agony of elephantine proportions

so, the emergency work on the root canal last week didn't solve the pain problem and I've been

oh, I'm moaning!

oops, sorry
*note to self*
the short story is - it was the tooth next along; had an abcess on it (imagine the image above, only upside down and that pointy thing going into your eye socket, and you might be with me on this one); one and a half hours yesterday, more today, then a replacement crown; g*d knows how many ££££££s from my now rather empty bank account to lie in a chair and gaze at my gorgeous dentist while he thrusts hard (metal) things in and out of my mouth
what's a girl to do?
(no, seriously, what is a girl to do?)

I'm glad you put the bit in parenthesis in, as I might otherwise have thought you were being rude.

I used to have a very sexy dentist when I lived in Brighton. I never mastered the art of algolagnia, but there was something very enjoyable about being completely in her control.

Oops, I forgot to answer your question. You've achieved penetration, now you can move on to the fun stuff.

I, like the view, still said...

dave. . . moi? surely not

gordie when he told me what was up, I refused to open my mouth for quite a few minutes and turned away from him

he was very patient with me and waited until I had calmed down a little (he kept saying "do you want to be out of pain?")(quite an affective persuasion technique)(didn't work - still in huge pain)

I, like the view, still said...

cheeky - slipping that in when I wasn't paying attention!

<---not my fault

It's hard to reposition fingers on the keyboard in the dark after you've been holding your face in sympathy pain.

*holding face and wincing again*


I, like the view, still said...

it's put my emotional pain into perspective, I can tell you

Oh dear and OWWWWWW!
I believe the inside of the mouth is some sort of tardis. There's so much more in there than there could possibly be space for!
Especially the tusks.
Oh I do hope the dentist has sorted it by now.
Sending you essence of cloves.
