And did you know that dentists give you pain pills now to see you through until your procedure so at this exact moment I am typing carefully...afraid that my medicated tooth might make me blab...
Have you ever done that?
A friend says "How are today?" in a truly "just semi-polite" way and you start babbling away. Crying into tissues. Your friend gets all freaked out and uncomfortable and pats your hand. And make you tea.
And the next day you feel like a fool cuz you told them all this stuff you didn't plan on telling them...
...and you have to lay low for a few days until you think they might have kinda/sorta forgotten some of the dirty details...
This has never happened to you?
Are you kidding me?
OK, See? See? The tooth is making me talk already so I better sign off for now.
When I told somebody I was needing a root canal they started telling the horror stories of how bad theirs was and it made my tooth all frightened.
... and now the tooth is wanting to whine to you about how much it hurts and how scared it is about the root canal and wah, wah, wah...
Geez. What a baby of a tooth.
I'm just fine.
Not scared a bit. La. La. La.
Really I'm not.
That's my story and I'm totally sticking to it.
