Yes, I Stole It *



* from I Can Has Cheezburger.com. Isn't it funny?! Don't you look like that after novocaine?

It reminded me of when I went to the dentist last month. She had to drill out and replace an old filling in a tooth that had become not only sensitive, but painful when chewing - but only on an intermittent basis. It hurt about once every 3-4 days. Since the filling was replaced, it has hurt every single time I eat. I sure wish I could go back in time to when she said I needed the filling replaced. I'd have hightailed it out of there!

In Monday's post I mentioned the good General Tso's chicken I had at the Asian buffet restaurant on Sunday night. Come Monday morning, I wasn't nearly so enamored of it, considering what it did to my digestive tract. I guess we won't be going back there anytime soon! Or until I forget that last meal .....lol

This morning, after sleeping in until 9am (should I be ashamed?), I went out on the deck to clean out the pool skimmer, and found another frog. You'll see him tomorrow. Also saw four more deer in the woods, but the photo - fuzzy at best - only shows one of them. I took six pix, but only one was barely good enough to show. My camera is good, but it can only do so much. More about that, tomorrow!

I'm back! It took another week after two weeks of vacation to get back in the groove. Hey, I sleep until 9 whenever I can--and have occasionally felt like the giraffe looks without novacaine.

Bad luck about that filling Judy, everyones favourite people .... dentists, also bad luck about the chicken!!!

Judy: try my preventative for indigestion after a special meal.Take a small digestif: a liqueur. The one recommended to me by a Cordon Bleu was Kirsch which isn't always available over here but peach brandy,Grand Marnier,Cointreau are all OK.
Cheers!

Hope the teething problems are resolved very soon.

Even in the midst of dental mania, you commented on my blog!! Thanks for your experience. I worry about strokes and heart attacks, all those surprise horrible things that could happen. Dee has 3 years before medicare and I have 5. We're trying to be very careful so we can last until medicare kicks in. People complain about medicare, but anything will be better than nothing!

Ouch, I had a dentist warn me of what happened to you but fortunately it didn't happen. So sorry it did to you. Hope there is a solution.
So sorry about that "foul" chicken. Yuck, I can't even drive past a place that does that to me.
Hope you are on an upswing now.

General Tso is the boy's fav around here. I HATE the dentist. He broke the tooth that needed a root canal and I lost the tooth!!!

I haven't been to the dentist but I did look just like that when I got up this morning:)

I think some Chinese restaurants use a spice or additive that upsets lots of peoples tummies. Blech!

I wish I could sleep until 9:00, but I guess I'd have to go to bed much later than I do.

I could be wrong about this, but I don't think your tooth is supposed to hurt every time you eat. Good luck with that.

I feel your "tooth" pain, Judy...So sorry that it is worse now!
And not such a good dinner after all....OY!

That is a great picture! I nust go to that link now....!

If I had pain while eating, then maybe I would not eat so much or so often. That could be a great new weight loss thing. Instead of stomach stapling or some other major thing, just make it hurt to eat.

I hope your tooth pain is over soon. I joked about it, but I truly hope your pain is resolved soon.

Sorry about your tooth pain.....did they say it was just temporary? ohhh I don't know what I'd do if Chinese food were to make me sick...it is my favorite!
