Say "Ah!"
There is one thing that I fear -- the dentist. This is due, in part, to the fact that I had six teeth extracted as a teenager because my palette was too small (it is the only thing on my body that is). And Dr. Bryzowski nearly stood on my chest to do anything from pulling to filling to even checking my teeth. He always smelled like garlic and old shoes. Needless to say, all other dentists have had to overcome his legacy.
Now, however, I have a great one, mind you, but I still don't like having hands in my mouth. Anyone's hands. It is a violation of my space, thank you. Even when John was a babe I wouldn't let him put his hands near my mouth. Ick.
After sitting in the chair for a while this afternoon, I am home, heating pad on my jaw. Did you know that you can't cry, type, and hold a heating pad at the same time?


  1. LOL!!!
    Oh, Matty, I so understand and join you in your fear of dentists!!!! Sure hope your discomfort doesn't last long.

    And don't be impressed by my 7 quilts. I've learned I can throw those together a whole lot faster than I can knit mittens. So from here on out, it will be lap quilts for me and I'll leave the knitting to knitters. (-: I know your projects are much more time consuming - especially socks. (Some day I do want to try socks - they look so cute!)

    Are you getting snowed on again???

  2. Oh Matty! I am so sorry that you had to go thru that today, I haaaate dentists! I had the same problem when I was a kid, and it was the only thin thing on me! LOL. Please take good care and rest...let the animals have a night to themselves and just rest yourself.
    Sending hugs and prayers

  3. I SO agree with your fear!
    I will be praying you feel better soon :)
    Keep warm and toasty and try to rest over the weekend.

  4. Matty, you have me in stitches! I do hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse than mouth pain for some reason.

  5. Awww, I hope you feel better soon! I've had very bad experiences with dentists one as recently as 3 years ago which was the worst one I've ever ever had. Fortunately, I finally found a really nice one last year that actually listens!

    Take care!


  6. Hope you are feeling better today!


  7. Yikes. I have a bigger fear of the eye doctor...but the dentist isn't a favorite either! Some of them do that twilight sleep now...ahhhh...that would be the way to go!

  8. oh no! I'm sorry to hear that you're hurting. Im not a fan of going to the dentist either..I dont think anyone is. I hope you get it taken care of though and feel better very soon!~


Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
