So I had to get some work done at the dentist today. The numbing gel had a really strong scent, but I couldn’t quite place it. It was very strong, though, and tasted vile. When I told them it tasted gross, the dentist said, “Yeah, that bubblegum flavor is pretty strong.” My response? “Gah! Bubblegum?! I hate bubblegum!” I didn’t recognize it because it’s been ages since I’ve had the stuff. Also, as an adult, I was not expecting bubblegum-flavored anything at the dentist’s office. That’s for kids, isn’t it? Anyway…they’re putting a note in my file: “hates bubblegum”. Thank you.
Now I have to wait for the novacaine to wear off before I can eat something that tastes good. Sigh.
So what’s the last flavor you’d ever want the dentist to put in your mouth? Bubblegum? Cherry? Orange? Piña Colada? (Seriously, I was told that last one is an option.)
