That past Pina Colada

Yes, yesterday I was at the dentist thanks to a hidden olive pip! It broke my tooth in half! So after much injecting and drilling,  my tooth is now fixed. Today I woke up with slightly swollen eyes,  an after effect of the injections, I think. And tonight after many months I am going out for cocktails with friends! I will make sure my Mom has all her medicine and my Dad has assured me he can and will take care of my Mom for a few hours. So now I will take my swollen eyes, make-up the heck out of them and go for those cocktails! Yes, siree no swollen eyes can stop me (even if I look a bit like a raccoon)! Did you ever go out looking less than perfect? I hope everyone will have a fabulous weekend! And if I don't see you again Today, I will try to catch up tomorrow. Photo is of a Pina Colada I ordered the last time I went for cocktails.

@Courtlynn , true, no one is perfect. It's weird, I woke up this morning and on especially the side of the injection my eye is slightly swollen, with the other coming a close second

Oh goodness, this is why I always want pitted olives, I do not trust the un-pitted ones.

Yes, you are right, Anna and I thought these were pitted, but somehow a pip remained in the one I bit into @LadyDuck , I saw stars!

@bluesa It is extremely dangerous, but it can happen, because they are pitted using machines, there is no human control.

Poor you! You never mentioned to me why you were going to the dentist. Glad your tooth was repaired, but sorry you got so beat up! I had my chipped front tooth repaired last week. Hope you have a drink or two for me tonight and have lots of fun with your friends. You deserve it! I went out with sun poisoning in Florida for a St. Patrick's Day party. You could tell up close that I was badly blistered, but thank goodness for makeup!!! Heal soon.

i think the swollen eyes was due to the injection of anesthesia in your oral cavity. pressure was put on where the injection was pricked. i don't think you have allergy because if you had, it should not be swollen eyes, but also hives in your skin

Yes, I think so too @ridingbet . It is probably slight bruising. And I don't have other allergy symptoms.

Glad you ordered the Pina Colada and not a martini. I think it wise to keep a wide berth from Olives. (Personally I hate them) No amount of make up preening or pruning will ever make me perfect looking so no need for me to hide what I don't have in the first place.

@garymarsh6 , a martini is too dangerous. I shall double check olives from now on. I went out with my slightly swollen eyes and had a blast. I think we each have a different perception of perfect, Gary, and it could be said that we are perfect the way we are. :)
