Swish and Swallow

"I went to the dentist, today," Florena Braxton announced into the telephone.
"Oh yeah?" I asked, waiting for more information. I enjoy my weekly call with my childhood friend. Instinctively, I knew that this conversation would become quite interesting.
"Yes, I have some issues going on in my mouth," replied Florena.
Taking a sip of bourbon, I asked, "Like what?"
"Well, I have a little fungus on my gums."
I replied, "Ewwwwwww! Gross, Florena." With a devilish grin, I then asked, "What have you been 'sucking' on to get a fungus?"
"Nothing. I haven't done 'that' in over a year - Charles C."
After I had released a hearty laugh, I asked, "Really? What does the dentist want you to do about your fungus?"
"He gave me a prescription for some mouthwash. I have to swish it around in my mouth. I told the dentist that it's been a while since I 'swished' something around in my mouth," replied Florena. She appeared to be laughing on the other end of the phone. Florena continued, "Thanks again for pushing my car out of the mud last Friday night."
"You're welcome. I got my nice pair of jeans muddy for you," I announced.
"Ohhhh, I appreciate that. You're such a good friend," offered Florena.
"Whatever. Now, let's get back to the good stuff. When is your follow-up?" I asked.
"It will happen after I have finished using the mouthwash. The dentist said that I should not swallow the mouthwash, either."
I chuckled at Florena's last statement, and asked, "So, you don't 'swallow'?"
"You are so nasty. You know, I told the dentist that I haven't 'swallowed' anything in a very long time. He and his assistant almost died laughing. Yes, I used to 'swish and swallow' - back in the day. And furthermore, I hope that I don't find my trip to the dentist as one of your blog posts, either."

Until next week, keep praising HIS name!
