The TOOTH of the MATTER:
I have had braces before, circa 1986. The horrible silver ones. With rubber bands and all kinds of drama. (I really wish I had a pic to share - that would get a good laugh out of ya'll). Approximately 1989, I had straight teeth and a nice retainer to keep them that way. Being the awesome teenager that I was, I broke my retainer about 5 times. Finally my mom gave up and said, "you break it again, you buy it." Well, I did break it and I didn't buy it.
Flash forward to my early 20s and the onset of Wisdom Teeth. My teeth were all pushed forward, so I have these little rabbit buck teeth in the front and the bottom are crowded with major shifting. There's kinda like a snaggletooth on the bottom (my ex thought it was cute, but I sure hate it).
HENCE THE INVISALIGN!
I picked them up yesterday and they fit perfectly. They feel tight, but not sore. I popped a few Advil before bed, just in case. I did NOT sleep well. I kept waking up and wanting to take them out, but I didn't. Luckily they do not pop in and out as easily as a retainer. I had several dreams about TEETH. All the waking up caused me to over-snooze this morning and NOT RUN; Messing up my run schedule for the week. GER.
Since they are NOT easy to take out:
GOOD = NO mindless snacking and only water drinking.
BAD = I need to eat like 6 times a day, so it's a pain to have to take out everytime.
I am wearing them in this pic - you can hardly tell.
So here starts my journey to straight teeth (AGAIN).
I will try to not blog about it anymore, as it is a very boring subject and nowhere related to running, rants or relationships. And based on this pic it is quite obvious that my eye cream is NOT working.
