Thoughts from the Dentist’s Chair…

Been a while…I’ve been tired, cranky, crazy and busy, and although Ive had a rather eventful and “blogworthy” few weeks, I’ve realized that not everything should be posted online…To protect myself, my friends, my lovers, my enemies, my clients, and my coworkers, I promise to always “think before I blog” and not wreck anyone’s lives (at least intentionally) by say, announcing their extra-marital affairs on my blog (just a random example–I swear!)

OK so anyway, today found me in a dentist’s chair for the umpteenth time this year. After not having insurance for a few years, I was forced to go to the dentist when one of my teeth literally rotted out of my mouth a few months back. My dentist is a pretty nice guy, his receptionist is NOT. Yes, I have cancelled appointments, blatantly not shown up for others, and today, I arrived 27 minutes late (by her clock), but there’s still no excuse for the death stares while I’m awaiting my torture. As I am writing this blog, my cheek feels like there is a flaming metal ball stuck inside it, or something else equally painful. Hopefully the percoset will kick in any minute now…

Here’s my question of the day. When getting dental work done, do you keep your eyes open or closed? I know it’s random, but I need to know! I usually keep mine open and watch TV or stare at the fake clouds on my doc’s fluorescent lighted ceiling but today, shards of my decaying teeth literally sprayed me in the eye! I was forced to close them and it was almost relaxing, minus the drill sounds, taste of latex and throbbing pain. I am now committed to brushing my teeth 3-6 times a day, flossing diligently after dinner and gargling to the tune of happy birthday. Anything to keep me out of that chair after my remaining 6 cavities are filled!
