On Friday I’ve got an appointment to get an ingrown toenail taken care of. I’d like to say “no thanks” to the novacaine injection. Those things hurt so damn much I can’t imagine the procedure to be any worse, but I’m kind of concerned I might be getting in over my head. I don’t want to be crying like a baby or swearing like a sailor. I’m not sure which is more likely.
I’ve always chickened out in the past, except for the time I got a dislocated pinky set. That was a breeze. By the time I got into the emergency clinic it was already numb from the trauma.
Speaking of that, I wish I had just been man enough to set it myself right when it happened. It probably would be less trauma to do it right away before any swelling set in. Same with when I broke my nose.
Ok, bottom line, I want to hear from the manly men on here who have set their own broken bones, stitched their own wounds or looked at a nurse like she was crazy when she went to shoot you up with pain killer. Maybe someone’s gone Tom Hanks with an infected tooth?
Come on guys, get me pumped up for this!
