can flash his pearly whites so his fan club can swoon all over his pictures every day.

He was so excited. But then I reminded him that while he has the loveliest smile in real life, anytime a camera is pointed at him, he becomes Chandler Bing and clams up.

And of course he remembered that part of the problem, but i think he is gonna wing it. I mean, you don't want to lose an opportunity to have your teeth displayed all over the office and website of our local dentist.

Once in a lifetime opportunity, John. You MUST take it.

I will let y'all know how it goes. If you have any good natural smile tips to give my chandler-esque hubby - we would be greatly obliged.

Oh good grief. John reminds me so much of Bob. Which makes sense that you and I would be so similar, kiran.

But yeah, like John, everyone always seems to love my hubby just a teeeeeeny bit too much. And while 99.9999% of the population is thinking, "Wow, it doesn't even go to his head!" I, his everloving wife, know it does. Secretly. Deep down inside.

So, John, I am on to you and your humble ego. It's ok. I like it.

Let me think of some smile tips. Be back in a few.

I LOVED this!

"And all I was like was, "You got this from his teeth?!!"

That line made me laugh out loud.

And, honestly, I too am Chandler Bing when it comes to photos - I once had a photographer say to me "Can you try not to look like such a bully?"

Nice, I know :-)

Ams said...

Oh dear... it's always something with the men in our life right?
Well let us know how it goes... I don't know if I have any good suggestions but I am sure he will do great (as long as he doesn't pull a Chandler!)

Anonymous said...

just act NATURAL! tell him I am a model! I mean, not really, but yeah. Just tell him to think of the funniest thing he knows! lol.

tattytiara said...

Wow. I went to the dentist today and felt special just because the receptionist recognized me. I can't top that, though!

Kathy's Klothesline said...

Wow, he must one hell of a great smile! I hope it won't deflate his ego if the photos don't turn out!

Shandal said...

My Hubs gets that kind of attention too! Crazy! I loved that Friends episode! Who am I kidding? I love all of the episodes! :)

Allyson said...

So, apparently Neal, Bob and John need to start a Hot Husband of Equally Gorgeous But Totally Ignored Wives Fan Club because other women adore Neal. They think he's SOOOO funny and SOOOO thoughtful. Yeah, he's thoughtful. Until he burps salsa in your face. Or washes your bras with your sweaters on Cotton/Sturdy.

And this reminds me of the last episode of "Men of a Certain Age" where the guy can't do the car dealership commercial with his dad because he's scared to death to be on camera...and his wife had to remind him of that.

All I'm saying is it's a good thing they have us.

I have NO smile tips. Good luck with that. ;D

Karls said...

Hhahahah! That is too cute!

Micko does the same thing... unconciously puts on a stunned mullet dopey as a fuck face, then whinges when I put them on facebook - or the blog.

great post! i can completely relate to being married to a guy whom everyone adores (i'm married to one). also the part where John clams up like Chandler when's he being photographed, can't help but remind me of my hubby who looks great in real life but is not quite photogenic. thank god that's one less praise worthy trait that i shan't have to endure. =)

thanks for stopping by my blog today. i loved reading about you, your blog and loved its design too and i'll be sure to drop by often.

have a great day!

GIRl. you are not going to believe this, Craig is all over our dentist's walls. we are going to have to turn this into some kind of double post. also, john does have really, really good teeth.
you know what, john always looks a little scared to me in pictures. maybe you should hold his hand.
love g

Tracie said...

Maybe they will hire Annie Lebowitz to do his shoot.

Annie @ astonesthrowfrominsanity said...

girl! Sounds like you snagged yourself a hottie! :)

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Hope he gets some free dental work out of the deal. That stuff is expensive! I think models get between 125 and 1500 an hour. He should be able to negotiate a flouride treatment, a cap and two bridges for that.

Sadia said...

I can't wait to hear about the photo shoot. "You got this from his teeth" had me giggling. :)

The Only Girl said...

Sweet - maybe you'll get some free dental work out of it. And perhaps this will be the start of a long and fulfilling tooth modeling career. Break a leg John!

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

My hubby is totally Chandler Bing when the camera is pointed at him. I love that episode! Look back at our wedding pics, his smile leaves something to be desired.

LivingInspired said...

Seriously? I would go in with him from now on! Those hygenist hounds! Too funny and awesome at the same time. I always wondered who got picked to be that person with the awesome teeth and wondered if they were, after all, fake teeth. Now I know!

jessalyn said...

ugh. i tell manfriend all of the time that he is like the mayor of cape cod or something. he knows everyone, and they all seem to think he is so wonderful. they do not have to live with him. haha
um, no smile tips, because i look like a dumbdumb in my pics (see profile image) :)
good luck to hubby and his soon to be dental fame!

Lemon Gloria said...

Hahaha! They got this from his teeth!

And famous! He's going to be dentally famous! Yay!

Salt said...

Yeah...SURE they want those photos for the website and office walls. Those creepy ladies are going to be carrying around pictures of John in their wallets and making weird voodoo love dolls and worshipping at a little altar they made out of his used paper dentist bibs in the back of the dentist's office.

Ew I just grossed myself out a little.

But seriously, GOOD FOR HIM! I hope the smile works out well for the photo. :)

Erin said...

Woooo to the Hoooo! He's going to be a celebrity!

He should just picture everyone in their undies. and right before they snap the pics, they should yell out funny things like, "POOP!" or "Boobies!" and I bet that will prompt a real smile.


MiMi said...

Oh my crap, I can't think of anything because I'm laughing too hard at this shiz. Hilarious!

Amy said...

This is so funny!

It's totally random that the dental ladies would be that inamored with a patient...It's things like this that really crack me up!

Give John a shot of tequila before the photo shoot! He'll be good and smiley:)

AJ said...

wow. what a major burden you must carry, having a hubby who is so amazing an all.

hahaha. That's funny! Good for him! But the dental office girls obsession is a LITTLE weird. JS

blueviolet said...

He's a poster boy for pretty teeth! That's something not too many of us can boast about!

Anna See said...

you are hilarious!

he must one heck of a smile!

Sara said...

My goodness. He must floss like, EVERY SINGLE DAY!

Caroline said...

You guys are both so freaking adorable, I am surprised they didn't ask both of you to be the "faces." Then your kids will get to be "Faces: The Next Generation."

He, from what I can tell, has a lovely smile . . . just tell him not to over think it.

meredith said...

baahahaha, this is too funny!!

if quasi was asked this, his ego would explode bigger than it already it. john appears to be much more humble.

Sarah said...

Oh this is so funny! If something like this happened to my hubby he would be so so proud, too. Men are so funny!

Salt said...

Hey K...

I just heard something on TV and thought of you. On World News Tonight they were talking about all our snow and I blamed it on El NiƱo. You are so on to something.

Stay safe this weekend!

Shell said...

That's hilarious! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Are you going to be in Baltimore, too???? :)

I have an award for you over on my blog.

Namaste_Heather said...

Oh my goodness, Kiran, that is so funny. My husband has a few "followers" too. Namely a few neigbhbors. Nice.

Let us know how it all turns out. I have no smiling tips - I take horrible pictures myself.

Until next time,
