I had to go to the dentist today b/c I am having some pain from my wisdom teeth coming in (oh, and the fact that I'm over a year past due for my cleaning...) I was dreading it b/c I have: overactive salivary glands, a small mouth, and very acidic saliva (i know you were just dying to know all of this about me, right?). All those combined mean that I have some really bad problems w/tarter buildup--but b/c it builds up I never get cavities...just gum disease ;) I hate going to the dentist b/c it hurts and they yell at me, but I couldn't keep putting it off for fear that my wisdom teeth would get infected or something miserable like that.
It was my first time with this hygenist and the first thing she said is "You have a tiny mouth! Is that as wide as you can open it? I don't know if he will even be able to get back there to pull your wisdom teeth!" Yikes. She actually ended up being very nice and giving me some good tips, and we scheduled a time to get one of my teeth out (we're going to have to pull them one by one as they come in due to my small mouth and lack of dental insurance. YUCK!)
Then, she told me that she wanted me to stop using my current toothbrush...and gave me this:
yep. i have a tigger toothbrush.
Just so you can get an idea of the size, here it is compared to a normal grownup toothbrush:
I feel silly.
Oh well...hopefully it helps! lol.
Also, I did not do the TWD recipe for this week, though I did still make one of the treats chosen previously (which is my favorite to date). I have noticed an odd trend...I have not made any of the bundt cakes except for the banana cake which was my 2nd recipe ever. Weird...I mean, I really do love bundt cakes--their simplicity, their "freezeability", the lack of decoration (I really do not like decorating cakes). But I've skipped all of them! I may go back and make the coconut tea cake from last week, but mocha is just not my thing anyway. Thanks anyway to Erin of When in Doubt...Leave it at 350 for picking this week's recipe!
