Hip-Hip Hooray! I just got my braces off today!! After two years of speaking like Daffy Duck, spiting like a baseball player, and not being able to eat my favorite food in the whole wide world—popcorn, I’m free!! I must say it was worth it all. I love my new teeth! It took a long time for the dentist to convince me to correct my under bit. My top teeth set inside of my back bottom teeth. It was really bad. I didn’t realize just how bad it was until I saw the before and after pictures. I screamed out, “Good golly Miss Molly, why didn’t someone say something sooner??!!”
I’m one of those people who will tell another that they have something in their teeth or a foreign object is hanging from their nose. I’m that way because I would want to know if it were me. So, if you ever see me in one of those conditions, please speak up!
To complete my new look, I also got a haircut with an extra added touch. My hair is now cut in a cute bob where the back is shorter than the front. The sides hang in an angle. It’s very edgy. To add that extra something, I had red highlights added—just a few here and there. When I arrived home, my daughter screamed, “Oh, my, gosh! I love your hair!” That’s when the thought hit me that I may have gone overboard. My concern was confirmed when my husband got home.
His reaction to my new “do” was right in step with his conservative personality. “Well, what do you think?” I inquired searching his blank face for clues. “Did you get a tattoo to match?” He asked. “No.” I responded calmly with my hands on my hips. “I had my belly button pierced instead.”
I didn’t really have my belly button pierced, but I did add red to my hair. Besides my husband everybody else loves it! In fact, now that he’s use to it he likes it too.
We all need a new and improved look every now and then—right? Even an old barn needs a new coat of paint once in a while. Changing my hair or buying a new outfit always makes me feel good. It’s a great way to lift the spirits without eating and adding extra pounds that eventually leave me depressed again. So if you need a pick me up today, change your eye-shadow or lip-stick shade. You know, how we wear the same colors there too, girls. Maybe buy yourself some new summer sandals or new ear-rings. Go crazy and add an extra shade to your hair color. If you do, I’d love to see a photo. I’ll be updating mine soon!
