The first time I had wisdom teeth removed (I did it two at a time) they put me under.
This was a huge mistake. Turns out I do not respond well to general anesthesia and when I woke up I was still high as a kite. I was confused, didn’t know where I was, was nauseous, and emotionally weird, randomly crying for no reason. Medical people I know personally have since told me that they either overdid it on the GA or released me too soon.
Once I got home I still had this issue where if I didn’t fully concentrate on the action I was doing, I would just stop doing it. Like talking, or sitting up straight, or holding things.
The friend who took me home sweetly brought me a chai milkshake I could sip, and of course removed the lid on the styrofoam cup for me, as I was not permitted to use a straw.
So I focused all my attention on holding the cup and drinking from the cup without making a mess of myself. I settled in on my sofa with some pillows and started surfing the internet.
I don’t recall what it was that distracted me, but I let a little bit of concentration slip from the hand gripping the cup…
And the second I wasn’t thinking about it, I was also not holding it.
Suddenly it was soaking through the keyboad on my macbook.
Now remember, I was still out of it on the drugs and not reacting reasonably to ANYTHING, so I lost my shit and started screaming and bawling and called my dad saying that I might as well die.
Fortunately he calmed me down, and when I was more stable, I took it to an apple store and explained the whole story and I think the dude at the genius bar just about cried. I got lucky in that at least my hard drive was salvageable and I was able to get a housing and turn it into an external until I could get a new computer. An expensive end to the tale, but not a total loss at least.
