Bizarro (4/30/10)

I’m lucky in that I haven’t had a lot of dental surgery. I had one cavity as a child and four cavities last year (apparently orange juice is bad for your teeth). Between those fillings, I had my wisdom teeth extracted; all five of them at once. At no time during any of those procedures was I offered helium. I was given either Novocaine or, in the case of my wisdom teeth, some sort of intravenous anesthesia. That’s a shame, since the prospect of nodding off to laughing gas seems downright pleasant, especially when the only alternative is getting poked with a needle.
