Well, I have to say I *like* your solution to visits to the dentist, Miss Marcia!! And I'm glad you got through your latest appt. so painlessly!! I missed my last appt., had 'flu and now I *keep forgetting* to make a new one!! What a silly billy I am!!
However, here in Scotland, things are a little different. They won't give us nitrous without a doctor present. What we can request is a sedative which is taken 1/2 hour before appt. and I can assure you, that is pretty painless too (*~@!!). But the dentists tend to rub a gel into your gum so that you don't feel the jab, if you need one. And it works *very* well!
However, I have to say that my dentist is excellent! You never feel a thing! His jabs are really pain-free!! (You could say he really has 'the touch'!) But also, he has the walkman setup and - ta!ta! a video screen on the ceiling! So - I'm thinking of your idea but taking it a step further!! - I'm taking my video of LOTM with me next time!! Trouble is, I haven't needed any work done the last few times, so (fingers crossed, I think!!)I may not have time to see anything but the opening credits, possibly the Elk Hunt (still, he *is* my favourite star, of course, so I see the *best* bit!), however, I can always go home and watch the rest, 'cause you can't leave your tape in the middle of the spool! You watch the rest or rewind (and you certainly can't do that!). Anyway, anyone who makes it through a dental appt. deserves to see LOTM, that's what I say!
Now, get out to all those dentists, guys and gals and give the old 'LOTM' soundtrack/video an airing! You might even make those visits a twice yearly thing!! (maybe).
