I’m going out for a walk. I’ll see the town by myself. My first view of the empire I’m going to conquer!

She fled from the house.

She stared with seriousness at every concrete crossing, every hitching-post, every rake for leaves; and to each house she devoted all her speculation. What would they come to mean? How would they look six months from now? In which of them would she be dining? Which of these people whom she passed, now mere arrangements of hair and clothes, would turn to intimates, loved or dreaded, different from all the other people in the world?

Me to everybody

Catch Me If You Can

1) My teeth before all the procedures—I had had braces in high school and this was the end result after several years with them. We didn’t realise at time that the remaining baby teeth would ultimately lead to deterioration in the jaw bone. Bad news. Silly smile.

2) After my first bone graft—June 2013

3) One week after 8 baby teeth pulled, 7 implants, three bone grafts—January 2014

4) This was my smile for 9 months. In April I had my last implant placed. I had a “flipper” in the meantime for aesthetic purposes, but it was uncomfortable, I rarely wore it. One loose screw, one surprise surgery (they neglected to tell me there would be a “slight” procedure to place the healing abutments prior to making the impressions), lots of pudding, some blood, plenty of inadvertent drooling, meth jokes, awkward explanations, and years of waiting…

5) My final x-ray. Stronger jaw bones, straight teeth, no gaps.

6) Cheese!

The girls at work keep e-mailing teeth-related photos from all depths of the internet.

My teeth are in. They’re mine and they’re solid. My gums are a purple bruised mess. I’ll never complain about pain when getting a tattoo ever again.

I’ve never had a gap-free grin. I’ve never felt what it’s like to have normal-sized molars. Of course things are still in odd places and it’s not a perfect smile—but I didn’t want celebrity-teeth. I wanted mine.

No amount of throbbing will deter my smile today.

I did this at Hallmark a lot when I was supposed to be straightening cards. The only thing you can do to make a dull job bearable is dance.
