I'm kind of grumpy today (can you tell?) as it was an orthodontist day and my teeth are throbbing. This makes me irritated! Why did I do this? If someone over 30 asked me if getting braces is worth it I think I would say no. If you have a child with braces buy them anything they want and tell them you are sorry.
Today at my appt I walked in with an older man who was being a bit too bossy with his wife. He was dressed in shiny cowboy clothes (from the 80's) and his voice was loud and know-it-all-ish. He annoyed me greatly. He announced as he came in:
"The old cowboy is back"
He began to tell his life story to anyone who would listen, he is a radio DJ (AM for sure) hence the overly-melty loud voice.
I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I couldn't do it with the fake cowboy.
And then as if I sent a prayer Fed EX to God the door opened and in walked a real cowboy. An old coot with a crunched and dusted cowboy hat and even jingly spurs on his boots. The only thing missing was that cowboy music that plays when two are about to draw.
The fake cowboy looked at the real cowboy and didn't say another word.
And it was lovely.
When we move from here I will miss the West, the real cowboys and the horses...I love this about Texas. It is a culture all its own.
