was telling a friend on Saturday night that i was doing "No ABC's"
and i made it a month. YAY ME!
and have decided to continue the theme. at first i thought i would alternate it from NO to YES. since i didnt want this year to REALLY be two thousand nein. get it? nein? as in No? as in i'm giving up a ... ahh screw it. I thought it was funny.
anyway... i thought, "since i said NO to ABC in january, i can say YES to DEF in february" but couldn't think of anything cool to say yes to. dates? (the fruit, honey) diets? drugs? diving? exercise? eating? elephants? fitness? fritos? friends? i was getting nowhere.
until today. i went for my consult to get my wisdom teeth yanked so i can make room in my mouth for when i get braces. teeths gotta have room to move, yes? and when the good doctah gave me my "dental plan of action" my DEF became clear. February is YES to Dentist - Extractions - Fillings.
momma's got a LOT of work that needs to be done. he will only take out my top wisdoms too because the lower ones are essentially lodged somewhere in my hips. i'm thinking they would be too much of a pain in the ass to get to. and since they haven't "erupted" yet, no need to dink with them. so. next monday i have fillings and one extraction. then in march i have the other side. and then i have scaling and major cleaning. and THEN... THEN i can go see the orthodontist to see what HE thinks about braces.
they handed me the sheet with the menu items of things i need done and i about fell out of the chair. its gonna be $997 AFTER what insurance covers. YEEEOUCH. at least i dont have to pay for it all at one time. but still. as long as the end result is an ACTUAL shit-eating grin i dont mind photographed, then it will all be worth it. right? right? amiright?
