My nose is numb

This doctor did a great job of making sure I was numbed up today. As a matter of fact, the lower part of my right eye and my right nostril are STILL numb.

During the procedure, I had visions of the Bill Cosby skit of him talking about being at the dentist and the smoke coming out of his mouth. My dentist did the shaking-jiggling thing as he numbed me up. He re-numbed me later in the procedure and I didn't expect it and wondered, briefly, if he was suffering from palsy. But, I figured it out. *whew*

I do have a newfound sympathy for my mother after she had her stroke. I can't speak clearly and I can feel (as much as I can feel right now) that my lip is dangling there out of my control. It is a very helpless and frustrating feeling.

I also can't say the word "filter" right now. Comes out totally screwed up. I imagine this will only get worse - painwise - as the numbness wears off.

    It is a good thing your nose wasn't runny today, that would be really funny.
    When I was a Dental assistant the dentist pulled my tooth during lunch. We went back to work, I drooled on a patient's bib. Maybe he just thought I liked him.

    Don't change a thing about your blog.

    I did try to blow my nose because it feels weird and I wound up making this noise and sounding like my toddler when she "tries" to blow her nose. It was vaguely amusing and would have been downright funny had it been someone else!

    And, thanks.

    What is the fun in trolling on someone's site and knowing that the comment is going to be deleted as soon as it is noticed? Is the fun in seeing how long it stays up before someone can get over to remove it? I mean, seriously.

    If you don't like the blog, go back to a blog you like.
