Life's Little Inconveniences, Tootsie Pops, and Twitch

Life's little inconveniences, aren't they grand? Mine seem to be in full swing today. During my freshman, sophomore, and junior year of High School, I had braces, that's why my teeth are so nice and straight now. I got them off my senior year, but for some odd reason my two front teeth wanted to separate leaving a small gap, I didn't have this gap before the braces, but I had a gap after the braces, odd, I know. Anyway, my orthodontist cemented a small bar behind my teeth, so they would stay together, and personally it's never bothered me. Actually I usually forget it's there for months at a time. Now fast forward five years later after getting that bar put on my teeth, I'm at dinner with Harley and all of a sudden I feel something sharp and loose behind my teeth. I start to play with it and Harley is nice enough to ignore me putting my fingers in my mouth in a public place to check the metal wire behind my teeth. Sure, enough! The one side came un-cemented. fabulous! Now, I still see my orthodontist twice a year for check-ups, fabulous guy, but he's 30 minutes away from where I live 45 from work and since most of his clients are under the age of 18, his office hours are 7am to 3:30pm! (for all of you that were metals mouths like me, wasn't the orthodontists a great way to skip school?) Now that I'm an adult, I would appreciate night time hours... like 7pm. So, I had to go into work early today (for those of you that don't know, I don't arrive at work until noon), so I could leave early, to go yes, ultimately get my braces fix. *sigh*  C'est La Vie! I probably shouldn't have ate all those tootsie pops... after all these years, you think I would learn that hard candy + orthodontics don't mix! But, I would sacrifice it all again for my love of tootsie pops!

So You Think You Can Dance? finale tonight! :-) I am so routing for Twitch! That's my main man right there. I love how hard he has worked. I always admire hard-working people, it's such an attractive trait. Anyway, I'll be voting on any available phoneline, I can get my hands on, hopefully he wins, because all my other favorites on the show have been voted off and he's the only one left. Twitch - IV Real!
