After putting off a trip to the dentist for the best part of a year, today was the day for having a new crown fitted. To distract from me from the impending pain of an injection the nurse tried begun the usual chatter about holidays etc. Usually this tactic wouldn’t work, especially with a giant needle heading towards me, but she said the magic words ‘Cornwall’, ‘holiday’ and ‘cottage’ and all of a sudden I was full of questions and interest.
All these questions sort of spat out through the numb, cotton wool filled, cheeks,… so am I obsessed???
Just for the record the crown is now installed but I am still numb as I write this!
