Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises


What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]

I have to go to the dentist today; to have a procedure that may or may not be a root canal.

I don't want to go to the dentist today, for any procedure.  I hate the dentist.

Laugh at me all you want, but I'm taking a teddy bear with me.

Actually, I'm very happy with this dentist; as I will be posting to the main journal shortly.

I'm also not the only adult who brings plush toys to the office.

I took my iPod and big over-the-ear headphones to help cut out the noise. :)

I couldn't do that; I have a tendency to bite down, so I need to be able to hear the dentist. :)

Ah, that's why I had the remote and "mute" button in my hand the whole time. It worked out pretty well.


I'm not laughing.

I'm considering doing the same the next time I have to go. I cry almost every time I have to be worked on.

Do it. It really helps.

I don't necessarily cry, but I have strong fight or flight inclinations and then when I leave the dentist's office all I want to do is sleep for a couple of hours.

well, my thing is when they start at me with a needle (slight needle phobia comes into play), the tears just start sliding out. Maybe if I had something in my hands, it wouldn't be so bad...

I think it was from the time I had to have my baby canines taken out by the dentist-- HORRIBLE experience. He hit the nerve in my gum with the needle, and had the audacity to tell me, "Big girls don't cry". So here I was, all of friggin' seven or eight with a big case of You Do What The Doctor Tells You, trying not to shriek with tears just streaming from my eyes into my hair.

I was pretty good with the oral surgeon-- he seranaded me with Frank Sinatra. I only got buggy at the very last, and he was so cool with it...

but yeah. Opus comes with me, no matter what.
