Y'all know I like my Dentist, the every adorable, Dr. Marc Raper... But I will be only too happy in two weeks when I go for my last visit!

The needle tonight was NOT a pleasant experience... Apparently when they hit it just right you get this sort of electric shock shooting to the front of your jaw and let me tell you, I'm no wouse, I can take my share of pain, but this was beyond my threshold!

He was extremely apologetic, and mentioned that this happens now and again, but he's never experienced it himself and added that after my reaction tonight that he hopes he never does.

I tried to say "That's ok, I've had it happen twice before. That's why I went thirteen years without going back" But what came out was: "Thassss ok, I'vf haadb itp happfen twishe beforbe. Thasssss why I wennnbt thrshteebn yearsch wiffoutd goinnk backh" To which he responded, "I guess it's safe to assume that the freezing has kicked in rather fast tonight, huh?" (I guess *I* never mentioned that he's also a comedian! *GROAN*)

So, yea, he was right, the Novicane kicked in tout suite, ce soir! And we were off!
... and after only a couple minutes, "Your tongue! I'm guessing your boyfriend is happy eh?" - and there we have it folks... the 'Dentist Quote of the Week'

And within 30 minutes, three old amalgam fillings were removed and three brand spanking new white ones were put in their place.

When all was said and done, he added, "You know there's only two more to work on, and the needles are different for them. You ARE going to come back, right?" What could I say, he was practically begging me... and GAWD! is he cute when he play begs!

So stay tuned. In two weeks the final installment of DentistFest 2007 will draw to a close.

I just dodged the bullet when it came to a recent appointment with the dentist. Once a year, paying too much money to spit blood into a sink is more than enough for me.
