So, I had a root canal this morning. Buy my books!

…I’m going to blame that title on the endorphins. To misquote somebody or other, there is nothing quite so thrilling as finishing up a procedure where they go deep into your tooth to get all the nerves — and realizing that there was no pain during the procedure. Truly, the state of the art has improved greatly since the days of my youth: back then, ‘root canal’ was a pretty good analogy for ‘torture.’ Or possibly just a euphemism.

Still: buy my books! Root canals are also way cheaper than they used to be, but they still ain’t cheap.

PS: Posting may still be weird today. I have no idea how I’m going to be feeling when the local anesthesia wears off.

  1. It’s gonna suck.
    And linger.
    But it’ll be better than what prompted it.


  2. I think perhaps you were alluding to Churchill when he said, “Nothing in life is as exhilarating as to be shot at without result.” Although in your case, a shot was probably helpful.
