Are we on the same page here...?

Earlier at the Dental School....:

Dental Student: (upon completing work on my teeth) How are you feeling?
Me: My face is stinging.
Dental Student: Oh, it's just the cement - it can be a little irritating sometimes...
Me: My face is STINGING. Right HERE. And HERE. And along HEEEEEEERE.
Dental Student: (turning to assisting fellow dental student) Alcohol wipe.

At this point I'd like to point out that I thought - ALCOHOL wipe? I say my face is STINGING and your answer is to fix it with an ALCOHOL wipe??? Needless to say I had serious concerns about "curing" STINGING with an ALCOHOL wipe.

Assisting Dental Student wipes the stinging areas on my face that I had indicated.
Me: It's making it WORSE!!!!!

I wash my face off with water from a cup they pour for me. ALCOHOL wipe?!? WHAT were they THINKING?!?!!

Maybe they wanted you to suck on it. Being drunk from an alcohol wipe may have made you forget about the pain? :-)

Sorry Cadi!! (clicked the wrong button!) :/
