Old Time Dentist

When I went to the dentist when I was young, if I had a filling done  I never got novocaine.  I just had to grin and bear it.  I never knew about novocaine until I was an adult.  When you had to have something more serious done you got "laughing gas".  

There was a grocery store across the street.  One time I went into the dentist and mom went to the store.  I was supposed to meet her in the car when I was done.  I don't remember what he did but I needed "laughing gas".  

When I was done, I walked across the street to the car.  At that time, you never had to lock your cars doors.  I opened the door and laid on the back seat because I was woozy.  As I was waiting for Mom to come out of the store,  all of a sudden I noticed that the car seats had different material on them.  I got up and realized I was in the wrong car LOL.

I was so grateful that the person that belonged to the car didn't come before I got out.  How embarrassing would that have been ;-)

I just went to the dentist earlier this week. I had 4 cavities filled and or refilled. I thank the Lord above for the person that made Novocaine. I would have to be knocked out otherwise!

You were very lucky indeed.
