If anyone can accomplish it...I can!
Last night Steve and I celebrated his birthday with one of our favorites...sushi!
When Steve picked a sushi restaurant for his birthday celebration, I have to admit, I was a little bit wary. How would my oral disability effect the ability to consume my favorite fishy delights? Rightfully so, I did a little research. And by 'research' I mean, I asked Jacquie B. - mainly because she is the only person who frequently visits my cubicle. But nonetheless, Jacquie had a wonderful suggestion, which I now pass along to all my friends in the adult braces community...soy paper!!!!!!! That's right, if you think about a sushi roll, what comes to mind? Seaweed! Oh yes. Not easy to eat, even without a mouth of metal. The tip for eating sushi with braces is...request a soy paper wrap. With all the soy sauce I use to dunk my rolls in anyway, I couldn't even taste the difference! Hooray for braces & sushi! Also, a roll with a cucumber surrounding is also advised but BEWARE...sticky rice loves nesting in braces. I would highly recommend avoiding sushi if on a first date and rocking the braces.
