P.S. for Today

4 Jan

So last night i had a tooth that was a little achy.  By this morning, it hurt.  By the time i got to work, it was excruciating, and my jaw had swollen out like a  – I don’t know – like a beanbag?    Ugh.

Ouch, ouch, ouch


Thank goodness, my dentist worked me in – massive infection – he’s amazed it could get this bad so quickly, with so little warning.  Antibiotics and pain pills – root canal in my future.  😦 

Two shots of novacaine, two doses of antibiotic, and one pain pill later, it still hurts.

Thought – if i were the type of person who believed that emotional pain could overflow and be expressed physically – wouldn’t it make perfect sense that i would suddenly have a tooth blow up?

And then i realized – O – i am that type of person! 


Ready for another pain pill and

                                               going to bed now….

    Ah the dentist. They are all clearly sadists. Seriously, they chose a field of work that could best be described as “poking about in people’s mouths with sharp instruments”! Ever seen Little Shop of Horrors? I rest my case.

    Hope you feel better after a good rest though.

        I watched this right up to the point that he starts doing dental things -then my jaw screamed in sympsthetic pain and I had to stop!!

        Thanks, I’ll watch it when my jaw’s calmed down a little.

        It is the perfect illustration though…

      Dear Beast/Master – I have not actually seen Little Shop of Horrors, although I’ve heard lots about it… But I agree that dentists have a liitle mean streak!

      Although -feeling kind of grateful to mine tonight.

      Thanks for the feel-better wishes!

    Aww sweetie… I think you should stay home in bed tomorrow and read kiddy novels and eat ummm soup and cake.

      Soup and cake doesn’t sound half bad either, although I think I’ll have to throw in some of Molly’s ice cream. And I love kiddy novels… Thanks, Sin!
