Beauty from Pain
Fuck the dentist! That man put FIVE. YES FIVE needles in my dayum mouth!!!!! I look like TWO FACE! Johanna is over here making fun of me! One half of my face it so frozen. It’s so bad even my eyelashes are numb. She said it’s so weird watching me speak because only one half of my mouth moves. She also noted that half of my face appears swollen. She’s enjoying making fun of me because I played three pranks on her this week.
I’m going to keep it real. I hadn’t seen the dentist in a VERRRRRRRY long time because I didn’t have medical insurance. That’s because since 2008 I have either been layed off or a contract employee that received NO medical benefits. My ass was not getting Cobra because the mess was too expensive.
So here I am. Years later. laying on that moveable chair thing. In a snow white room. Underneath that bright florescent light. All I hear are drills, clinking, a machine sucking out all my saliva, and the dentist speaking to his hygienist in number code. My left side of my face is so numb that I can’t feel a thing.
The worst thing about this?… I have to do this WHOLE thing over again next month on the other side of the mouth. Why? Because the dentist used the state maximum amount of anesthesia on my face.
The best thing about this? I got out of work today and my teeth look fantastic!
