Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This
It is now almost 1:00 AM and I am not sleeping because my toothache will not allow it. I have always had a healthy fear of dentists but from time to time my fear of dentists is overcome by my aversion to pain. This last week was just such an occasion. I have a bad tooth and when the orajel, whiskey, and any number of painkillers failed to quiet down the pain I made an appointment with the dentist. That was Friday morning. After seeing the dentist I was advised that my tooth is too weak to pull and that I would need to see an oral surgeon. Well, to make a long story short I'll be going to the oral surgeon for the first time in about 8 hours. I have never seen any kind of surgeon before and have never been put under. I'm usually excited about new experiences but these are two experiences that weren't exactly on my list of possibilities. If they are able to wake me back up I'll let you know what I thought of this whole experience.
