Dissing the Dentist at 20:11

What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... No picture today, because it's not a pretty sight. I went to the dentist today which is on my top 10 things I hate to do... But this trip was particularly painful. Allow me to explain.

Several years ago I got very sick after eating fish tacos. I don't know if it was the tacos themselves, or just the last thing I ate before contracting the stomach flu... but to make a long story short they didn't last long. I haven't been able to eat or even think about fish tacos since.

So back to the dentist. Today while I was in the chair, they offered me the TV and the remote. They pulled the TV close to the chair, but I didn't change the channel... figuring I wouldn't be able to watch while they were filling my cavities. That's when the real torture began.

As the dentist was drilling a cooking show came on... and guess what the the host was preparing...? Yeah, you guessed it. Fish. Tacos. There I was... utterly helpless and undergoing two different forms of torture. I tried, and tried to concentrate on the noise of the drilling or ANYTHING besides the TV... but it was no use. I could hear her loud and clear.

So here I am... at 8:11 and my mouth is finally back to normal with all of the numbness finally gone. (My appointment was at 3:00.) I'm eating dinner (now that I can do so safely) and pouting about my latest dental experience.
