SO Cool!

Finish the Sentence Friday

Linking up with Kate at Can I Get Another Bottle Of Whine for Finish the Sentence Friday. This week's awesome sentence to finish:

I thought I was SO cool when... I would have braces and play the recorder. Yes, that's what I considered the coolest thing when I was a second-grader. Not much later I actually had to meet up with the orthodontist and got a retainer. Not nearly as cool as braces. And a year later, I signed up for recorder classes Tuesday morning before school. And, let me tell you, 10 third-graders semi-simultaneously feeping away on their recorders may be one of the reasons why I am completely tone-deaf.

I eventually got my braces to give me a somewhat pretty smile again, after having my jaw widened and two teeth pulled to make place for my canines to come in. And again, it wasn't cool. But just felt like sharing some insight into a 7-year old brain  :-)


  1. I had braces in 7th and 8th grade. Then a retainer than a mouth piece. So not fun.

    1. Wasn't it aweful? I wonder how I could EVER think that it's cool :-)
