Root Canal Torture and Margaritas

Helga : Me, Mom and Dad are supposed to visit my grandma in South Dakota.
Arnold: Sounds like fun.
Helga: I’d rather have a root canal. –Hey Arnold!

This week has been incredibly dull and also painful! I had a root canal on Wednesday. It was pretty awful, but the endodontist I went to tried to make it as nice of an experience as one can have while be tortured while awake. He let me pick out a dvd, they set me up with headphones and I was able to watch a movie while they drilled away at my molar. I watched The Holiday, one of my favorites, and tried not to think about the fact that he was poking a giant needle into the roof of my mouth (shudder).

Besides the torturing, things have been fairly uneventful. Work has been so slow. My coworker did help me come up with a cute wedding favor idea. Taking some labels from the office, we created these adorable circle labels from a picture of me and Match smooching, with our names and the wedding date below our faces. We found some old plastic gift baggies that the office didn’t need, and so she came up with the idea of slapping the labels on them, and filling the baggies with hersey’s kisses, tying them with chocolate colored ribbon, and voila! Instant favors, that didn’t cost more than a costco bag of hersey’s kisses! I didn’t even waste ink because we printed the labels on our office’s ls4278 scanner/printer. I know I know, using office supplies for personal use is bad, but I hate my job so I don’t really care. Plus, the labels were old, and so were the baggies. So the only real crime was the ink.

Other than that, not a whole lot has been going on this week. The highlight was going to happy hour with Match and our dear friend The Reverend. That’s his nickname since, you guessed it, he’s getting ordained online and marrying us! I love that we’re having a close friend marry us and not some stranger. We had a great time visiting and catching up over margaritas and beer. The Rev was cracking up at me and Match and the way we tease and joke around with each other. He said we need to get our own reality show because we’re entertaining. The sad part is we weren’t even trying. Match was just being incredibly silly because he hasn’t been out in public in awhile. πŸ™‚ I have to say that margarita really helped me forget my mouth pain from the root canal, at least temporarily! Guess I’m going to have to go out drinking all weekend til it heals. Oh darn. πŸ˜‰

What have you been up to this week? Anyone out there ever have a root canal?

    ACK! I’ve never had a root canal, but I had to have a tooth “exposed” when I was a teenager because it wouldn’t come in on it’s own. Then had to dig it out of my jaw. There were about 10 shots into the roof of my mouth. I vividly remember that pain! Thank goodness I had the twilight sleep when my wisdom teeth had to come out.

    Hope you don’t have any more root canals in your future!

    My husband and I tease each other TONS, too…some people take us way too seriously and think we’re really upset with each other. It’s hilarious! lol

    I’ve never had a root canal, but just the thought of it makes me nauseous.
