Bad news....I am a big weenie

Went to the dentist. About as bad I imagined. I have to have SO much work done. It makes me resent my husband who has terrible dental hygiene but has PERFECT teeth. Jerk. I was so upset I burst into tears and was a blubbering mess in front of the doc. It embarassed even him I think. (Can you say postpartum hormones?) I have to go in next week for a ROOT CANAL! I am so scared. He actually prescribed me a sedative to take for the procedure because I was suck a mess. Poor poor me.
(Picture in honor of my brother Robby...)

My husband hasn't been to the dentist in seven years. He has the same issues as you. He says everytime he goes, it hurts MORE afterward.

Regarding the needle, now they numb you first with some topical stuff. Then they do the needle. It is much less painful than it used to be.

Trust me. I am a needle weenie.

When I was younger, just a bad little kid
My mama noticed funny things I did
Like shooting puppies with a B.B. gun
I'd poison guppies and when I was done
I'd find a pussycat and bash in its head
That's when my mama said

What did she say?

She said, "My boy, I think someday
You'll find a way to make your natural tendencies pay

You'll be a dentist
You have a talent for causing things pain
Son, be a dentist
People will pay you to be inhumane
Your temperament's wrong for the priesthood
And teaching would suit you still less
Son, be a dentist
You'll be a success

Here he is, folks the leader of the plaque!
Watch him suck up that gas!
Oh, my god!
He's a dentist and he'll never ever be any good
Who wants their teeth done by the Marquis de Sade?
Oh that hurts!
I'm not numb!

Oh, shut up. Open wide. here I come!
I am your dentist

Goodness gracious!

And I enjoy the career that I picked
I am your dentist

Fitting braces

And I get off on the pain I inflict
When I start extracting those molars
You girls will be screaming like holy rollers


And though it may cause my patients distress
Somewhere in heaven above me, I know that my mama's proud of me
'Cause I'm a dentist- and a success
Say ah! Now spit.

This song works best if you hear it in Steve Martin's voice. Sorry to hear the lousy news. DON'T even wanna think about my own next visit. Good luck.

I had a root canal once and it was true what my dentist told me before he did it: it hurt more before than it did to get it done.

I hate the dentist, but mine is cool. And he knows I hate him for what he does to me, but he doesn't mind.
