dancing braces

I took the braces dancing last weekend in Salt Lake City. I learned a few things, really quickly.
  1. Sprouts are a terrible thing. Terrible.
  2. No matter how much I love fishy crackers, I shouldn't eat them because they form a thick, gooey paste that is impossible to brush off.
  3. Watch out for tall leads while blues dancing. Minor trama to cheek that would have been ignored pre-braces suddenly becomes painful semi-large-feeling trauma with braces.
  4. People look at you funny when you play with a loose bracket while dancing with them.
  5. A tired, spaced out stare looks ten million times more stupid with braces.
  6. Sushi is difficult. Not impossible, but difficult. And embarassing to eat in large groups of people.
  7. Brushing your teeth in crowded bathrooms, especially in airports, brings a lot of attention.
  8. I miss gum. A lot.
  9. Wax is good. And should be brought on all trips.

There were other foods I encountered that were terrible, horrible, no good, and very bad, but they are escaping me now.

The sprouts, though. Ugh.

Why is wax good? What do you get to use it for?

I agree, wax is great! A day or two after an adjustment and things start to move... definitely a must have.
I find that I try very hard to cut things up and eat them with a fork, if I try to bite into things... what a mess to clean!
