$170

We will be $170 poorer tomorrow.

After we came home from school today, Nas went upstairs to get something. I heard her scream my name and come running down the stairs. I asked her what was wrong and she showed me her retainer. Mangled. Chewed. Bent.

We both looked at Remy. He was very happy at first, then Nas showed him the retainer. Remy tried to take it out of her hands, and then decided to feel some remorse. I called the ortho and was told insurance won't cover the cost of a replacement. I can only hope Nas keeps this new retainer in the safety of her bathroom when she isn't wearing it.

The accused.

That's happened to me. I also lost one in the school garbage after lunch. Another time, I clicked it out of my mouth while innertubing on a lake. I think I've probably spent close to 1,000 on retainers.

That is AWFUL!!!! Goliath once ate the deed to my house, Chris's leather watch band, my Bible's back cover (leather), and many, many pockets of clothing where I had stashed gum. I have no advice...only sympathy!! PS - I don't know if that market sold whole pigs or dog bones....it smelled so funky in there we got out ASAP!!!
