Hi! ...or should I say "High"

I spent hours in the dentist chair yesterday evening for a rather intense deep cleaning and a filling and well... I kinda of feel beat up. Have you ever been hit in the jaw with a sledgehammer? No me neither, but I imagine the pain I'm feeling now is akin to that.

But God love my dentist, before I left she sent me away with a prescription for pain meds. Remembering all they had done while I lay numb, I thought it best to get the prescription filled immediately. So I headed to the Walgreens across the street.

After waiting in Walgreens for what seemed like seventy hundred hours getting odd looks from people who saw only a messy haired lady (damn the dental chair for giving me bed head) with a perma frown on the left side drooling and not realizing it; I got the coveted meds.

Once I arrived home I popped one of those little suckers, said goodnight to the hubby and kids and lay down in bed.
In no time flat the tv show I'd been watching became the most wonderful show ever. And my socks. Well those were the most comfortably warm and cozy socks ever. I even looked down at my feet to see which ones I was wearing and made a mental note to buy more. And my blankets, well they felt as if they were sent from the Gods.
I was warm and cozy and never wanted that moment to end. My kids, who I could hear arguing with hubby about going to bed were the most wonderful kids in the world. And hubby , well he was the most amazing man that ever lived. Ever.
I smiled to myself at what a perfect life I have and how lucky I am.

I woke up late this morning but having slept incredibly well. As hubby and I stood at our sinks getting ready, I recalled how amazing I felt but didn't know why.

I relayed the story to hubby who began to laugh.

"Dear" he said, "You took a vicodin last night...don't you remember?"

And then it hit me like a ton of bricks: I WM, 35 year old mom, wife and career woman had gotten utterly and completely high last night.

Ahhh Vicodin. I got that once about a year ago. It does that to a sista'. Sometimes I wish it lasted longer. ;)

Coming out of lurking for this one! I've never had vicodin, but wow! I think I understand why people just might get hooked.....

I've hoarded the last of my c-section pain meds just for this reason. . .I might need to get high again sometime. I can totally get how people get addicted.

Ha! I was always scared to take it!! I gave, er, THREW away a whole bottle because I'd heard lots of people get sick. If you knew all the other sorts of drugs I had put into my body, you'd be shocked to hear this. Now I'm mad I missed out on UberComfortInAPill.

Queen of Shake-Shake said...

I want one of those pills!

Doozie said...

The Milk Maid said...

My crazy dentist likes to fill "small" cavities without novacane- let alone giving me anything for the agony that follows!

Worker Mommy said...

Dooz- Really ?...I might be able to sneak out Friday !


Milk Maid- If I may be so blunt -what the hell is wrong w/your dentist ? Actually, I'm beginning to worry about mine. She gave me 25 of those little pills. I was thinking damn, is my mouth going to hurt for that long...*sigh*

Whiskeymarie said...

I want to know who your dentist is so I can start going there.
Sweet, sweet vicodin...

Life As I Know It said...

I had a prescription for Vicodin after I got my wisdom tooth out last month, but never filled it. Now I'm wishing I did...

CDP said...

Oh my, I did love me the Vicodin after my c-section. I can completely see how people get addicted.

andi said...

I've never tried this magical Vicodin. Clearly, I'm missing out on something.

The Milk Maid said...

My dentist is a freak- he believes that grinding surface cavaties wont hit any nerves. I think he went to dental school at k-m*rt, seariously. I actually haven't been in a year because of this :|

Dang this small town!

Maureen said...

And WHAT, pray tell, are you going to do TONIGHT???

;)

I'll have to remember that the next time I am dragged kicking and screaming to the dentist.

Southern Fried Mom said...

Is it wrong that I'm jealous of you right now?

Inarticulate Fumblings said...

Right on! The best part is, you don't have to feel guilty about it. It was prescribed. Woo Hoo!

I'm a big fan of my dentist, too. I sleep with him every night. :)

Virtualsprite said...

I love it! I have some muscle relaxants from my doctor that do much the same thing. I have to fight with myself not to take them every night. :-)

Worker Mommy said...

Inarticulate Fumblings- You must get really good drugs then ;)

Nan said...

Hey, our babies get rocked to sleep; who's to say WE shouldn't get STONED!

HA HAAA! I crack myself up!

Biddy said...

god bless vicodin. they should sell that instead of prozac

Vicodin...I take 6 a day, but trust me it's never as good as the first time. The euphoria wears off and then you're left with the withdrawal.
