Have You Met My Friend Vicodin...


So Wednesday morning at 11:30am, 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment, I finally sat down in Dr. Merlow's chair.

After two weeks of hearing the horror stories of people having their wisdom teeth removed I was finally feeling the IV put into my left arm. I have never been given a non local anesthesia to and all I could think of was that movie where the guy is put to sleep during surgery but doesn't go all the way to sleep and feels every moment of the surgery. I actually think I was more afraid of the anesthesia than having my cute Italian doctor ripping four teeth out of my mouth.

Well after the prick of the IV, the next thing I remembered was the nurse removing the oxygen from my nose. It was over. No excruciating pain... just a lil woosy as my friend Domo walks in to take me home with a much needed stop at Smoothie King since I wasn't able to eat since dinner the night before.

I now sit on my couch with Haagen Dazs Caramel Cone, Vitamin Water and my friend Vicodin... wishing for some Baja Fresh, Five Guys, or Matchbox.

Sorry you're not feeling good. I had teeth pulled last year. Not fun.

But it will be a memory really soon as the mouth tends to heal pretty quickly.

You'll make it though. You're tough guy. I believe in the power of you! Keep fisting the Vicodin and Smoothie King and I SWEAR you won't feel a thing!

All I can says is AYE! for drugs. I can not do pain at all. But pulling a wisdom tooth is really bad. How you feeling now?

I love drugs. Enjoy them while they last. Btw, if you have any to spare I'll gladly take them off your hands....
