Sorry I’ve been away, but I’ve so much to show you…
I’ve hated smiling for years. (Refer to above picture) I abhorred picture time and would stretch my mouth as wide as I could, in hopes that no teeth would show.
That is, if the flat out running away wasn’t an option. Most times, it was not, sad to say.
But as much as I dreaded pics and my photo sniper family and the subsequent hours spent, trying to filter out the many off-guard moments captured in time, I dreaded going to the dentist more.
Because it never ended happily for me.
That came to a screeching halt this summer when I decided that I was tired of ducking my head or putting Duck’s big toothy grin in front of me as camouflage.
After all, this has been my breakout year. The year I took back my life and walloped the hell out of some big ole dragons.
A side note?
He’s happier too, at not having to be front and center or placed at weird angles, as my human smile shield.
It wasn’t easy.
Sure did hurt a ton.
Took almost the whole summer, but its been worth all the effort.
Yep, this is me.
Oh yeah, before I forget.
Did I mention I’m back and better than ever? Consider it mentioned. 😉
