La Fleur!

Sometimes my baby is so angry. It's ridiculous. Look at this picture. He's like a teenager.

angry babyEarlier today I actually took a well-deserved break from this guy and went to get a root canal.

I know I'm not the only one who falls asleep on the chair. It's like, the more shit they put in my mouth, the more sleepy I get. And all of a sudden I'm in a magical world, with trees and waterfalls. And look, it's a friendly tiger (is there any other kind?)

And then I woke up and there was frickin' smoke coming out of my mouth. And I wanted to ask if it was normal but I couldn't because obviously I had the entire enchanted forest in my mouth, which was now a volcano in Alaska. So I went back to sleep.


Now here are my adventures in TV Escapism:

Hooray for Lost.
La Fleur!

And My Boys is back!

I think Diego's mom is cute, but it could be just the pain killers speaking.

And here's a little something for my Honey:

Go Panthers
Okay okay. Here's a little something for Honey:

Go Panthers 2


Dusty said... so cracked me up! Never has anyone made me cackle when talking about going to the Dentist. ;)

Dusty said...

Oh...I forgot..yes your baby looks highly pissed..what did you say or do to him? ;p

CaraBee said...

I have never gotten even a tiny bit drowsy in the dental chair. Usually, I am so keyed up, I can't sleep for two days after.

Props on the mad Photoshop skills.

People in the Sun said...

Dusty, thanks. And I didn't even mention the cross-eyed assistant. I mean, some people look at you with one eye while the other one wanders around, but her eyes were just random. I had to look around when she talked to me to make sure it was only us in the room. And the baby is just so angry all the time. Every time I put him in the chair he starts kicking me and crying and complaining... He's teething really bad, in his defense.

CaraBee, really? I mean, I'm scared and all and I postpone my emergency visits for months and years (this visit was supposed to happen on July 2008), but once I'm there, and that godly light shines in my eyes... I'm gone.

And of course, you mean skillz, right? Actually, it's this free program called One day I'll illegally download photoshop, but learning this thing seems really overwhelming. I could probably have done a better job even with the free program, though.

girlgriot said...

Well, I passed out in the dentist's chair once, but falling asleep and dreaming of friendly tigers? Not so much. And you baby definitely looks like he could so let you have it. You both have my sympathy.

People in the Sun said...

Both of us have tooth aches. We just deal with them differently. He kicks people (his face there really says, "I hate you!" doesn't it?) and I pretend I play football for the Panthers. And I'm married to Diego's mom. Because she's H-O-T.

Sebastien said...

Ouch, sorry you had to get a root canal. I for one have never gotten sleepy at the dentist, I am so wired and scared, I feel like a cornered... RACCOON!

Your child is too cute, and oh, so wonderfully punk rock!!!

Mongoliangirl said...

As scary as this may sound, this post makes me want to go to the dentist. Maybe I should just take a nap instead.
Angry baby. Angry! But still so cuuuuute!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

For whatever it's worth, he's an incredibly handsome angry baby! I always said that Cassie had been a teenager since she was two years old. But then she turned 13 for real and I found out actually that I had been wrong all those years in between...

I never sleep in the dentist chair. But I close my eyes and pretend I'm on the beach and that lamp thing is the nice warm sun. Sometimes it even works.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

The concept of a root canal being a welcomed break from a child is not unfamiliar to me-- how sad.

Dusty said...

It was said tongue in cheek FL girl in Sidney. ;)

My son is 29 going on 12. I worry about him more now than I did when he was still crappin in his diapers.

He lives 6 states away..and I miss him every Sunday. We used to spend Sunday's together watching sports, internetting and just laughing so hard my face would hurt.

Kristen said...

"took a well-deserved break from this guy and went to get a root canal."

The next time I need a root canal, how about I babysit for you, and you go to the dentist in my place? I wish it could work like that. God I hate going to the dentist.

Sridhar said...

I am not the only photoshopically challenged blogger *phew*.

Psst not sure if you noticed but your son is cute!

People In The Sun, I like you and all, but this comment is aimed squarely at your wife:

OH MY GOD, how hot is Matt Saracen??? Strictly speaking, I'm more of a Riggins woman, but on that episode where Matt had first started dating Julie, and they were at his house and his grandma lost it, and he could have just been all embarassed in front of Julie, and gotten out of there, but he didn't, and he had to pretend to be his own grandpa, to get his grandma to calm down, and he didn't care if he looked like a dork? Oh my god, he's awesome.

