Trip to the Dentist

Jenna: Future husband? Who did you put in your address book as “Future Husband”?
Liz: I have absolutely no idea.
Jenna: Well, whenever I find something weird in my cell phone, I can usually trace it back to last time I was drunk.
Liz: Oh my God, the dentist’s office!
Jenna: Your dentist gets drunk with you, too?-30 Rock

This is what my smile looked like after I had 4 fillings and a teeth cleaning. I went into Safeway that way and attempted to smile at the cashier which turned out looking like a grimace and I’m pretty sure I drooled a little.
You know what I hate about the dentist as a grown up? No laughing gas. They numb you up with a big ol’ needle that hurts like hell. Bring back the laughing gas! Now I’m sitting here trying to resist drinking a glass of wine at 3pm. What? It numbs the gums.

    I hate going to the dentist. I like HIM as a person. He’s actually my hubs golf partner but wouldn’t it be fun if they served you wine in the waiting room to loosen you up? I think I’ll ask him about that next time. LOVE the pic!!

    Ugh I hate the dentist, not that I’ve ever had much problems there! And it has been super long since I’ve gone! Ha maybe you have inspired me to get my butt in gear! You have such a great smile!

    You look like a movie star in this pic. What else can I say?? Oh — Always drink wine (or something like it) after going to the dentist. Next time you’ll look forward to going.

    I think the dentist should serve wine there too. What a great marketing concept! My Nail Salon serves Margarita’s with a pedicure. Free too.
