Tin Grin



After many years of hesitation and self doubt, I finally got braces. This probably should have happened when I was 14, but here I am. This is the most uncomfortable thing I've ever done to my teeth, but I"m excited for the eventual outcome.

When I went to Wellpinit yesterday afternoon, I saw my friend Gene and his first comment was to call me "Tin Grin." It's a little unfair, actually. I gave him the title Champion Gene, and he returned the favor by giving me the title Tin Grin. Hmmm...

Well, in a strange way I was excited for the comments. Can you imagine? If someone said that to me when I was 14 I would have been devastated. Now I feel the comments give me an experience I missed as a youth. It's all a matter of perspective, I suppose.

You know, ugly Betty is not really that ugly. But at least I'm glad you don't think I look bad. I'll take it as a compliment.
