I'm a total weenie.

So last Friday, I went to the dentist for my bi-annual teeth cleaning and you-should-really-floss scolding session, and discovered--holy crap--that I've got not one, but TWO cavities that need to be filled. And tomorrow's the day I go under the drill. Gulp. You see, I've managed to get to the age of 36 without ever having had a cavity or a filling. The most I've ever had "done" to my teeth is braces, my wisdom teeth out, and two porcelain crowns put on the front two choppers for vanity reasons. But drilling? In to my damn teeth?! Oh my gawd. I'm already freaking out about it. I'm going to be a mess by the time of my appointment in the morning. Luckily, the dentist said that "we caught 'em early" so that they'll be shallow fillings. I think I'm going to take a Xanax before I go, and take my rock-show earplugs to dull the sound of my teeth being drilled in to like a damn coal mine. Wish me luck.

On a totally random note: David Letterman is on the background. He's doing one of those "talk to the audience" skits, and he was just speaking to this semi-hot Norwegian guy named Jonathan. Dave asked, "Do they have fijords in Norway?" Jonathan, of course says, "Yes." And then Dave says, "Do they also have Oldsmobiles?"
Oh Dave. You Midwestern cornball you...

As a dental procedure veteran (including two root canals on the SAME TOOTH!)here is my sage advice: ASK FOR THE GAS. Really. Whatever it costs. It's alot of fun. You'll love everyone. Last time I went to the dentist just as an excuse to get the gas...
Seriously you'll be fine. Dentists are no worry, it's those damn gynos I'm afeard of.
