For Better or For Worse by Lynn Johnston for September 14, 2008
Nurse; Mr. Fuddmulch? Dr. Patterson will see you, now. Man: ... will it hurt? Before you begin, Doc... is it gonna hurt? John: I don't think so, a bit of discomfort, perhaps, but... Man: I don't want to feel anything, OK? The reason I don't like dentists is because I'm sensitive. I can't take any kind of suffering. John: Open, please. I'll put some topical anesthetic on here, and... Man: Aaaagh! John: Ready? Relaxed? There! Did you feel anything? Fine!! Man: That's it? Done already? Whoa! That was easy!! Nurse: You OK, doc? John: I dunno, Jean. For some reason... I'm in pain!!
