Until today, I never understood why people didn't like going to the dentist.
Then again, until today I'd never had to get a cavity filled.
I'd never had a 2-inch needle shoved into my jaw (4 times!)
I'd never had my entire face go so numb that I couldn't even open up my eyes.
I'd never had my lower lip feel so much like swollen rubber.
I'd never had a dentist stand over me with a chisel.
I'd never had a nurse laugh at my failed attempts to ask a simple question.
I'm sorry, I just never knew... and now I'm already dreading having to go back and do it all again next month.
Hey guys, I get it now.
