#1: The Backwards Retainer
Matt69 from Tucson, AZ, USA
I got braces when I was a
junior in college. Most of my friends did not know I was
getting them until I happened to run into them and show them.
Those incidences were embarrassing enough. One day I was
studying in the library at a table with a couple of other
I wore a bite plate, which is like a retainer
on the roof of your mouth and which keeps you from biting on
your back teeth. I was playing with it in my mouth and
it happened to be backwards when a cute girl asked me what
time it was.
I was caught like a fool, since I could not
talk with that thing floating around in my mouth. So I
had to reach in my mouth, pull it out, and then tell her the
time. She stared at me with a funny smile like she was
amused, but I was so embarrassed!
