Hump Day Quickie: My Face is Numb!

So, I have been thinking about starting this "Hump Day Quickie" weekly/bi-weekly mini-series for a long time and I figured what better time then now? You are right, there is no better time! I am thinking when I have random thoughts on throughout the week, I will give you a quick and delicious post here and there on Wednesdays. BUM, BUM, BUMMMM, and Hump Day Quickies have been born!

Today, my quick note is about my trip to the dentist today. I needed to get a filling fixed (darn chocolate is always hurting me in various ways), so I went into the tooth hospital for the afternoon to get repaired. As I type this, I am still drooling out of my numb half of my face as we "speak." I think it is pretty funny as I have glimpsed in the mirror at myself to see I can only smile half-way and barely make out a kiss motion. There will be no selfie duck face for me today!

What I am wondering is why does this stuff last so long? I got done about an hour ago and I just want to be able to talk normal and swallow water, is that too much to ask? I am also getting up my courage for a trip to the store. I know they are going to ask me a question like "How is your day going?" or "Did you find everything okay?" and I am going to have to muster up every bit of alternate operating facial muscles to talk like I have some sense. Don't you just hate that?!

Here are a few things you should do before you head into your next appointment with the tooth warden:

  1. Take your selfie for the day if you need to.
  2. Make all the calls you need to or simply stick with texting.
  3. Run all your errands that require human interaction; especially those in your neighborhood where you see the people often enough to know you! 
  4. Have an easy meal handy like soup ready and a straw for your drinks. *Make sure it is a cute one so you feel better!*
  5. Listen to them when they say you need to floss like a maniac so you don't have to deal with this misery. Just do it. 
I hope you have had a great week so far and I look forward to catching up with you for these weekly, random and delicious thoughts floating through my head! Tell me what you hate about the dentist below and until next time...
