Reader's Diary #2147 - John Michael: The Surgery

John Michael's flash fiction, "The Surgery" is a bizarre but entertaining story about a dentist who is so determined to get the job done that he will stop at nothing, including a flood that has entered his office. 

What has caused the flood is never explained, and while I was expecting an answer, I wasn't too disappointed by the lack of one. Likewise, I was never able to determine whether or not the flood was supposed to be symbolic (for fear, perhaps?) but was fascinated by it regardless and impressed with the rich description (even when at one point the description is particularly gross).
