Oh my achin' mouth

Well, my loyal readers will remember that I took my dreaded trip to the dentist 2 weeks ago. What I didn't tell you was I had 2 cavities. Not on the same side, mind you. I haven't had a cavity in 6 years, so I guess I was due.

Do you know how much I hate going to the dentist?

Anyway, it took 2 HOURS to fill these cavities, because they had to numb my left side TWICE and my right side THREE times. And, when she got into the left tooth, she noticed a cavity in the tooth behind it. So she fixed that too.

It's now 4pm. I can feel my mouth - which is surprising (I thought it would take much longer for the numbness to wear off). But, my teeth are sensitive. Yikes! are they sensitive. Makes me scared to eat. I think I'll cook a baked potato and see how that goes.

I Love going to the dentist, but I HATE when they have to numb your mouth! IT is the weirdest feeling ever! Hope your potato is good tonight!

I hate going to the dentist. The last time I went I had them give me that gas stuff that's supposed to relax you. It was great, then just my mouth was sore and not my entire body from being so tense and stiff. I hope you get feeling better soon.

I with you in disliking dentist visits so much. I'll always ask for the gas for now on!
