I just got back from the dentist. I caught a gum infection a few weeks ago. He gave me a prescription that cleared it up, but I had to go back for some cleaning work. I sat down in the dentist chair and was pretty comfortable until he pulled out a big, huge needle. That was NOT part of the plan! He said, “You don’t want the novocain? I will need it to complete the work.” I didn’t want it, but I figured I didn’t have much of a choice. After he began working, I was glad that I agreed to cooperate. Didn’t hurt at all.
