Life's Little Milestones

OK, the damned braces are doing something besides shredding the inside of my mouth and slurring my speech. Tonight, for the first time in my life, I ate an artichoke right-side-up. By this I mean that I could keep the leaves turned cupped-side-upwards and scrape the flesh off with my upper front teeth rather than turning the leaves perilously, drippily over to scrape them with my lower front teeth. My upper front teeth used to be juuuust longer enough than the teeth next to them to make that not exactly impossible, but certainly inefficient.

Wow. Progress.

Yeass. Given enough time, I might be fit for polite company someday.
