OUCH, OUCH, OUCH!
I hate going to a dentist! The first time I meet a new dentist I immediately tell them I am the biggest chicken they have ever had and as far as I am concerned they can hit me in the mouth with a sledge hammer, pop some dentures in, and I’ll never have to see them again.
Of course that shocks the daylights out of them but then the sympathy takes hold and they assure me that I’ll be fine and they’ll be as gentle as possible. Do I believe them? No!
Most of this day has been spent in that dentists chair getting two crowns done. With nerves on edge I won’t open my mouth until I’m in the twilight zone with “Happy gas” lifting me up and away and beyond.
During the procedure inspirational music is blasting in my ears to take the edge off the sounds of this invasion going on in my mouth. Praise God He knows what I need and helps me through it. It also helps that my Dentist buys my books and loves them. He bought I AM this morning.
I’m so glad I don’t have to be literally talking to communicate this to you because my face is a rock that I think is a part of my body. I’m not sure about that because I slapped myself and felt nothing. But the drool is confirming it is a part of something.
I’m just thankful I’m not in the middle of writing a novel because I don’t think I could with a frozen face , a dulled mind, and dreading when the “frozen becomes unfrozen”
At least my fingers still work. 🙂
Bear with me, I’ll be more sane tomorrow.
