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!!
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!
