Life Lesson #423084: Always go to the dentist on a full stomach because you have no idea when you will be able to eat again. :/

This morning I was finally made it back to the dentist office after last Fridayโ€™s waiting room fiasco. The goal was to have two fillings done and be back at my desk within the hour. Goal completed.

Only problem was my appointment was at 10:00am and by the time lunch rolled around my mouth was still numb from the novacain. ๐Ÿ™ I waited as long as I could, but my grumbling tummy forced me to eat my lunch with a numb tongue.

I may not have been able to really taste how good my food was, but my tummy didnโ€™t care either way. Food is food to my tummy, whether it tastes good or not. ๐Ÿ™‚


It really is a shame my taste buds were numb because my lunch included an extra special surprise that was delivered yesterday.


I was the lucky winner of Heatherโ€™s Cherry Chocolate Scones in Bobbiโ€™s Bake sale for a cause the other week.


Heather was sweet enough to send a few other goodies in addition to the scones.




I brought a scone to nibble on at lunch.


From what I could taste this scone was crumbly and chcolately, but I hate to give any real opinion until my mouth is in full working order. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also had a big beautiful salad of spinach, artichoke hearts, beets, mushrooms, and cheese.



Raspberry dressing for fork dipping.




No tongues were lost in the eating of this meal.;)


Eventually my mouth came to again and I treated myself to a small piece of office birthday cake. I was happy I could actually taste and enjoy this. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Strawberries in the middle = my favorite! ๐Ÿ™‚

T-minus 2 hours until the three day weekend begins!!! Yippee!!!

Yum! What a great giveaway to win:)

Gah, it sucks being numb after the dentist! I once ate when I was numb, and I chewed a big hole in my mouth – VERY painful when the injetcion had worn off!
Have a great time at SATC tonight ๐Ÿ™‚

I seriously love office birthday cake. Well, the icing anyway. I wish I didn’t, but I look forward to it every time we have it!

My husband allowed me to eat pizza after having a root canal (and having 3 Xanax). I blame him for the bitten lip and tongue.


7 Melissa May 28, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Glad you finally had a successful appointment!

Guess that means you get to eat lots of pudding, ice cream and milkshakes!

I hate numb tongues! I always bite it like 50 times and then my mouth is sore for dayss. The scone looks delish tho!

The last time I had two fillings done, I was numb from the time I got my novocaine shot at 4:30 until 9:30 at night. It was awful.

Cherry and chocolate is one of the best combinations in baked goods! Have fun at the movie tonight ๐Ÿ™‚

Too bad about the dentist, but the weekends almost here and that’s good, right?


13 Anna May 28, 2010 at 3:01 pm

Ahhh, office birthday cake. The best part of working at an office, right? ๐Ÿ™‚


14 fitandfortysomething May 28, 2010 at 3:22 pm

15 Kellie May 28, 2010 at 3:23 pm

I love scones. Blueberry are my favorite.


16 amystartstorun May 28, 2010 at 3:33 pm

I just had the exact same thing happen to me this week. I chewed up my lip and part of my tongue. No fun!


17 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday May 28, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Oh man, were you drooling like crazy?


18 Mama Pea May 28, 2010 at 3:58 pm

I’m with you girl. I worked out this morning, got my novacaine at 9:30 and only had a smoothie on the way there. It’s 1 now, I’m still numb and STARVING. I’m waiting until it wears off, though. I’m not wasting a meal on something I can’t taste ๐Ÿ™‚


19 Erin May 28, 2010 at 4:12 pm

Ack, it’s the worst feeling to be completely trapped and hungry!


20 Tina May 28, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Hey! I found your blog through Julie’s and I knew I had heard of it before. I just wanted to say hello and that I really like your style.

Glad the dentist appt went well. Sorry you didn’t get to taste your food though.


21 Julie @ Pickley Pear May 28, 2010 at 6:34 pm

When my mouth is numb, I drool everywhere!! Your lunch sounds amazing, I’m sorry you couldn’t taste it. Have a great weekend!!


22 theprocessofhealing May 28, 2010 at 7:21 pm

YUM!!! That cake looks delicious!!


23 Katherine: What About Summer? May 28, 2010 at 7:24 pm

happy three day weekend! I have no patience for waiting room issues. I’ve been working in a waiting room check-in to make things efficient (nerdy engineer here) and feel so bad when people have to wait because the doctors are behind


24 runningwithsass May 28, 2010 at 8:33 pm

what’s bad too is when you have a cold and your nose is so stopped up you can’t taste anything. this happened to me recently and we went to PF changs which I was so excited about, and I literally could not taste a thing. i was so frustrated!


25 runnerforever May 28, 2010 at 9:09 pm

I hate having chipmunk cheese and numb mouth after the dentist haha.
Man do those scones look aaaaamazing!


26 Melissa @ For the Love of Health May 28, 2010 at 9:31 pm

Those scones you won look amazing!
There is nothing good about going to the dentist, including the numbness that follows! But you’re right, the tummy doesn’t care!


27 Erin @ A Girl & Her Mutt May 28, 2010 at 9:39 pm

The scones AND the salad look wonderful. Good combo!


28 missyrayn May 28, 2010 at 10:25 pm

So cute that she included other little treats. I hate the lower level nerve block for cavity fillings. The upper numbing is interesting too because my nose goes numb.


29 Erin May 28, 2010 at 10:49 pm

Office birthday cake… THE BEST!


30 Jenn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) May 29, 2010 at 2:29 am

That’s an awesome package of goodies! That cake does look good, glad you could taste it. ๐Ÿ˜€

I love those Boston Baked Beans. I got some at a gas station the other day.
