why do they do that?
So, I had a dentist appointment last week. Thanks to bad dental genes and grad school years without insurance, I have a significant amount of dental work that needs to be done. I started Thursday and during a cleaning, the hygienist points out a gap in my teeth I need to pay attention to. I mumble ('cause her hands and instruments are in my numb mouth) "where?"; to which she replies, "here, where I'm working." I point out that as my mouth is numb I have no idea where that is! She, who numbed me, seemed surprised by this information. Sigh.
