I had the root canal today. It took about an hour. The thing that hurt the most was getting poked in the tongue with the Novocaine needle. Luckily it was a quiet day at work as I spent most of it numb and drooling a little. I don't want to chew, but otherwise there isn't a lot of discomfort. Dinner was a dish of nice soft pasta. We'll see how it feels tomorrow. But I don't expect much trouble. I just don't have the mental energy to be more entertaining right now.
