An Epic Encounter

Bloggie friends!!

Today I had my chipped tooth fixed.

Now I know as a wannabe writer of stories I ought to be able to describe as lyrically and poetically as I can a day at the dentist. So here is my writerly take on it.

******************************
My day at the dentist:

OW. Ouchie. Ow. Ow. Ow. OWWWWW!!! That HURT! Please stop. No seriously. Put. That. Needle. Away.

The end
****************************

Charlie says: While you were at the dentist, I was hiding in your clothes.

Have a twirly Tuesday everyone!

I'm with Charlie. Glad you got it fixed, but OW! and PUT THAT NEEDLE AWAY are spot on. Perhaps console yourself with a piece of courgette cake, if there's any left over.

I have a dental appt tomorrow AM, but it's just a regular cleaning. She's rough on my gums with those instruments of torture, though!

*ouch*
I just don't like going to the dentist...I just don't!

Helllllllllllllloooo sweet Charlie.

Sorry for your dental trials, Kitty. I'll be going myself soon, but not for a chipped tooth. Still, I think my hygienist may be a demon in disguise.

I've lurked around your blog before, but I see you so often on all the blogs I frequent that I feel we should be proper bloggy friends.

My oh my, your poem made quite the point. Aint that the tooth.
Penny says, 'I wouldn't hide in Gary's clothes. I mean, do I want to be seen near some old dude's ridiculous flared jeans?'

Steph Sinkhorn said...

That about summarizes my dentist trips, as well. Glad your tooth is all fixed up!

Caren Gittleman said...

The chipped tooth hurt? I had one fixed once and it didn't hurt...which tooth was it?

Have you ever tried the gas at the dentist? I did it for the first time when I had a root canal in the fall and I LOVED IT!! I didn't care what they did! lol

I think Charlie symbolizes YOU wanting to hide by the clothes instead of going to the dentist!!!
((((hugs))))) hope your tooth doesn't hurt!

Clarissa Draper said...

I hear you! I hate the dentist too. I hope you're feeling better soon.

This made me LOL for real! I read it to my husband over the phone and he LOL'ed, too! Bless your heart, at least it's all fixed now.

I'm having a giveaway...come see if there's anything you would like a chance at!

Tracy said...

so glad you got your tooth fixed; how does it feel?
...it's the little things in life, isn't it?

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie might be heard " OW. Ouchie. Ow. Ow. Ow. OWWWWW!!! That HURT! " so he have to be in the safe place : )

Katnip Lounge said...

I think that story would have benefited from some valium and alcohol. Wait...maybe it did...later!

Hope the hurting has stopped. GAH!

Ann Best said...

Is there anyone who likes going to the dentist? I doubt it! So glad you got the tooth fixed. Have a smooth Tuesday!!

m.q said...

great place to hide..we also like to hide inside our human wardrobe

Melissa Gill said...

I'm with Charlie. I'd much rather hide in your clothes closet than go to the dentist. Bad memories from my own chipped tooth at age 14

Jamie Burch said...

Sorry about the dentist. Yikes! Hope you're feeling better by now. *Hugs*

The Chair Speaks said...

Ahhh, Charlie, you felt your mom's fear too.
Please tell your mom that she's more brave than our human who once punched the male dentist and shed tears on the female dentist years later!

Boonie S said...

Aargh - chips with everything.....

I've seen Charlie's behaviour before. A friend of mine used to hide in his wife's clothes when she was out shopping.

Hope your courgette-cake-hole is soon better.

Best wishes from Boonie and Mrs S

Nicole MacDonald said...

So Charlie totally played dress ups while you were away *grin* Hope your feeling better!!

Au and Target said...

Yuck, we hate the dentist. Glad you survived.

Reenie said...

LOL!

That sounds like me at the dentists ;)

Brigid said...

Poor you and well described with just the right amount of dramatic tension.

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Happy New Year! And, Charlie, get out your mum's clothes. You leave hair everywhere. She knows what you've been up to. Smile big, Old Kitty!

fairyhedgehog said...

That's horrible! Your dentist shouldn't hurt you.

Charlie is so cute.

Life 101 said...

I've been putting off a root canal. I hope I can be half as poetic.

The Monkeys said...

Your take on the dentist is about as poetic as it gets!

Charlie, we hide in closets too! Such fun!

Hannah and Lucy said...

The dentist was his usual gentle self then!!
Charlie we didn't know you were a cross dresser!! We like you best "au naturel".
Luv Hannah & Lucy xx xx

Shannon O'Donnell said...

I am so phobic of the dentist! I won't tell you how many times I've hyperventilated right there in the chair! LOL. :-)

Bossy Betty said...

Hope you feel better soon! i just had gum surgery so I can empathize with you.

Brian said...

I think you summed it up beautifully...and so did Charlie!

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles helplessly* Oh, thank you. I needed that.

Marg said...

That is hysterical. That is a lot of Ouchs, that is for sure. I hate the dentist. HOpe you said some norty words to that dentist.
Charlie that looks like a good place to have a nap. Hope you both have a fun day.

Rene said...

Dentists are crummy, but we hope your tooth looks like new now. I'm sure Charlie welcomed you back home!

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh no mum and my hated place..Hope you are ok.. Hugs GJ x

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

Our Mom knows how you feel!
Glad it is over..

Lynda Young said...

I hope the ow has gone

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Good for you to have a dazzling smile back, but sad that it hurt.

Ann said...

Sounds very descriptive to me. Just like my visit to the dentist.

Kat_RN said...

Great writing style! Seriously, to the point. Anyone who can write about a trip to the dentist and still manage to make me smile is great. Thanks.
