I don't know about you but I LOVE to say this word, hearing ululation however opens a whole 'nother bago'tricks, it puts one in a tribal primitive frame of mind.

It is a soft sounding word, Katy, but there was nothing soft about the ululating I did after my last wisdom tooth was pulled. I couldn't stop ululating once the novacaine wore off and I had to go back to the dentist for a shot of sodium pentathol, and a heavy duty prescription of pain killers.

I have never experienced pain like that any other time in my life!

Ululating was the only thing that gave me comfort!

You have a very bad dentist, I had one smart tooth and 1 molar removed, neither of which hurt, ever. And I take nearly NO pain meds, a tylenol is all, One at that. Maybe you need a shot of endorphins.


Either I had two great dentists or am immune to tooth-related pain. I do understand your feelings tho' after gall bladder removal the pain was awful and I had no breath to ululate!
