Why Life's Not Fair

This beautiful vase of heaven is what the Wired Lady gets to stare at all day long, as it sits on the boss's coffee table. Why????????????????????????? Why meeeeeee???!!!!!!!!!

And I will admit, I broke down today and tried having a bean. As expected, I failed. There was no enjoyment sucking the sugar off, then downing the bean like a pill -- as to avoid sticky accidents with brackets. It was a complete failure but I was desperate.

Some may say they ate all kinds of these goodies when he/she had braces. All I have to say to those nay-sayers is, yes...I did too...but that time I wasn't paying for them.

And for the record -- Marshall, if you ask me for gum one more time I will kick your ass.

Just be lucky someone didn't plant some of those Harry Potter vomit-flavored beans in that jar.

Yes, that would be hard to look at all day. But I must be lucky with my braces. Both when I was a kid, and this time too. I eat pretty much whatever I want, and I have NEVER had a bracket break or come loose. I had them on for over 4 years the first time and over 1.5 years so far this time. I even ate corn on the cob last night. Granted, it's not as enjoyable when you are flossing for what seems like FOREVER. So I did order the Corn Zipper that you mentioned. I can't wait to get it! But good luck trying to avoid those jelly beans. I want some just after seeing a picture of them.

OK Tara, Do you want a damp towel to rub it in? HEHE My daughter does the same thing, she eats whatever she wants with her braces. Well not me, I just got to the point where I can almost bite into something. I spend 20 minutes cutting up all my food before taking a bite...my family laughs, but I will find a way to get them back.

If it makes you feel better, Michelle, I can't bite into apples. And that is one of the reasons why the fall is my favorite season. There's nothing like biting into a nice juicy, crisp apple. Cutting them up just isn't the same. :( Oh well, it will be worth it in the long run. Now I want an apple!
