Smile a little smile for me...
Ok, first of all, you should know a few years ago, I had braces. Now, don't freak out...my teeth weren't THAT bad, plus coming from a family of like 20 children, my parents couldn't afford braces. Look, I had crooked teeth like Jewel... You know the singer? She sang that song "who can save our souls" ... never mind...
Soon after that, I was lucky enough to get the braces off and I've had amazingly beautiful straight teeth since, to go with my already infectious smile! At least in my humble opinion... HA!
Well, since moving to a new state I kinda sorta misplaced my retainer for a period of time. One evening, as I'm getting ready for bed, I had just finished brushing my enamels I look in the mirror and I could see a very, very slight space between my two front teeth.
This made me begin to kind of worry...worry to the point of slight panic. I searched high and low for my retainer. I finally found it and I attempted to put it in my mouth and umm, it umm broke. Well, it didn't break all the way, it was more like a severe crack.
So severe, that it was very painful to have it in my mouth. The fact that I could see a slight microscopic space between my two front teeth I was very troubled. So, YES! YES, I shoved the stupid retainer into my mouth anyway and made it fit! Hurt like hell, but I wasn't about to let my teeth go crooked inside my beautiful lips.
Besides, my mother has always said to me and my sister "It hurts to be beautiful..." She would always say this as she ripped through my tangled curly hair with a comb, when I was a little girl.
This is when the nightmare took place...
I'm looking in the mirror and suddenly my beautiful teeth have become crooked and I had a huge gap in my front teeth. I could almost see the gap getting bigger and bigger as I looked at my reflection.
I panic and begin searching for my broken retainer. Finally I find it and begin to attempt to shove this cracked retainer into my mouth. When all of a sudden one of my precious teeth breaks right off! In this forever disturbing dream, I could feel and hear the cracking as it fell right out of my head. As if it were real I tell you!
This makes me start to cry like a baby in my dream. Actually, it was more like a piercing, heart wrenching scream of horror.
The whole time I'm thinking, what the FUCK am I going to tell my "quasi" boyfriend??? I can never smile again, OH GOD! Please, not this, anything but this!!!!!!
As I'm having this "episode" inside of my dream, another freakin' tooth falls out of my head! HOLY SHIT! I try to speak, but teeth just continue to fell out of my mouth!
This is when I pop straight up in bed, sweating like a mad woman and breathing like the air had been sucked right out of my lungs! THANK GOD! THANK YOU SWEET LORD!
It was only a dream, My teeth are still beautiful and straight! Woooo that was close!
P.S. Don't worry, I'm getting a new retainer on my trip back home next week.
