Retainer Strangeness

So I've had this little wire on the back of my front lower teeth ever since I got my braces off the second time (yes, my teeth were so hideous, I needed two go-rounds with the braces). So that's about nine years to get used to having a little wire against my tongue forever and always.

And then I took a bite of gummy Japanese sweet substance, and pop! went the wire. I was vaguely baffled by this, since only one end was detached which left me a snaggle-edged wire in my mouth. So up to the bathroom I went to poke and prod it. After a few twistings, the bracket on the other side popped completely off.

So now, I am a one-bracket no-wire wonder. This, in itself, is not terribly remarkable.

But the sensation of feeling my lower back teeth against my tongue!

Smooth, unmarred by metal....so, so smooth. I am ridiculously distracted by this sensation. Even as I type, my tongue runs luxuriously unhindered against the gum line, resting against the enamel, unpoked by metal wire.

Hahahaha, I've got one of those things, too. I always wonder what it'll feel like if/when it comes out...

*glee* Smooth teeth against tongue and...whoops, wrong place.

It was terrific to see you on Saturday night and I really would like to see you again. I miss hanging out with you. =)

It's really fascinating how you get used to certain "foreign bodies" on your preson and regard them as part of yourself. I'll give you a prosaic example - undershirts. I wear dress shirts to work and I always wear white cotton undershirts underneath. Putting a dress shirt on the naked body makes me feel undressed. Go figure.

I accidentally hit random and I got you
When I got my braces off I got 2 retainer wires (on top and on bottom). Two Christmases ago I was biting into my aunt's home made caramel and it just popped off. I ended up taking a pair of pliars to get the other side off. But anyways...omg I loved the feeling. I swear I ran my tongue over and over it for about 2 months. Even now typing about it I am doing it, ha!

Anyways...ta ta

::giggle:: sensuality really knows how to come and smack you sometimes, doesn't it? The strangest sensations can be the most intriguing...

(Meet Kat, the czarina of the random search button!)

Funny: When I got my braces off, the feeling of my smooth teeth against my lower lip (or was is my lip against my gums?) creeped me the heck out. In a weird way, I'd grown to like the wires. O.o

Wheeeeeeeeee, Random, Random
When I got my braces off, my teeth felt all slimy because they were so smooth and it wierded me out for at least a week, which was when it started to feel normal again...and oh so nice.
