A friend posted on Facebook some out loud thinking as to whether she dreaded more a root canal or going to a party, introvert that she is.
Another friend posted what became the first in a list. Here’s the list, with a bonus.
Ten Reasons a Root Canal is Better Than a Party for an Introvert
- A root canal won’t ask you if it can call you later. (Thanks to Katherine Bailey-Shaffer for that one.)
- Root canals take place in a small room with, perhaps, quiet music playing in the background.
- Root canals usually have a predictable time they will end.
- During a root canal, no one expects you to respond with witty conversation.
- Two words: nitrous oxide.
- A root canal is less like pulling teeth for an introvert.
- One, or at most two, people at a time.
- If you say something stupid, everybody blames the nitrous.
- You have something to grip.
- You’re not expected to invite the dentist over to your place next time.
And, bonus: Dentists usually use good mouthwash.
