Whats worse than a root canal?

Whats worse than a root canal? True story!

So  I was at the dentist today getting a root canal.  Each chair has its own TV which I thought was pretty nice. In all honesty, the root canal was not as bad as the deep cleaning last month, except for the dentist sticking that hockey puck thing in my  mouth.  I suppose that was to keep me from biting his finger off if he hit a nerve or something.

Anyway, as I was in the chair and the dentist was poking, grinding, numbing, away I was thinking "Is there anything worse than a root canal?" About then I realized there was.

The View was on TV.

 Definitely.... getting a root canal while watching The View is worse than a root canal all alone!

Bob....LOL funny!  that program would be high on our list & you can take that to the bank;
   question--just where was this TV positioned & how did they keep all the 'spray-outs' from blurring the program [ of course with the View being "On", maybe blurring was an improvement.]  At least your day HAD to go up from there, Right?  You really brightened mine so far & when Sal gets home from his KW class, it will brighten his too, Thanks

I guess I could have asked to change the channel but it was hard to talk with that hockey puck thing in my mouth.  :-)


There were actually 2 TV's.  On one the wall and one in the ceiling.  There was just no missing it!

Bob, I do believe that I'd rather gnaw off my right leg than have to watch the view. On the other hand, root canal, deep root scaling...piece of cake!

LOL Bob.  They should make the Gitmo prisoners watch that program...they'd all sing for sure.  Thanks for the laugh!

I will never watch the View.  They are disgusting.

Bob - I can one up you - How about Keith Oberman on MSNBC talking about Scott Brown in MA. Beck just showed his rant and I will never....NEVER watch NBC Pre Game shows for football as long as he is on. He is a MORON!

I cant even imagine.  A root canal and Keith Oberman?  Just shoot me...

Bob...I'll add one the View, Root Canal, and a Dentist with uncontrollable body odor...feel better now?

Bob...Maybe the idea was the pain of The View would overshadow the pain from the root canal.
