my friends and I decided to have a little party-- because we weren't freshmen anymore of course. we were playing around on my friend Nikki's mule (not the animal, the ATV). and I got into a fight with the roll bar. needless to say, the bar kicked. my. trash. which resulted in this wonderful evolution of my teeth.
note: some of these pictures are less than stellar, but you're supposed to be looking at my teeth... or the lack thereof...
|these babies are my real permanent teeth. please notice how practically perfect they were. we just can't have nice things...|
|the real ones. a second look.|
get ready for a BIG change.... (I don't have access to the pictures that were taken that night at the dentist, but if I ever get those bad boys, I might post them. might. they're kind of really gross.)

and I have been on a first name basis with the staff 3 out of the 4 dental staffs that have helped me.
I personally, wouldn't recommend this to anyone, but it has made for a lot of good stories and learning experiences!
