show your bones

This is a plaster cast moulding of my teeth before I got braces (a good seven years ago). I found it in my bedside table when I was having a mini clean-out of my room. I don’t know why I still have it. To be honest I don’t know why I took it home with me in the first place. My orthodontist asked me if I wanted to take it home as a keepsake. I guess I thought better it stays with me than in the display cabinet at the orthodontist. Yes, there was a display cabinet. An entire wall of other people’s teeth. I would have to look at it from the dentist’s chair. It was kind of creepy. Anyway, I added the pink ribbon to make it less creepy. I think it acts as a nice reminder to look after my teeth.

    It might be a little creepy, but I think this is the COOLEST thing! Personalized art — you made it yourself! Kinda.

    I actually really love this and think the pink ribbon makes it just a tad creepier, in a very cool desirable way! Like conceptual art or something!
