Today I was reminded of a favorite Friends episode.
It is episode #6.08 and is titled,
"The One With Ross's Teeth"
One night a year we have a silent auction at the pre-school. I just happened to win the auction to get my teeth whitened. I happily went and used my gift certificate today. People....you do not just walk in the office and have them zap your teeth beautiful so you can walk out twenty minutes later. No. No you don't. It is a three....yes I said THREE hour process. If you can not sit for long periods of time with your mouth strapped open......stuffed full of crap then I do not recommend this to you. It was a lesson in patience today my friends. Twice I had to silently talk myself out of panic attacks. Oh yeah and I had to pee really really bad. Did I mention that it took three hours? I laid there and giggled to myself thinking about the episode of Friends when Ross leaves the bleaching gel on his teeth longer than called for. Then it wasn't so funny anymore when I wondered if my teeth would later float about the room like a beacon when I turned off the light. Then it became funny again because I thought what if they do glow in the dark? Cooooool. Well all is said and done and nobody told me how sensitive my teeth would be afterwards. I was fine earlier but now my teeth are screaming. It is like tiny sticks of dynamite are going off in each tooth. Would I do this again? NO!! Do my teeth look nice? HELL YES!!!!
Ahhhhhhh the price of beauty.
