Yesterday I had to visit The Torture Chamber.
Nearly everybody deserted The Torture Chamber while I waited patiently for my turn.
I sat quietly and decided to capture this extreme moment with my constant companion ….. the Sony point and shoot!
I was armed and ready to face this moment but alas………..I only managed to get these images to convey the pain and agony I was about to face.
As the executioner and his assistant plunged deeply into my mouth I could only lay passive, grin (no grinning thank you) and bare it.
Opening my eyes occasionally I could see the pleasure they were getting as they drilled and used their tools of destruction to inflict even more …………
They talked and joked of things totally dissociated from the events at hand.
I guess that is how they manage to do their jobs……….cut off all emotion. Still I had plenty for the three of us.
Well finally they invited me to sit up and wash out the remnants of their mayhem. A near impossibility!
Totally numb I spluttered and splat what little water I could manage to suck into my mouth.
As I exited The Torture Chamber my only regret was I will have to return at a future date for even more……..TORTURE!
Footnote : Some might be wondering why I described this experience such. You get needles to numb the pain so what’s the big fuss.
Yes, I did get needles and they did eventually numb the pain (had to get an extra one in fact). But lying flat on your back for an hour being drilled, probed, prodded and pushed, bite here, there, everywhere, etc. etc. was not fun. Then for the next 6 hours with gums that weren’t mine hardly able to talk or eat was not pleasant either….. and I had a good dentist!
Maybe in the future we will be able to visit our friend the dentist who will put us in a state of “temporal freeze” so we can walk out saying that was such a pleasant experience I look forward to returning again soon……work on it scientists please, make it a reality and EVERYONE in the world will be grateful!
So what do you think or feel about The Torture Chamber?
