The whole idea of local anesthetic and being awake during an operation seems to weird to me. It would even more-so if I found that I smelled like pizza.
Happy Thanksgiving, btw. Hope you are warm and with family.
I always find it horrifying when kids pet small animals, having NO idea their own strength. 99% of the time it’s fine, but I’m always waiting for the doctor to be called in for wee concussions or broken bones.
