Throwback Thursday: Dentists are Sadists.

Throwback Thursday: Because I have to go this sadist TWICE a year. Stupid cleanings. Stupid teeth. Stupid.

I had to go to the dentist last week. I was scared. Should I have been scared?  Yep.

Until a few weeks ago, when I realized I’ve had dental insurance for over a year and no longer have any excuse for not going to the dentist.

So, I went.

On the up side, the hygienist was friendly and nice. Not like my last experience with Doctor.

On the down side, it was like a scene out of Dexter (not that I’ve ever seen Dexter. But I do have an imagination.)

It hurt. A lot. Even with the numbing gel.

You know it’s been too long since you went to the dentist when they have to say things like:

Let this be a lesson to you all.  Go to the dentist. Now. Before the plaque on your teeth hardens and the dentist has to use a scalpel to get it off and blood shoots everywhere and you’re totally traumatized.

And a quick follow up note: I had two cavities. I got one filled last week, and hung out with Boyfriend right after, when my mouth was still numb.

So quick, go to a dentist before you have to get a cavity filled and it looks like you have bells palsy and your significant other doesn’t want to kiss you. 


  1. First time here from whatever blog I saw you listed. Where have you been all my life. I'm off to read your older posts and laugh.

  2. Maybe I'm not good at pop culture. But what is a "throwback Thursday"? Do other days of the week get to enjoy nostalgic excursions as well or is this sort of repasting using a repost only good for Thursdays? I really don't know and so I'm asking.

  3. It does seem counter-intuitive that the more often you go to the dentist, the less you'll suffer. I commend your bravery.

  4. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine. Dentists in Midlothian
