Nervous Humor

“Now, most dentist’s chairs go up and down, don’t they? The one I was in went back and forwards. I thought ‘This is unusual’. And the dentist said to me ‘Mr Vine, get out of the filing cabinet.” – Tim Vine

I’m heading to the dentist today to have a wisdom tooth pulled. They (dentists) have been telling me for years that it really should come out. I made an appointment a year ago to have it pulled and then canceled the appointment. It isn’t bothering me. When it comes to dental work I think the familiar saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” should apply. A couple months ago my dentist brought the subject up again. This time she was a little more adamant and said, “trust me you don’t want to wait until it is giving you problems”.

I’ve never minded going to the dentist because I haven’t experienced any horror stories. But, I am slightly nervous today. I’ve never had a tooth pulled.

I sure hope I can find the right chair.
