I had the strangest dream this morning...

We were watching that show Brat Camp last night, and I think I dreamed I was at Brat Camp -- or something similar. Anyway, I was eating something (that I wasn't supposed to be eating?) and one of the brackets on my braces on my lower teeth broke off. So I went to tell the counselor person, but as I was talking, the other brackets started falling off and pretty soon I was coughing them up and spitting them out until all of my lower braces had fallen off. And there was something about we were in this oriental silk shop and we kept going to parts of it where we weren't supposed to go.

Weird.

Oddly enough, the part about the braces kind of happened in real life. We were on vacation at the Grand Canyon and I took a big bite of a piece of apple and the wire connecting my top braces popped right out of its little socket in the back. We had to go to Flagstaff or somewhere and find an orthodontist open like three days after Christmas for them to put it back in, because my whole mouth hurt; the wire popping out had released all the tension on my top teeth, causing them to ache, and the loose wire also cut up the inside of my cheek pretty badly. No amount of dental wax could prevent that.

God, I hated having braces. But I like having nice, straight teeth.

Didn't you have a book about interpreting dreams? Doesn't loss of ones teeth mean something specific? Too little spleep perhaps.....

Loss of teeth is supposed to be about self esteem issues according to my book, but my friend Lucy told me it was about money issues.

And besides which, it wasn't my TEETH falling out, but my braces...

Who knows...
