Oh boy, today is root canal day. Joy of joys. I opted to try a different dentist for this procedure. I love my dentist, but he’s not so down with the technology or gas. I need some aid to help me relax. I went to Dr. Shuster’s office on Geary. Nice enough looking place. Modern and very feng shui. They relax me a bit by telling me all they do, all day long, every day, is root canals.
I opt for nitris aka laughing gas, to help me relax. It works at first. But I have to get them to up the level. Apparently I had a very sophisticated tooth..as they put it. Sophisticated to them. F’ing bastard to me. I was in that chair from 1-3:30. I’m not joking. They say a typical root canal is 1-1.5 hours. Lucky me. Three days later and I’m still reeling from the pain. I had to take a pain killer last night to help me sleep.
I did manage to play tennis with my 4.0 team that evening. I don’t know how I managed. I must have still be a little high from the Nitris. I did win all three sets I played. Maybe it was the fog. Maybe it was the nitris. Maybe I should be a little high on nitris every time I play. I’m gonna stock up on whipped cream cans.
