Oooh, hello Mr. Endodontist! Is that a gas mask? I love you.

I had a root canal last Friday, and can I just say that my third husband will be a dentist/endodontist, basically, anyone that can get my ass nitric whenever I want it. Because that shit is fucking awesome! I was in the chair for close to 2 hours, and I was given the gas mask at about 15 minutes, and was sucking that shit down for 1 3/4 hours. I had the assistant up it once because I loved the weightlessness/easiness/floatiness/high-as-a-kite feeling it gave me so much. At first, I was a bit freaked out, everything was moving slow, the endodontist who was less than 6 inches from my face sounded like he was miles away. But once I got past that and really let the feeling take over, I was in pure blissful heaven.

I was floating through weird places, basically on a legal acid trip. And, no, I have never done acid. But I know lots and lots of people who have and this was like what they describe.

I go back to the dentist on Friday to get fitted for a crown, and I'm crossing my fingers that I have to get another root canal. Jay is having 2 done, but is going to a different endodontist closer to his job, but I'm trying to talk him into going to my guy. I'm hoping there is a referral bonus paid in nitric hits.

I'm so jealous. I've never had a root canal, nor do I want one, but I wouldn't mind a hit of that stuff.

Welcome back! Missed you!

I seriously need my wisdom teeth out, but I'm too afraid to the oral surgeon. I mean, I know he'll put me completely under but imagine my embarrassment if he doesn't even TRY to fondle me...

Sorry about your root canal but glad you made lemonade out of that particular batch of lemons...

Whatever you do, don't buy a case of canned whipped topping to get at the nitrous - often called Whippets.
