A Couple of Videos and Posts of the Week

Just for fun, I thought I'd include a couple of my favourite viral videos. They're kind of related to one another as they both depict individuals who have just had dental work done and are still flying high on feel-good meds.

The first is a little guy, and his dad is filming his medicated observations. It's been around for a long time now and no doubt most of you have already seen it but for those of you who haven't, it's a treat.

The second one is a teen and her mother is taping her happy moments in the recovery room following dental surgery. Enjoy!

Without further delay, here are this week's Posts of the Week:

The icon to the left here is yours for the taking if your blog post has been named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up, today or in past weeks. I've decided to start mixing up the colours each week. Take whichever one appeals to you. You'll find others in past posts.

This week's top post goes to:

OMG I hadn't seen those films before, so funny! :)
"Are you OK?" "Is this gonna be... FOR EVER!?" and "Who's in da house?" :) Poor kids... But they gave me my first good laugh today! :)
Now soon off to check out some new blogs...
Peace/ Jo.

Oh Hilary, I am sitting here and laughing! What a great way to start a morning indeed. I only watched the first video (out of time, but will return later), but that was one of a kind! Superb!
Congratulations to all the talented people on your list.;)

I hadn't seen the videos and thanks for showing them here. I will head over to each of the blogs you recommend. You always find such great posts for us to read.

Dianne said...

thanks so much Hil - I really appreciate the POTW

I loved the little boy
he killed me when he asked "is this real life?"

ellen abbott said...

Oh Hilary. thank you so much for the POTW. You do me honor.

Cricket said...

Thanks for the mention, Hilary, and glad you enjoyed the story.

I am once more able to go visiting. Yay. I'll do that now.

Mental P Mama said...

Oh how I love a good dose of that gas at the dentist... I am going to visit these fine folks now;)

DeniseinVA said...

I've seen the first one before but I always enjoy seeing it again. The second one was new to me. Thanks for all the great links. I don't think I will be getting off this computer for a while ;)

R. said...

Thanks DJ for the mention. Reading the other posts, I'm surprised that mine's in that list (honestly, I'm not fishing), spent a nice half hour reading through.

Linda said...

Oh, those videos are too funny. At the same time they are scary. Would I sound or act like that while "under the influence"? I'd need something because I don't do well with anything dental except for routine cleaning.

I had a wisdom tooth out once with the aid of some good drugs, and my husband always reminds me of what I said on the way home. I looked up and said "I know where I am".

Anonymous said...

I do remember feeling like that...sooooo good. I hope the boy doesn't try to get that feeling back, ever.
I was laughing and checking down when I saw my name...omigosh! Thank you so much Hilary. I thought I had lost the touch. Thank you so much.
Now I am going through the list.

Hello, Hilary! As always fun finds, and a bright spot to the day. Thank you for taking the time, week after week.

I'd say that if you were ever in Colorado, I'd buy you a drink but what I really owe you is a bagful of smiles, laughter, and the occasional cheer.

Don't worry, I mix a mean drink ;-)

I love your posts of the week - some very worthy winners there. Have only read three so far so off to see the others. Cheers ears :0)

Daryl said...

Great picks ..

I guess I am one of the few who dont think that little boy's reaction to the anesthetic is funny. I kept hoping he'd throw up on his father.

Paul C said...

Hi Hilary,
Thanks for the nod about my post about Japanese cherry blossoms. By the way, my blog is quoteflections (a morph of quote and reflections.) You're the greatest. I don't know how you juggle so many blogs.

Gill - That British Woman said...

I have seen those videos before and they never grow old, as funny every time you watch them.

Gill an hour north of you....

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hey Hilary, I was just stopping by to recommend Shrink Wrap Scream's "Caught With My Pants Down"-- What a great story.

Thanks for lots of new blogs I'm, not familiar with. I know some reading is in store for me.

And the videos are a great addition.

Thanks a million.
