When pain triggers… aaaah!

A small child was peeping inside the glass door trying to catch my attention. When I look at her, she runs smiling to the other end where I could not find her, and again, she continues the exercise. On the way, many people hit her trying to distract her but she was interested in my looks and smile. It was the last time she turned back when a leg bigger than her size hit her. She fell back, I rushed from my chair but saw her mother approaching her. She stopped crying as soon as her mother hugged her but still her eyes had tears with a mild smile on her face that were staring at me.

I asked the woman in the reception as to how many minutes I would have to wait to see the doctor and she replied fifteen. I was in a clinic to see a dentist as my tooth was paining severely. This was the second time I am facing such a pain and it feels intolerable. Doctor advised during my first visit to perform a root canal; however, I went to Mumbai on the day when it was planned.

Prithviraj, Dileep and the other Malayalam actors seemed too fat and small from the position I was viewing the television. The doctor has arranged a small room with Air conditioner and a 40 inch LCD that makes his patients feel comfortable and forget the pain. A woman appeared on the screens wearing a small frock; I think that might be her childhood dress that she loves the most. She started gossiping and finally played a song.

I logged from my mobile into blogger and was about to start writing a post when the woman called my name to meet the doctor. I went inside the door and saw a figure coated with a white caftan and a mask on the face. She asked me to relax on a flat chair and pulled a light above my head towards my mouth. Taking a big tool in her hand, she asked me to open my mouth. Tic… tac… thum… tishum… she started hitting my teeth and asked whether I was feeling pain. The first answer that came out of my mouth was aaaah! I do not wonder why people consider them as a symbol of horror. Similar to any underworld killer, she had many sophisticated tools. She gave me some medicines and asked me to report on Thursday for root canal and not to skip it this time.

There were ample medicines to keep me busy all the time. I finally thanked her and left the clinic. During these days, I was away from Blogging I tried several recipes and most of them worked well.

I got a comment from Radhika that the woman I would marry will be happy sitting idle having me prepare all the food. Dileep supported me saying he wants to avoid a curfew situation when wifes goes for a strike. : )
