Soooo I was at the dentist today to get some fillings and crown work, one of my favorite things! I wrote in the past about a horrible experience with Strip Mall Dentistry but we have changed and we have a new dentist and we love love love the new Dentist. The rooms are clean, the office is pretty, the Receptionist is lovely, she smiles and talks to me like we are friends, the Dentist is gentle and doesn't stab me in the lips, the list of great stuff goes on and on and on.
I came home with a fat lip and sore gums and the advice to take some ibuprofen to help with the pain should I experience discomfort later on in the day. I gummed some soft and squishy food for lunch so as not to eat my bottom lip or tongue by accident and then sat down at the computer.
I'm sitting there and I feel this stabbing feeling in my rear end. I remember the doctor's words and so I get up and go get 2 ibuprofen and take them for the pain and go sit back down at the computer. I feel the same stabbing pain but it is still in my butt and not in my gums. I am in the living room, I stand up and quickly strip off my pants and notice that something shiny has fallen to the floor. My 8 year old is sitting on the couch giving me the strangest look and laughing at me because I have stripped off my pants and now I'm standing in the living room in my birthday suit, from the waist down.
Yup, it was a drill bit that fell out of my pants. Somehow it worked its way into my pants while I was at the dentist. The hard part of this story is figuring out how it got into my pants in the first place. I'm pretty sure I didn't put it in my pants.
Then I decide to call the dentist and ask the Receptionist if I should bring back in the drill bit, maybe they need it for a future procedure, but of course she was laughing so hard both when I told her the story and when she came back on the line to tell me to throw it away that I could tell that this is not a call they get very often. Apparently they keep lots of these drill bits on hand and the one I have is not that important. Especially after it has been in my pants.
