Um…you might want to grab a kleenex…

I was out sick yesterday with something my daughters gave me.  I woke up this morning feeling much better (fever symptoms all gone) but I still had a bit of a runny nose.  But this morning I had a dentist appointment to fix some fillings that I managed to brush off.  So as is the standard practice, the dentist shot me up with Novacain.

The work went painlessly, but I now have the unpleasant reality that I cannot feel anything around my mouth...including the bottom part of my nose.  Normally this isn't much of a problem, but if you happen to have a runny nose...or almost worst, you think you might have a runny leaves you in a bit of a predicament.  I am now completely paranoid that I'll be walking down the hall with snot dripping down my face unbeknownst to me.

Don't expect me to leave the relative privacy of my office for a couple of hours.

Did I just feel something on my upper lip?
