TGIF Wild Card — 7.1.11

I just got back from a pain-free visit to the dentist to fix some broken fillings. I'm amazed how far dentistry has come since I was a kid. The shots numbing shots were slightly uncomfortable. Of course. But the actual work was a piece of cake. I didn't even mind the whirring of the drill. Mebbe I'm finally a big boy now. Or mebbe the dentists have gotten that good. I'm glad they're there to save us from horrible tooth aches. You can discuss whether you fear trips to the dentist or anything else you want by playing this Wild Card ...
