Friday Funnies – You’ll Laugh, I Didn’t


I had quite the afternoon yesterday. I had an appointment at the dentist for my favourite thing, a root canal. At the 2:20 mark of a 2 and a half hour appointment, the dentist stops, gets up and walks out, muttering that he will have to close up the work and refer me to a specialist. A bit perturbed, I was wondering the H E double hockey sticks had just happened. Was I going to die, did he hit my brain with those pokey looking needles. Nope, none of the above. He was just about finished when suddenly the tip broke off the file while in my root canal. This could not be good. Apparently, it happens on occasion, but he can’t remove it himself, so off to a specialist I go, thankfully on his nickel.

Getting a Root Canal!

So, he closes up, puts in a temporary filling and off I go. I get to my car and hop in. Start her up and back out and…whoaaaa…. a completely flat tire. Being the type of guy I am, I started laughing. This only happens in the movies.

I was only a 100 feet from an air pump at a filling station, so filled it up, headed to a tire shop a block away, had it fixed in 30 minutes and was on my way. Tons of fun.

So, how was your day?

  1. Whoa. At least you could laugh about it. I’d have done the same, but with a cigarette too.
    If you’re mouth can take it, grab a beer or a glass of wine. You earned it, and I hope you’re weekend is more relaxing.

  2. one of my all-time faves! thanks for this… it’s been a while!

  3. A gripping life

    I’m glad I’m not the only one in root canal hell. I’m sorry you had such a miserable day. You know what they say, “When it rains, it pours.”
    Have a great weekend, John, you deserve it.

  4. Unlucky! Hmm have you checked your karma lately? Hah just kidding. At least you were able to laugh and handle it well! I would have started crying once I knew I had to get a root canal!

  5. No, no, no! Your story is not a laughing matter at all. I hate dentists. Watching the movie u so delightfully inserted scared the crap out of me…

  6. If that happened to me, I’d just crawl into bed and shut everything off. I hate dentists to begin with.
