The Glamorous Life
It is 8am. I am putting on a brave face in the dentist chair. What brought me here to this terrifying place? The Mean Girls Club. What is the Mean Girls Club? A little background... The Mean Girls Club is a New Orleans clique that takes great pleasure in tearing down others.
Over the last year, I tolerated -- "We don't even like you!" or "We only hang out with you because you give us money (rent)." Being called a "midget" every weekend made me feel like Cinderella with her ugly step sisters. I often felt mentally abused.
The last straw was when the dumbest Mean Girl poked fun of my "brown tooth". I really didn't have a brown tooth, but over the years it stopped matching the other teeth. I never thought anyone would notice, but leave it to the Mean Girls to discover it and poke fun of me.
One by one... clique members approached and asked if I had a brown tooth. I feigned ignorance, but I could see the dumb one recruiting others to torment me. If a handsome guy approached me, the dumb one would get up and gleefully whisper my horrible secret. OMFG! How much more cruel can these people get?! Why do I even hangout with them?!
I had to explain that the cost of redoing the crown and matching it with to rest of the teeth would cost upwards of $2,000. (crown + laser whitening) It was at this moment I made a vow to exit the clique forever.
It was this memory that kept me going strong as the dental hygienist stuffed my mouth with gauze. Four rounds of laser treatment over two hours left my teeth super sensitive. Then my temporary crown was placed. I was anxious to see if all the misery and pain were worth it.
When the dental hygienist gave me a hand mirror, I almost cried tears of joy. I had a beautiful white smile. No more could I be tortured by The Mean Girls Clique. And that, my friends, is so fetch!
