Today, Buddy gets braces on his teef. He has the same bite that I did as a child - only I was 16 when I got my braces on and 19 (and in college) when they were removed. These days, the time frame is 15 to 18 months! I wish mine had been finished that quickly.
Anyway, I know the pain involved. I feel bad for him because the Evil Twin had mentioned having lunch at Olive Garden for his birthday lunch, then changed his mind and wanted Domino's sammiches and wings. He decided we'd go out for dinner at some point this week. The sad thing? Olive Garden has calamari on the menu and that is Buddy's favorite. I hope his mouth won't be too sore to enjoy the calamari.
When I had braces, my mom would drive thru Wendy's after every appointment to get me a Frosty. It was one of the few things I could tolerate. I have texture issues and pudding, jello and soup don't always cut the mustard with me. He is so much like me, I think I've got my work cut out for the next year and a half.
But, his teef will be pretty and straight when it's all said and done. We'll be several thousand $$$$ lighter, but it's worth it. Plus, I think I mentioned before we get a discount for me being a former client! Yay!
Wish us luck!
Happy Tuesday, hooligans!
