Top Five Indicators Your Dental Appointment Is Going South
1.) It takes three hours, not two.
2.) Half-way through, dentist makes sudden, inexplicable code-like comments to assistant, then looks at you in a soothing manner. Way too soothing.
3.) Extra novacaine is injected in Unexpected Places while he continues soothing manner. And God, that hurt.
4.) A scalpel makes an unexpected appearance and he asks you to hold really still now and don't close your mouth.
5.) They drug you *before* you leave the office in a proactive manner that's not a little disturbing.
We will never discuss this again. Suffice to say, I'm brushing my teeth five times a day from here on out.
