Re: What was your first meal/food after braces?

Cream of carrot soup, chicken a la king, and tiramisu, from the cafeteria of my grandmother's nursing home. She said she wanted to be the first person after my ortho to see me on Brace Day, so I visited her right after my appointment, and it was lunch time. I was afraid of eating right away, but foo...

I work on the phone, and talking was unbearable today. Wax was of no help because the ulcers had already formed. I ordered a Morgan Bumper ...

I was 28 when I got my appliance at the bottom to fix my overbite, had it on for a year and a half, and I'm now 29 and got my actual braces on yesterday. 30 to 36 months sentence.
