Long story...eh...not that short, it took forever for me to have a time I could get to the dentist when all of the appropriate people would be there. That happened yesterday.
Crystal's First Root Canal (I'm leaving the pictures as links because...well, I am).
I was terrified. But Twitter kept me company. A sampling of my day is below: #rootcanaltweets
.Oh, I don't want to do this http://instagr.am/p/LvtTBLyFmn/
That's not glitter, that's fear in my eyeshttp://instagr.am/p/Lvth0wSFmy/
Lisa then said, "Run" but...
Omg this dentist is loud, happy, & obnoxious. I may stab him
Overheard: we don't want no prick.
God I hope I can tweet while they work
Wtf is all that? http://instagr.am/p/Lvu1uTyFne/
They keep bringing in more stuff http://instagr.am/p/Lvu6jCSFnh/
Well, I think I broke the tv
oh, ha! I'd just turned it off
But I get a fancy paper bib
Assistant: are you nervous? Me: yes. Her: why? Me: stab
They should call this a glitter unicorn procedure because that doesn't sound as scary
Oh god, he told her to make sure the turbo motor was in here!!!!!!!
I hope they know this is going to be live tweeted
They do now. They're laughing about it & saying they should be on good behavior.
I told them i was Tweeting their every move. I think it scared them. ;-)
http://twitpic.com/9vf0zt look! Friends!
I have a stick in my mouth. My face is going numb.
Assistant does not have a twitter. We can't be friends.
http://twitpic.com/9vf2nc I wore running shoes on case I have to make a quick getaway
He buttered me up by telling me he liked my glitter eyeliner before he shoved a needle into my gums
http://twitpic.com/9vf4lz but I get to hold Mr. Thirsty
Dentist is singing ebony &; ivory in the next room. Save some nitrous for me, guy.
My face has slid off my skull & is now in a puddle on the floor.
They'd better get this done before friends is over
I'm thinking about Root canal http://goo.gl/pp6Xg
Hiding in the barhroom http://twitpic.com/9vf7m1 no, really
mah wip feews funneh
Seriously, the singing has stopped & he's nowhere to be found. I fear I'm about to be murdered.
Great...asst goes by & says "I feel like I'm on crack"
I smell burning. Is that normal?
I was told by a Twitter-peep that is is. It was just the BONE BURNING!!!! Nobigdeal.
But they are hooking me up with pain meds for later. That scares me a bit.
Feels like a really painful sinus infection now that the stuff is wearing off
I did end up taking one of the pain pills when I got home and another at bedtime. I'm fine today though. Well, as long as I don't bite on that tooth - but it's not really a biting tooth, so I'm pretty ok.
Tomorrow-ish, look for an uplifting-type post where I tell the bricks to SUCK IT. ;-)
