Something to sink my teeth into

Have you ever been in a situation where you know that you should leave well enough alone, but then you just go ahead and make it worse anyway?

I have.

For instance –

Yesterday I was at the dentist for my six month check-up.

I hadn’t had a chance to eat much for lunch that day, so I ate a GIANT cheese bun on my way over to the clinic.

(I knew that I wouldn’t be able to eat for half an hour after my cleaning, and as such I knew that if I didn’t eat I would be absolutely ravenous by the time I got home, and as such, one grumpy, grumpy girl.)

So there I was, chomping away for all of Canada, getting both cheese and bun stuck in my teeth.

Now, I’m not one for showing up to the dentist with food mashed between my molars (I just figure that’s poor form) so I thought it would also be best to stop in at the dollar store and procure an inexpensive toothbrush, toothpaste, and flossing set.

I tell ya, you can always count on Dollar-ama.

Anywho, I got my gear, and make it to the dentist with plenty of time to spare to rid my mouth of any offending food particles.

I set up shop in the bathroom and got down to business.

Right away it started off wrong.

All the bits that I was flossing out of my teeth kept splattering all over the bathroom mirror.

It was like food fireworks.

I even tried to stop myself, and yet it didn’t matter.

When I was finished, the bathroom (but especially the mirror) was just littered with cheese bun detritus.

I stood there debating whether or not I should try to clean it up, wondering if taking a paper towel to the glass would just make it worse.

In the end, I gave it a shot and low and behold –


I tried to take a photo just to show how awful the mirror looked by the time I had finished, but unfortunately it didn’t come out all that well.


You’ll just have to take my word for it – I left that bathroom in quite the state.

Good grief.

At least my teeth received an A+?

Elsewhere –

Here is my polka dot dress!


And here is what Marc and I are just about to sit down to:


I cannot wait to floss it all out of my teeth.

Happy Friday to you all!

    1. It is seriously the most delicious sushi ever. If you make it out this way I am taking you there, it’s a promise! And thanks! The cheese bun was a learning experience, and I too love the dress! x

  1. why are you sew krooooell to your undernourished phanz? that looks so good! and, this is speekin azz yer granPHAWthur: that is one nice polkadot dress!

  2. Lol ahh, these things happen. Still, you made the right choice. Better to leave an anonymously smudged mirror than to be judged by the dentist. And that polka dot dress is really, really cute. I love dress-wearing season :)

  3. Cleaning your teeth before going to the dentist is akin to cleaning your house before the housekeeper arrives. Loved your adventure.

      1. Oh my, I didn’t mean to avoid brushing altogether, and I do brush a LOT and ALWAYS before going to the dentist. If you’re going a couple days without brushing, please stand at least three feet from anyone. :)

          1. Why, thank you. I just didn’t want to give the impression that you should avoid brushing your teeth altogether. THAT’S important because who wants to see rotten teeth and smell rotten breath?
