Visit to the Dentist

24 Jan

I like my dentist . . . No offense intended by what I am about to write. But, being a movie buff, I always think about Steve Martin in “Little Shop of Horrors” and some of those evil-looking dental instruments he had. I SAW one of those yesterday.

We had three cavities to address yesterday. Two of them were minor . . . No big deal. On one of them, however, involved a jack hammer and noises I have NEVER heard come out of my mouth. Now, don’t get me wrong . . . I AGAIN say that I like my dentist. She did a good job of numbing me up, and told me to let her know if there was ANY discomfort. There was none, other than the psychological discomfort of HEARING that noise.

When I left her office, I had to HOLD the right side of my face up to keep it from dragging the ground. This morning . . . A little sore, but knowing that things are getting better. And that is a good thing.

But I will never forget that jack hammer, or the device that I KNOW I saw in Little Shop of Horrors.
