Dentist

Yesterday I went to the dentist. I had my silver fillings (five of them) removed and replaced with the white ones. That meant my whole entire face was numb. Upper and lower. My tongue was numb and kept wanting to escape my mouth that was quivering because I was trying to keep it closed whilst my lower lip wanted to drag on the floor.

Here's a video on going to the dentist that sums up my experience from the drilling all the way to covering the front of my shirt in water that poured from my uncooperative lips:

  1. Ha! Nothing beats a numbed mouth. At least you didn't bit anything? No extra blood caused by a misplaced lip...or tongue?

  2. Lyndee, No, just the heads off of the two little ones when they once again climbed the neighbors fence after I'd told them not to! :D

  3. Oh how funny that is. I bet your were numb up to your brain. Glad you got rid of the ole mercury though, health will be much improved. I'd do it but I have a whole mouth full. I'll just opt for dentures when the time comes.

  7. So true!

    You recovered quickly. I never would have guessed you'd been to the dentist when I talked to you.

  9. Only you and Bill could make a trip to the dentist so entertaining.

    I think the two of you could on the road with a little improv.

  10. Misty, As the dentist says, "No one gets a trophy for being brave here. If you want more, just say it". Oh yeah!!!! Pump me full baby!! I don't want to feel a THING! I don't even want to feel my eye balls rolling around in my head that's how numb I wanna be.

    Natalie, You know, there is no one like him. The man is pure genius and brilliant. Good clean entertainment. I miss the Cosby Show!

    Chastina, It is a good thing because I'd have felt bad trying to talk to you and covering you with my spittle. That would be uncomfortable!! ;)

    Anaise, I could have drawn it out but for me, it was, get it over and done with. If I gotta do it, then let's be done!

    Melissa, I would SO be good at holding the mike for him don't you think? And wiping the spit off of it when he does all of his sound effects in the mike.... :D

  11. We watched that whole "Himself" thing one hundred years ago when we had our huge satellite dish and a bunch of tiny children. The dentist thing is funny. But the little kid part had my cheek muscles locked in the end, aching because I was laughing so dang hard. "Parents don't care about justice; they care about QUIET."

  12. I have that on a CD!!!! I love listening to it!! It's absolutely HILARIOUS!!!!!! I think that's probably a very good example of what happens at the dentist... :)

  13. Kristen, Bill Cosby is the bomb! I've watched this and listened to it on records, yes, records for years as a kid. Canning season meant us all sitting around listening to Bill Cosby records. Good times.

    Hanna, It is hilarious! An awesome CD to have in your collection.

  14. LOL... again! Rachel, I hope you were exaggerating about that experience! :D I've only been to a dentist about 3 times, so I honestly don't know. (I was blessed with superb teeth. :) Sorry to brag) he he.

    PS Cosby is great! :D

  15. Corine, No, that was pretty much spot on! Including the drool down the front of myself. It aint pretty. I USED to have superb teeth until The Native's came along.....then they took a massive hit!
