It was Blue Monday and I had a dental appointment. I did not anticipate a happy journey.
As some of you may know, I had a dental appointment recently and took my acupuncturist along. I really hate the Novocain needle— don’t hate needles in general (obviously)— but do dislike that one for the after effects. I thought if I could do without I’d be happier. Turns out I didn’t need either the pain injection or the acupuncture, but try telling that to my dentist—who actually is a good guy but … no Goldfinger.
I did not wish to suffer the Purple Haze which I feel after a pain shot or the Whiter Shade of Pale I look like.
I almost didn’t recognize my acunputurist when he showed up at the office. He wore a suit all formal and everything. He usually wears baggy shorts.
My dentist’s office is not a White Room but all Colors of the Wind.
Aacupuncture produces better hallucinations. I see Yellow Submarines not a Black Cloud like I do at the dentist.
The dentist loves to chatter while he’s got all this stuff in my mouth so I can’t reply. He said he does understand but he didn’t.
I don’t know why he couldn’t understand me:
otha gI w otha g ant otha ga dr otha g ink otha gof w otha gatotha ger
Jon, my acupuncture guy said raise the left toe for yes and the right for no. :)
I tried to speak with metal objects in my mouth and a disgusting dental dam across half my face and thought of Pink Floyd:
“There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re sayin’.”
