Spent the afternoon at the dentist, which is always great fun. I sampled nitrous oxide for the first time and I am apparently immune to its effects. The dentist kept asking if I was feeling "happy" and I kept responding that I was feeling like I had a hose stuck on my nose and was sitting in a dentist's chair. After a few exchanges along these lines he cranked up the gas to the max and looked hopefully at me like I would be buzzed into some blissful state...when I shrugged, he gave me a disappointed look. We then agreed to simply remove the hose from my face and get on with the business of fixing my tooth.
I devoured a double cheeseburger this evening. I don't eat a lot of fast food as is, but I figured since I start my fast tomorrow I'd indulge. Now that was a moment of bliss.
