Ice cream is a cruel choice of topics today, because for my son, the next eighteen months will see no: gummy bear ice cream, raw carrot ice cream, no turtle sundae, no beef jerky ice cream, no Milky Way concrete mixers, no skittle or gummy bear toppings, no nut sprinkles, no bubble gum, popcorn, crisp French fried waffle cones, no corn on the cob, no choco tacos.
As I sit in an orthodontist office, my son is getting wired in the next room… it’s braces day for him. Thirty two teeth straightened for $6,080- that’s $190. per tooth. They’ll be worn for eighteen months. That’s approximately $11. a day, and only .35 cents per tooth per day…. incase you are like me and needed to know that. I feel so much better when I think about the cost broken down that way.
Now that I’m no longer worried about money, I can concentrate on the hope I have they do green wires in honor of Saint Patrick’s Day. Naomh Sásta Patrick Lá!
(I was tempted to write something snarky about Marijuana flavored ice cream, but I’ll let it go.)

Vanilla, chocolate, or something else entirely?
