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.
Beeps and blips in a hospital CAN be quite annoying, until they are so ever-present you stop notching them.
And to say I wasn’t influenced in this strip by Monty Python’s “machine that goes ping” would be blatantly untrue.
