Day 169: My Teeth are far worse, or you can’t fix stupid

Currently my favorite photo in which you may or may not be able to tell that my teeth have issues.

I came across this post today and felt the need to write a post of my own. Bullying is not cool at any age. I am appalled that many people use the anonymity of the Internet to be cruel to complete strangers. For that matter stranger or not no one should tear another person down because of their physical appearance. When I was growing up I was accident prone I have rearranged the teeth in my head at least half a dozen times and even though the dentist did a wonderful job straightening them out my teeth are still slightly crooked. I didn’t lose my last baby tooth until last year at the age of 26. There is a  gap which the adult tooth is slowly moving into. Yes I could have braces put on my teeth, I am well aware that it is not uncommon for adults to have braces nowadays. The truth is I am absolutely terrified of dentists and orthodontists and have been my entire life. Thankfully I have never had a cavity which required filling or having a tooth pulled . All I have to say to the people who left such nasty comments on this  couples save the date, photo is apparently Ron White is correct: you can’t fix stupid.


Day 77: Does the Tooth Fairy account for inflation?

I lost my last baby tooth yesterday. You heard right… Yesterday. For the record I am 26 years old. I have the adult tooth that was supposed to replace it as well, instead of pushing baby tooth out it grew from the gum line above it. It will be interesting to see if it eventually moves into its proper position or if I’m going to have to go to a dentist to have it fixed right. I hope we can avoid the dentist trip because I am an absolute coward when it comes to dental work. I can make myself sit there was a massive effort of will, it also helps that I physically can’t run away screaming, if I could I suspect there would have been a couple times I would’ve had been dragged back into the building. Of course knowing my luck the tooth fairy isn’t doing much better than the rest of us in this recession.
