so. i got braces last friday afternoon. i was not 100% sure that would be the day, i thought it would be molds and pictures and xrays, but walked out with my upper teeth all braced up. i might’ve been in denial, or maybe i really didn’t think about it (that’s probably it), but i was not prepared. i had no advil in my purse, i had no soft snacks or foods, i had even just bought a new pack of gum. i knew i’d be uncomfortable, but
my inner cheeks were kinda chewed up, but i’m a nervous biter, so it’s usually chewed up in there anyway. but the ache, omaude, the ache. all this complaining just to tell you that i don’t care for any soft foods, and i’ve been a crabby crab crab for the past 4 days. in the beginning i could only eat whatever i could squoosh on the roof of my mouth with my tongue. soooo… strawberry shortcake.
and i put it in the push pop containers because everything is better in push pop containers and i have enough of them to make 80bazillion this way. mmmmm…..
the whip cream flattened out a little, next time i’ll add more. and maybe a little strawberry juice.
perfect soft-ish treat for folks who don’t like soft food. things are settling down and not as painful, but i think i’ll enjoy a few more of these!
