crooked teeth

May 3, 2010

Let me tell you the problem with crooked teeth.

They get food stuck in them.

That so-called friends don’t tell you about.

And you walk around for hours talking to people with bright green stuff stuck in the crevices of your over-lapping teeth.




All the while you have green stuff stuck in your crooked teeth that have never seen the miracle of braces…and YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

Then you look in a mirror and see the green stuff.

Then the mortification sets in.

Then the disbelief that your so-called friend didn’t bother to tell you.

How do I know?

I have just lived it…and I thought she was my buddy, thought she could tell me anything, but nooooo, she’s not willing to save me from embarrassment, just lets me walk around with three big hunks of pesto stuck in my teeth.

Message to all my in-real-life friends:

If you see me with food in teeth, gunk on my face, make-up not rubbed in, zipper undone, slip hanging down, or any of a million other embarrassing things, PLEASE let me know. Please, please, please.

Otherwise, I may just have to spend the rest of my life in hiding.
