Dead Tongue

Well, the day has finally arrived. If the snow doesn't get too bad before my late afternoon appointment, I'll be off to the dentist to have my broken molar assessed.

And likely I'll have a bunch of shots to deaden the area. I have resistance to the shots so it takes a LONG time for them to take effect. And requires extra shots to actually get the area dead.

Then when the work is finished it takes a couple hours or more for it to wear off. I drool. My face feels like a hamster with too many nuts and seeds in its pouch. When I drink, the liquid dribbles over my chin.

In short...I look like that hamster up there.

What a price to get a tooth fixed. Silliness.
