Put Them Both Together ...

Root: An anchor or support of green things.  The word has an earthy tone to it.  We plant our roots and make the land our home.  Going back to our roots ... always a desirable thing.

Canal: a channel for water.  A way for water-borne commerce.  A place to laze the day fishing.  A place to skip stones, chase frogs, and to splash on hot summer days.

Sadly, when you put them both together, you end up with something all together different:  Root Canal

  1. I'm so sorry. I've never had one, but I've heard they aren't fun. Take some good drugs

  2. They aren't any fun and I have had at least four and since each time the tooth was hurting so bad, it was a relief to get it done. I hated the fact that I had to go back to the dentist so many times, with each one!

  4. MMC: Thanks. Today is the day.

    MoH: This is my first as well. I'm sure to let people know how it went.

    Mom: I'm happy that the dentist I'm going to seems to be able to get me in quickly so I'm hoping this won't take forever to complete. Can't wait for the aching to go away.

    GH: They should be better soon.
