Bill Cosby -- The Dentist. From his 1983 show Himself.
Walked out with one less tooth but it was a doozy. He went after that bad boy (his words) bottom right molar. Took 4 shots and he tested it again, this time popping out one root. I still wasn't totally numb (he said I'm wired a little different -- not uncommon-- and they were looking for my lip to go numb) and since there was only one more root to pop out, I told him to go ahead and take it out. He asked me if I was sure and I affirmed and he yanked that puppy out pretty darn quick.
Of course, halfway home and while telling A (who drove) about the procedure, my lip went numb. And stayed numb for a long time. Once it started to wear off, I started to notice my jaw was really really sore. Thank goodness, Dr. T wrote me a rx for some pain pills. I took one and it helped a lot. Coming about due for another one but wanted to get this post done before I took it -- friends don't let friends blog while comfortably numb.
Bill Cosby sure hit the nail on the head about that lower lip thang.
