My dentist is Katy Perry

I might not be posting for a few days, as I am not trusting my ability to write coherently on pain meds, and I just had major dental surgery. However, I feel it is imperative that I tell all of my loyal readers (yes, both of you) about the experience of waking up from anaesthetic!

Apparently, the first thing I did after waking up was look at my partner and say "my dentist is Katy Perry"

She responded by asking whether the dentist was playing Katy Perry music, and I shook my head and went back to sleep.

Just thought you should know that even when I am unconscious, I am thinking about pop culture! And I really really really don't like Katy Perry, and not just because I can now blame her for my swollen face, sore mouth, and inability to eat solid foods.


  1. I don't know who Katy Perry is (and it sounds like I don't want to know), but I hope you feel like yourself again soon! Speedy recovery!

  2. Haha that was funny! I was really laughing out loud. I wouldn't be surprised if Katy Perry('s music) was able to give people a swollen face and so on ;)

  3. Aw, poor Katy Perry. It's an odd non-sequitur, but it's understandable. After all, she went through one doozy of a dental procedure. Well, hang in there, and may your recovery be quick and Perry-free!

  4. I am surprised you could still think about pop culture during your major dental procedure. If that was me, I would be too groggy to think of anything else. Anyway, I hope everything went well with your recovery from surgery.

  6. Wow! It’s so impressive that you could even think of other things beyond your dental procedure while you should be sleeping the whole period! That’s really impeccable! I think we should thank Katy Perry for that because her music makes you forgot the pain. Don’t mind the swollen face and the sore mouth. By following your dentist’s orders, the swelling will be healed in no time.
