Just When i Thought….

I couldn’t lose any more body parts,  I have just lost a few more!!  So let’s take a quick inventory, shall we??
This should be fun!! 
 
Lost my tonsils at 10, and again at 13!!
 
My vocal cords were lost after throat cancer in 1985, although I learned to speak without them after a month!
 
Lost a big toe and a few minor ones last year!! 
 
No Biggie!!
 
Tonight I lost a tooth!!  A MAJOR ONE!!!  Right up front and matching the ones I’ve lost on the bottom!!  WOW!!  I can make Mrs Serious earrings!!!  How cool is that??  So now I either  look lke a jack-o-lantern or the banjo player from ‘Deliverance’!  Remember my gardener??  Like HIM!!!
 
The good news is that I have a dentist who promised to make me handsome again!!  Yeah!!  RIGHT!!  Again?????
 
More good news?  I can eat without pain!!  The other good news?  I get to have the rest of my teeth extracted and get brand new ones!!  I’m excited!!  I’m thinking about having him pull the teeth out WITHOUT any sort of numbing thing!!   I have a HIGH pain threshold! Maybe I’ll receive a trophy or something!
 
See? When I was young, in the 50’s, my mom and dad had a dentist who was VERY old!!  Dr, Plugey!!  He didn’t beleive in novicaine except for extractions!  Grinding for fillings??  NOTHING!! 
 
I was eight!!  This guy looked like Peter Lorrie and scared the crap out of me!!!  And then Hell ensued!!  I had nightmares about him where he was replaced by alligators… gaping at my open mouth while I was strapped down!!  Much worse than Jane’s dreams!!

 

He eventually DIED!!!!  (bless his evil soul!)   And I found a new dentist!!  He was much younger!!  On my first visit he determined that I needed some drilling done!!  ok…  But when he came at me with a novicaine-filled syringe I told him NO!!  I don’t use shots!! 
 
He turned grey but performed the procedure!!
 
The next time I came in he again had that evil needle in his hand!!  Again I protested but he said that he COULD NOT drill into my teeth again without Novacaine!!  So I got the shot!!
 
Talk about a revelation!!!  NO PAIN!!!!!!
 
Bottom line is that I still don’t trust Dentists!! 
 
But I’ve heard that the little blue pills  work GREAT!! 
Much better than Dr. Plugey!!
 
Now if only my hips and knees hold out!

    oh no bobbo! 
    Ya, I had a dentist like that as a kid- Loved to hit that nerve-jerk-All my teeth are filled…
     I learned that he lost an arm & still  kept on… ya, he died also-
    Noodles, eat noodles!!
    Today, moving more crap…will it ever end?

    I’m with ya! I hate going to the dentist too. I think most people do. I still go dutifully twice a year for my checkups and cleanings though. The last year or so I’ve had some problems with teeth (molars) cracking. They are fun getting fixed. LOL.  I’m sure you’ll look great with your new chompers.
    One question (if it’s not too personal). What does your voice sound like with no vocal cords? Does it sound normal or is it different. I know it would be different but.. how different? I’m just curious.
    Well, at least you’ve kept one or your most vital body parts~so far…lol.
    Take care Bobby!
    Love Laura

    Little blue pills? Now why would you take Viagra and go to the dentist Bob?  Do you want the dentist to think you really like having your mouth violated 12 ways to Sunday?
    As for me…I LOVE going to the dentist!! But then again, I have only had 4 fillings in my whole mouth and those I had before I was 25, nothing since then (I’ve never had a root canal either).  That novacaine is a bear, I was required to have it when I had my wisdom teeth extracted (they were impacted) 2 years ago, my dentist threatened to put me under if I didn’t, so I compromised.  No really, I did!
    I was thinking about your list of missing body parts…I just realized that I still have my tonsils too.  Guess when the hubby goes to trade me in he can list me as "all original parts".   That’ll increase my blue book value, right?
    Now I’m just rambling, I’m off to shower.  Gotta be clean to get dirty, right Bob?
    XXX~R

    I as everyone else has had dentist problems………. One almost KILLED me when I was eight. I’m alergic to epinephrine (used in those shots) and he just sat there asking my mother what to do- when I was laying there, couldn’t move, breath, or talk.
    Yeah, I’m a bit scared now still as an adult……………………. I make sure to tell them over and over I can’t have epinephrine!!!
    good luck to both of you! No fun! 

  6. Jane says:

    Whoa, bud, you better start knitting things together a little tighter or there’s going to be nothing left of you!  Take care of your fingers!  God forbid, you lose some and have to give up blogging. 
    I guess that sounds kind of selfish, huh? 
    Okay, how about this? 
    Dude, stop losing things, you’re grossing me out.
    Still about me.
    Um… okay, TAKE the novacaine! 
    That’s TOTALLY about YOU!

    Well Bob, it seems that windows live spaces loves to publish my comments more than once.  The one I left earlier wasn’t even supposed to be published at all…I got the dreaded pink error message when I hit add, and I only pressed add once….I swear I did!  I was just coming back to leave a comment tonight when lo and behold, mine-TWICE!
    I guess it’s true, you just can’t have too much of me in your life
    XXX~R 

  11. LORI says:

    Good Luck with all that dental work, Bob.
     
    I was just at the dentist today myself.  

  12. LORI says:

    P.S. NICE LAWN!!! It’s so fresh, green and lush! It makes you want to roll around in it! 

  13. Sherrie says:

    Ouch!!!!!!!!!!  I thought my dental stories were scarey, well they are, I’ll share them maybe one day, but at least I still have all my toes!  High threshold eh?  We’ll talk after you hop up on a table and push a watermelon through your…..okay nevermind……….this is a family friendly space 🙂
     
    ~hugs~ 

  14. Louise says:

    LMAO!!!! Lordy you make me chuckle Bob. Just what I needed today. My first dentist didn’t use needles and all that fancy stuff just used to drill and fill the blooming things. Always hated dentists but mine ain’t hurt me ever not like it was unbearable or owt. My hands used to go white at one point holding onto the sides of the chair, mind I think childbirths made me not bothered much at all by pain lol. Like you tho I have a high pain threshold, maybe a good thing lol.
     
    Glad you’re having such a blast lately it suits you hehehehe.
     
    (((BIG HUGS))) and bright blessings xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    The joys of getting older!  I had a dentist like yours…only this guy was kinda fun!  He’d stand back and see if he could hit your mouth with the water squirter.  He worked fast, so the pain didn’t last too long, but novacaine is much better.
     
    You sound like a very optimistic kinda guy…instead of self pity, you’re able to joke about it.  Hope you don’t lose any body parts this weekend…and btw, have a good one.  Cindy