OK, I'm done.

People in the Sun said...

Sebastien, I am wired and scared. But I'm also tired from taking care of my raccoon. I fell asleep while walking in Lebanon near a landmine once. Maybe I should write about that. Well, actually that's the whole story.

Mongoliangirl, cute and angry? That's the most dangerous kind!

Jill, I can't believe I'm all alone in the falling-asleep-while-getting-a-root-canal department. Actually I kind of like being unique like that.

Florida Girl, and just in case I miss him while I'm there, I could always ask the dental assistant to yell at me and scratch my face.

Dusty, okay okay. Just in case he reads that when he's old enough to be offended, he is the cutest thing in the world, even when he throws the omelette on the floor.

Kristen, I hate the dentist too! It's painful! But we can try it once and see. It might be a win win.

Sridhar, I've been photoshopping him all this time. Here's his real pre-shopped picture.

Praying, Lalalalalalala You finished? No? Still talking about him? Lalalalala. Okay... But you know what? I think Julie is cute too.

A Free Man said...

Yeah, they can be little balls of fury can't they? Those are fun days. I made the mistake of giving Zach a cricket ball which is really hard when it hits you in the jewels.

I've fallen asleep at a root canal before as well.

Matt Saracen is, aside from honey, the dreamiest. I feel slightly weird about obesessing over an actor who is playing a high school student but he's well in his twenties-I hope. I could go on and on about how great he is, and how he respects women even though he's had such conflicting female role models, and how smart he is and he is the perfect balance of artist and athlete but I wouldn't want to diminish the integrity of my honey's blog. Panthers Rule!

Honey-Diego's mom-seriously?

Bee (the one who muses) said...

For some reason I know have "Stacey's mom has got it going on" in my head.

I have mixed feelings about Lost. Mostly it's because I'm dumb so I can never really follow along.

bluestreak said...

Funniest dentist trip post I've read yet. I love going to dentist and getting the sleepy-happy-dreamy-yummy-gas.

Here's a joke for you:

A neutron walks into a bar; he asks the bartender, 'How much for a beer?' The bartender looks at him, and says 'For you, no charge.'

Lirun said...

חג שמח יא קשקשן!

מה לא תתן לקטנצ'יק לחפש את האפיקומן?!

זה הרי הכיף הגדול ביותר בעולם כלו!!

People in the Sun said...

Freeman, you have? I'm not alone? Actually, should I be disappointed? Our favorite game is for me to try to do push ups while he's either leaning on me or throwing stuff on my head.

Honey, we almost won State Championship... JD just wasn't ready... And Diego's mom might not be the wildest, sexiest woman in the world, but she's kind, and she loves animals. And she's good to me.

Bee, it's simple, really. Some people need to protect the island. Charles Whitmore is bad, but that's easy because he was also bad in OC. Jack's dad is also What's her name's dad. Locke was dead but now he's alive. The guy from Oz is not really disabled because obviously he's not disabled here. The DWI curse has proven to be false because Jinn is still alive. There's a giant statue. There's a guy who never gets old. Hope that helped.

Bluestreak, I never got the gas. I think. You funny. A horse goes into a bar and asks for a beer. The barman is shocked and says, "A hundred Dollars." The horse turns around to leave, so the barman says, "I'm sorry, it's just that I've never had a talking horse here before." So the horse says, "With prices like that, you never will!"

Lirun, Hag Sameach to you too. Poor guy was sick and stayed home with his dad. He had Kosher for Passover Tylenol drops. But I still hope his first sentence will be "Ma Nishtana?"

LiteralDan said...

That look on your kid's face is great, it's like he's saying, "Dude, what the fuck? Get the fuck out of my apartment!"

And cartoon ladies can sneak up on you like that, it's very unnerving. I know a lot of Japanese artists and their fans who've more than made their peace with it, but I don't know that I could get to that place.

People in the Sun said...

You can't get to that place? That's good. Less competition for me. Now I only need to take care of Señor Márquez...

Ophelia Mourne said...

baby rage is hilarious. I think I have traumatized Isabella from laughing everytime she was pissed off.

Oh And You are LUCKY to pass out in the dentist chair.
I was fully awake and aware as they pulled out four wisdom teeth in a row, ungh.

People in the Sun said...

How can you help yourself? The angrier they get the cuter they become.

Four wisdom teeth at one time? Respect!
