The newest long-standing tradition among brides is to but of course make sure her pearly whites are in fact pearly.
So tradition being very important to me,I started the 3 week regimen required by Crest Whitening Strips.
Besides for its being smelly, sticky, sour, stingy, and plain old gross, I got a taste of the future.
There is a definite fear of the unknown. What will happen,
the anxious anticipation,
navigating the new,
prepping for problems
And I will be avoiding this sensation if I ever need dentures (G-d forbid!!) You know that video clip of the skydiving granny… I always wondered what that would be like. I can now sympathize with her.
You see, one day while wearing THOSE strips for the necessary 30 minutes, my olfactory sense detected something amiss. In a preeminent strike, it defensively made my nose sneeze.
And the strips flew out of my mouth.
I smiled politely as I peeled one strip off my mother’s shaitel, and the other off her pocketbook…Fun stuff…I can’t wait to grow up.
