Well, not exactly.
More like a root canal.
I asked Mrs. Koch last week what she did for her 77th birthday.
"Had a root canal," she said brightly.
And then she continued, "The dentist kept asking me questions about the park. Of course my mouth was all numb and full of dental apparatus, so I couldn't answer. I couldn't even react when my dentist said, 'I better make sure I do a good job, or this might end up in the papers.'"
