I have a bag of frozen peas on my face.
I need a root canal. How do I know this? Experience.
I don't have a dentist. Why? Experience(s) I don't like dental work so I wait until the pain I feel out of the dentist's office exceeds the pain I will deal with in the office. I'm there.
I have a big, fat, stupid infected tooth. My face is swollen. It hurts. So, I called a dentist at the end of the day of course - duh! I have to take antibiotics to get the infection down, then be pre-medicated before any work because of the heart thing.
This was on my to-do list. It was even somewhere in the middle. I didn't need a kick in the butt or face in this case to get this done. Okay well maybe I did.
So, tonight it's peas, please. Taylor said, Hey Mom, say peas.
