Have you noticed since getting braces that everyone you talk to has an orthodontics-related story to tell you? I’m just over 3 weeks into this adventure, and I’ve probably heard 50 stories about “when I had braces…”, “my husband has braces”, “I hated my braces…”, “my daughter just got her braces off…”, and so on. I realize that people are trying to empathize with me, and while I’m glad to have a “conversation piece”, I can see this getting old fast!
Just because I have braces does not mean I care. J
(Now, of course, my fellow “friends in braces”, this doesn’t apply to you! If you are actively participating in the whole metal mouth experience, I welcome the chance to listen to or read your stories and comments!)
