In an hour I'll be flat on my back with a guy sticking things in my mouth. No, there's no oral secks in the offing. Just a dental appointment to have an inlay replaced. A huge needle will be repeatedly made to penetrate my flesh and inject novocain, and once numbness results the old inlay will be gouged out and then the decayed portion of tooth ground away, releasing a smelly vapor, and then the resulting vacancy, once cleaned out, will be filled with an amalgam of deadly mercury and precious silver. I probably won't die. Then I'll come home and wait for the numbness to wear off, after which it may or may not hurt. Oh, the fun!
