I do wonder, however: how I did not get teased for sporting my school colors on the bands that lined each bracket? I cringe to think of how dorky that was. What about you? Did you have braces in the past, or are you perhaps wearing them now?
Back in my early high school years, I rocked a mouthful of metal. In fact, my mom even got her bottom teeth realigned right along with me. Fortunately, my classmates didn't hassle me, calling out oh-so-original names like brace-face, railroad tracks, or tin-teeth. Kids can be so cruel.
