The girl with the golden teeth

Last weekend I acquired two new trinkets to adorn our cabinets.


Yes, those are teeth.
Yes, they are painted gold.

Weirded out?  (Hubby totally was at first.)  Let me explain.

Last Saturday I visited the dentist two cavities filled.  These were my very first cavities ever, so I was nervous about what was going to happen.  Before starting, the dentist used a mold of my teeth to help  explain the procedure.  As I listened, I couldn't stop staring at my molds.  How could something look so creepy and interesting at the same time?  I don't know what came over me, but I asked him if I could take my molds home.  Surprisingly, he agreed to make another copy and give them to me.

So I brought them home and painted them gold.

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
And when life gave me my first two cavities, I made myself some golden teeth.

  1. And now, in the event life give you even MORE cavities, ones that require extraction, you can take your new molds to another dentist and have him give you dentures!

  2. ahahha you know when people have a case of acute cholecystitis because of their gallstones, after the surgery, the gallstones are put in a container and the patient gets to keep them! i have heard some people make necklaces out of them...hehe i think that was a joke, but maybe they do!
