Florida Dentist Rides Unicycle To Office On His 75th Birthday

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida dentist celebrated his 75th birthday by riding his unicycle 5.1 miles from his home to his office.

James Rawlins said he wanted to do something special to mark his birthday Tuesday, so he rode his unicycle from his Maitland home to his office in Longwood at about 5 mph, the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday."

I can appreciate the 75-year-dentist`s desire to do something special for his birthday, but out of consideration for his patients, he should have found another way to commemorate his special day.

Patients are always uneasy when they are in the waiting room of their dentist, it certainly wouldn`t calm their fears if they witnessed their older than dirt dentist ride his unicycle to his office.

They might conclude that the dentist is a clown who will give them laughing gas just for the hell of it. We all accept the fact that dentists are sadists, but we won`t tolerate any clowns.
