And We've Reached A New Low...
This is what I wore when I went to visit my boyfriend at work.
It wasn't the romantic... "oh, it paaaaaains me to spend an entire day without you I just HAD to drive 40 minutes to see your face... no, I love YOU more"... kind of visit. It was for a legit reason. My Manfriend is a dentist and I was GOING THROUGH IT! An area of my gum was bleeding for a couple of weeks every time I brushed/flossed and it was getting worse and worse. The front of my mouth had what looked like a little cut on it, but behind that was the real problem. I could not figure out what it was, so I just ignored it for a while, brushed regularly and rinsed with Listerine like 3 times a day (because you know... why would you get a second opinion from the dental professional you co-habitate with? DUH?).
Finally it started bleeding at work after I finished my lunch. It was bleeding LIKE CRAZY. I was talking with my mouth uncomfortably closed and my boss (who I am now on a whole new level of familiarity with ) said.... "let me see". So.. I tipped my head back while we shoved a mirror INTO my mouth. He then proceeded to take a picture of the reflection for me on my cell and I sent it to "The Doc". Yes... that happened. Head back. Blood. Mirror in Mouth. Boss. Picture of my grill. It was as uncomfortable as you are imagining. Especially when he said... "stop breathing... you're fogging up the mirror". (Annnnd... we've reached a new low.) Just your average day at the office, wouldn't ya say?
So, I went to see the Manfriend at work... a popcorn kernel. YUP. A friggin' popcorn kernel. It got stuck in my teeth... I flossed... and somehow it got jammed INTO my gum and was causing me a whole HEAP of problems. The grossest part... the last time I ate popcorn was 2 weeks ago. GROOOOOOOOSS. So... consider this your public service announcement. #1. Never trust a popcorn kernel. #2. Flossing is for suckers.
Side Note: I put this lipstick on AFTER my teeth cleaning. Can you imagine going to the dentist with this stuff on? Hands all in your mouth... spit everywhere...water... the suction tube thing? You'd walk out looking like a cross between Heath Ledger as The Joker and a Crack Ho. Not good. NOT good.
