A friend in braces

I've been chatting with a friend in the U.K. ever since I got braces.  His wife was in braces at the time, so we had something in common.  She got her braces off late last year I think.

Today, he IMed me and advised that early last week he got braces to fix a crooked bottom and also to close a gap on his upper arch.  He opted for clear ceramics with a metal wire on top and had to get metallic brckets on the bottom with silver ligatures I think.  It will be great to share experiences with him now that we are both in the same predicament.  No headgear or any additional appliances is needed he says.

His treatment should last about a year he says, so that means he will perhaps be out of braces before I get done.  Geez...

wearing those elastics

I awoke this morning and brushed. I had my elastics in so I changed them. There was not much in the house to eat so I went out by a nearby Kentucky and had two snackers. of course they stuck in my spaces and between the brackets.

Later, I had a cheese sandwich, a mango and a banana. Trying to stay healthy.

A friend had texted me to go to breakfast, but I'd been up too late so I could not make it.
