Trip before a trip

Handwritten page of a diary dated June 5, 2000

probably not the best idea to schedule an intense dentist appointment in the morning and a long flight in the afternoon.

When I was waiting for him to come in to drill holes in my teeth, raindrops started pelting the giant window. When the drugs kicked in, the window was a shimmery curtain of solid water. Then I thought it was a wall made of clear Jello, just a little bit wobbly.

And that’s the last thing I remember until I was in the back of a cab in the airport parking lot. The rain had stopped, but the parking lot had turned into a lake, and the cab was floating in it.
