Oral Fix

I just got back from the dentist and my face is half numb and tingling. I have to be careful not to chew a chunk off the inside of my mouth. Later, my gums will start to ache. Can't wait.

It didn't go too badly, all things considered. I mean, the smell of burning enamel is always fun. So is that rubber dam and the little wedge they stick in your teeth to keep your mouth open. Although dental work isn't at the top of my list of leisure activities, I don't get too worked up over it. In fact, I've actually fallen asleep in the chair before.

But now I'm going to eat something soft, and very carefully.

Oh sad! It's funny to see people with numb mouths try to eat or drink!
