Last week, I went to the orthodontist only to find the door locked and a sign saying that all appointments were cancelled due to "sterilization issues."
Being involved in animal rescue, I immediately thought this meant my orthodontist was being neutered. He couldn't keep his appointments because he was currently under the knife, or he had just had the procedure done and had acquired some kind of unspeakable infection.
And now, the mental image of him holding a big bag of ice to his crotch is traumatizing me to no end.
On the plus side, the appointment was rescheduled for today, and to my surprise, he took my braces off!
Freedom, finally! I am whitening my brace-free teeth as I type! Hooray!!
