Ninja Novocain...


Friday, I had to lead a meeting with both sides of my face numb after - yaaaaaaaaaaaay! - the last periodontal hell appointment.

Oddly enough, it was the most assertive I have ever been in a meeting.

I even used the word "clusterfuck," although I prefaced it with, "Pardon this expression, but that would be a..."

Usually I am pretty mellow in meetings, but that day, I wanted to get the hell out of there and go home. I was in no mood for fucking around or appeasing anyone. Afterwards, my board president called and said, "I wanted to tell you how impressed I was with the way you led that meeting! You didn't let anyone get off track!"

Me: "You should see how I handle things in my personal life."

My dad, who has graciously paid for all of the outrageous co-pays on said dental work - they are literally more than 10 times as much as the regular co-pay - said, "At least you didn't have both sides of your brain numbed. Then you would have been voting Republican!"

I'm thinking maybe I should get Novocain before every future meeting. What do you think?

I don't know about you needing Novocain for every meeting, but I sure as hell could do with some!

Sounds like it helped, big time! :)

Joey: I'll give you my hygienist's address ;)
L: I suppose it was being relaxed (or rather, not giving a fuck) that did it - which is helping, yes :)
I: Hahaha! I think they definitely perked up after that...

oh to someday be involved in a metting where someone does not disprove the ridiculous axiom "there are no dumb questions".

Likem, when the professor says, "On your syllabus, it tells you there will be 5 quizzes with 5 questions each" and some alleged university student raises there hand to ask, "How many quizzes will there be?"

Frankly, that question, at that point in time, is so dumb they should be thrown out of class and flunked.

And to have professional meetings with the same nonsense going on...grr.

If God meant for you to have your teeth fixed, you would have been born with little toothbrushes for fingers.

Saying "clusterfuck" in a meeting will lead to complete moral breakdown, sex with space aliens, and is an attack on the institution of marriage.

I don't even think you're a citizen.

PS--hahahaha! My security word is "bosom"! I love it!

Darth: I totally disprove that! I wish more people thought like you and I when it comes to meetings...
FB: You found me out!! OMG! ;)
