Tuesday marked my first week anniversary for being a metal mouth.Â And I ated a cheeseburger.
Oh yeah, I have a new blog set up for just that at Brace Face Chronicles.
Someone questioned if I should need another blog.
I would answer with one of these. Because I can just have one concentrated area to bitch and moan all about my inability to eat or the pain the braces hath brought.Â Because I can share the experience with other adults who are now getting their braces…or like me, getting them again for a second time.
At a recent gathering, someone asked why I got braces.
“You didn’t really need it, did you?” “I didn’t see anything wrong with your teeth before?”
Then I launched into the reasons why…which I won’t do again when you can just read it here.
And I will be taking those classes in the fall.
When I told someone that I wanted an Italian lesson, they’d look at me, puzzled.
“Why?” “What for?” “Why not Spanish?”
I would answer with one of these. I LOVE the food. I PLAN on going to spend a lot of time in Italy someday. AND learn to cook while I’m at it. I love the way the language sound. I love the way the people speak it. I love the Italian way of looking at life and how they live it.
My recent choices seem to bring up a lot of questions from others and I found myself finding an answer that would make sense to them.
And then I realize I don’t have to justify anything to anyone.
I’m getting braces because I can.
I’m writing about my experience because I can.
I’m taking Italian lessons because I can.
Because I can.
With that phrase, I can haz anything.
