Man, sometimes you get a piece of food stuck in your braces that just won't come out. Like a little string of meat of lettuce or something that wraps around the bracket or arch wire just right. I carry little toothpick/flossers in my car, along with this tiny little brush for getting between there and I have a regular toothbrush at work but even those sometimes won't get it. The WaterPik is the god of getting every single atom of material out(thanks for the idea Ami!) but that is only at home so if I get something stuck in there at lunch I just have to keep tonguing it and tonguing it and swishing water in my mouth and brushing my teeth and then...in a magical moment, it will come unraveled just enough...and I yank it out...and it's like a huge orgasm or like pulling out one of those boogers that is a mile long and just keeps coming out and out of your sinus like a tapeworm until you get that feeling that you are CLEAN. And then life is good again. God that is a good feeling.

I thought I was the only one who enjoyed pulling out mile long boogers. Oh, the blessed vacuum that follows the extraction! Tasty too.

Digging out an ingrown toenail...that was pure freaking bliss.

Oh, it's an art. It's right there. You can feel it. Just right at the tippety-tip of my fingernail. Right fucking there! Why the fuck did clip my nails this morning? Almost. Oh. Wait. Yes? Yes! Got it!

Oh Christ, I feel so much better. I need a cigarette.




Or maybe that's just me.

My life is devoid of meaning.
I never get boogers like that. I really feel like I'm missing out, man.

LMAO, awe, this makes me sad to know what other hilarious entries I have missed over the last few years. I still laugh to myself about every 6 months thinking about your "zit on you neck" entry.
