I'm getting braces!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in like 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And i just found out today!!!! So today i went to my orthodontist for a check-up to see if i needed braces(i only found out i was going last night;thanks, mom.) So i was in that weird soft swively dentist chair thingy, all relaxed, when this happened:
O(orthodontist): well Kaly, now i'm just going to have a look at your teeth. open wide!
K(Kaly): ok *opens mouth*
O: hmmm... *pokes a lot of sharp metal objects in my mouth*
K: nrghrh (can't talk because of strange metal objects)
O: looks okay... oh! theres something here...
O: all right! *finishes* Now kaly, some of your teeth are a bit crooked. this is probably caused by...
K: (this is the part where i zone out as he goes on and on about my teeth for roughly 10 min.)
O: ...and that's why i think you'll need braces!
(then i had to listen while he went on and on about what i'll need to do when i get braces and all that for another 30 minutes.)
I can't believe it!!!!!!! i mean, BRACES!!!! i get freaked out when i have a loose tooth!! Also, there are lots of things you can't eat with braces, such as:
- popcorn (only one of my favorite foods EVER!! i mean, what am going to do when i go to the movies?)
- Doritos (another one of my favorite junk foods)
- Chicken wings (i love these so much)
- apples (at least, not whole ones)
- any chewy candy (Sweedish Fish! Gummy Bears! Caramel! all gone!!)
And much, much more! plus, i'm not allowed to drink alot of sugary drinks. Usually, this would be fine, considering that i don't like soda. But what, i ask you, am i going to do about apple juice? and lemonade? i drink them only about every day! *sigh* this isn't going to be easy.... i better drink a ton now, before my favorite foods are taken away from me.
