I finally had to give in today. I did all I could to prevent it....but alas, it had to be done. I had to have an extraction, (the unnatural process of yanking), today. I had a pre-molar removed, a lifelong friend that had done me good and proper service. The act of extracting teeth, is actually an unnatural act and a violation of the human skull…..so much for a rant.
I was offered gas and took it joyfully, because the last time I received a Novocain injection, the needle pierced through my gum and palate and penetrated to the cerebral cortex of my brain. The dentist said I was full of shit, but all I know is I still can’t remember my phone number to this day. Anyway, I was administered the gas and when I returned from my trip, it was all over. I was relieved, the dentist was satisfied and the assistance, who was in charge of siphoning the life blood from my mouth, was busy texting.
I have already blogged about dentist before and even though we need them and it’s an honorable profession, it just seems like a strange imbalance of nature to be physically violated, subjected to various levels of pain and then have to pay for the experience....unless they’re wearing a tight bodice and black boots.
