"I here present you, courteous reader, with the record of a remarkable period in my life...."
Yes, I made it through my dentist appointment. In fact, I kind of enjoyed the experience. It reminded me of when I was a kid I slept on the top bunk and occasionally one of my legs would fall asleep. I used to enjoy jumping off the bunk and landing on my numb leg and collapsing to the floor. True story.
Little did I realise, this was a precursor to Numb Chucking:
I've had one local anaesthetic before, but this time got three hits and was numb-er than I've ever been. Not necessarily a bad thing.
