    Flash 55, Take 41

    She stepped into the room with trepidation.

    "I'm not used to doing things this way," she whispered.

    "I don't want to hurt you."

    Her hands shook as she picked up her tool of the trade.

    I felt confident that she could do the job.

    The drill whined as the dentist drilled my tooth without anesthesia.

    I was inspired to write this since I had to have an old filling replaced yesterday. I had asked the dentist ahead of time if she would do it without anesthesia. She said she really didn't want to so I explained that it took 8 or more hours for it to wear off and that I had a really high tolerance for pain. I had to promise that I would let her know if she hurt me.

    I'm not kidding when I say that the dentist was nervous. I mean, her hands were shaking. I assured her that I had had this procedure without being numbed several times.

    The entire procedure took less than 5 minutes because she didn't have to wait for me to numb up. It didn't hurt. Both the dentist and her assistant said that I was tough, haha! The receptionist called me a rock star, which was weird because she was the third person in 2 days to call me that.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm off to play in a Texas Hold 'em tournament. Wish me good cards :)

    Hey! You really ARE a Rock Star! I must say!

    That was a very brave thing to do! I don't think I could ever sit in a dentist's chair without feeling scared!

    Ohmygawd, for real?! No anesthesia? You are a rockstar. Truly. Well, at least I think so. I have never had it done without being numbed up. Maybe it's the smell and the sound that "hurt", anyway. *cringes* I don't really believe that.

    Great use of your 55 words, though.
