Brace Yourself

My granddaughter has always known me looking like this....



a mouth full of braces.

Last Tuesday, after 20 and a half months of wearing braces....




they're gone!

(Side thought: I wish I had a sun tan.)

After my braces were removed, my orthodontist handed me a bottle of non-alcoholic, sparkling cider.














Later his assistant took me for "after pictures" and I said, "Gee, this bottle is nice....but I was kind of hoping for a bag of candy."


A few minutes later I was handed this....



and although I offered to return the cider, I was told I could keep both.

Score!

If you're wondering if my granddaughter noticed the difference....the answer is no. She did not.

So much for my thinking she'd freak-out over her newly improved Grandma.

Now I'm off to chew gum, or eat popcorn, or a Rice Krispies Treat!

Hooray!

  2. Your comment about having a suntan reminds me of the wedding picture that hangs on my wall. My husband looks like Ken & I look like a ghost standing next to him! :)
