I hate going to the dentist—especially when it's of the oral surgery variety. My mouth has had so much work done that if it were my face I'd look like a Joan Rivers wannabe (may she rest in peace).And every time, minutes before my scheduled appointment, I'm tempted to call the dental office and say something like, "Sorry, but I can't make it today. My car got a flat and I'm stuck on the side of the highway."

When it comes to our health, there's a big divide. There are some who ignore it outright. Maybe their attitude is "live and let live" and not worry or stress about it. Or they've fallen into some bad habits over the years that they can't break. Or perhaps they just don't know how to be healthy.

The older I get and the older my body parts get—in this case, my feet—the more I gravitate toward shoes manufactured in Italy. No wonder the country is shaped like a boot.
