Max slept the entire hour as I made new friends in the waiting room and caught up on much needed magazine page turning time. After getting ideas to decorate our house, I was called into the room with HeRoos as he drowsily tried to awake from the anesthesia. We were given directions on how to care for his cut up mouth and then they gave us the bill.
No wonder they wait until the end when the patient is half drugged to present them with the bill. I also decided to take advantage of HeRoos' willingness to hand over the cash and talked to him all the way home about the "projects" I want to do in our house. He was very willing to listen and agree. I highly recommend laughing gas for your significant other if you want them to agree on important matters that they might otherwise find UNimportant.
Notice the chicken noodle soup on his chin. He had no idea it was there.
He woke up long enough to answer all the trivia questions on Ellen correctly (I didn't get one right and I wasn't on any medication but then again I'm very behind when it comes to celebrity news).
* When we were looking for an OBGYN, HeRoos gave me a list of doctors with names and numbers who took our insurance. He told me to start at the top and work my way down if needed. I discovered later why the order of the list mattered to him... the top of the list included all female doctors, then older male doctors, and then young male doctors at the very bottom of the list.
HeRoos didn't think about this strategy for dentists. He happily referred me to his dentist. Every time I go in for an appointment, I become tongue tied and feel my cheeks burning (I can assure you it's not from any laughing gas). I'm glad HeRoos is confident enough to know that Dr. McDreamy doesn't hold a candle to him.
