Actually it did hurt. A lot. This week I had to have a root canal. It was probably the most horrific and excruciating experience of my life. Six shots of novocain couldn't even stop the pain, apparently the infection forming in my nerves was much worse than we had thought... and so began a horrible three hour procedure of getting those nerves out. I won't go into detail, but I figure since I have a bit of a spooky blog, I may as well write a blog post about something gruesome every once in a while, or at least this time. Anyway, thank goodness for loving parents and prescription drugs. In the words of Mischa Barton from the Sixth Sense, "I'm feeling much better now."
