Anyway, this mouth guard is clear, yet huge and bulky and I can barely close my lips over the damned thing. As I am sitting in the orthodontists chair, being told how often I have to wear this hideous thing, I am asked if I wouldn't mind showing it to another patient. You see, this other patient would have to be wearing the same mouth guard thing in a few weeks, so my orthodontist wanted to prepare her. Upon being asked this, I reply that I don't mind, and the girl is brought over. I stick the plastic mouth guard in my mouth, as instructed by my orthodontist, and then smile so this girl can see what's going on in my mouth.
Then, this c*nty girl busts into a laughing fit. Being a self conscience, gawky, 13-year-old girl, I am mortified and start to cry. Seeing how upset I am, this douchey blonde, cheerleader-type girl quickly comes up with some stupid excuse about how the mouth guard reminds her of her stupid friends and that it really isn't that bad.
I leave the room to compose myself. This is the moment. This is the moment that I will regret for the rest of my life. If I could relive the next five minutes and have a "do-over" I would pick that opportunity over winning a million dollars.
I should never of left the room. Here's how it should have gone down:
::Girl laughs at me::
After slapping the shit out of that terrible girl, I call her horrible names and tell her what a worthless human being she is. Upon departing the office, I locate her guardian and tell them what a worthless human being she is. I probably spit on the girl, too, at some point...
That. Would. Have. Been. Awesome.
But alas, that didn't happen. I left the office dejected and shamed.
So there you have it, the one thing in my life that I wish I would have done differently. I know it isn't much, but every once in a while, I relive that moment, and it haunts me.
