When I was in high school, I wore orthodontic braces on my teeth for three years. I hated the damned things. They were made of stainless steel and I always felt as though my mouth was full of some foreign substance. I couldn’t wait to get them off because I thought they made me look ugly.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I think the young man in today’s photo posts looks pretty darned sexy, despite the braces in his teeth. Would you agree?
I went to bed pretty early last night, around 10:30. I read for a little while before falling asleep, and I didn’t wake up until eight this morning. I think I needed the rest.
After I shaved and made my bed, I brewed coffee and made myself a simple breakfast. Then I retrieved the newspaper from my front step. I tried reading articles about Robert Mueller’s appearance before two congressional committees, but, let’s face it, Mueller didn’t have much to say. 🙁
I’m in a great mood today, since yesterday afternoon I received an e-mail from my publisher agreeing to publish my latest novel, a 90,000-word monster that took me over a year to write. My published told me she loved my characters and found herself totally immersed in the story from the book’s first page, and coming from her, that’s high praise.
When I write a book, I never know if people will like it or no; it’s impossible to gauge until someone qualified reads the manuscript and offers comments. Now I know all my efforts last year and earlier this year have paid off. 🙂
I don’t have a lot on my plate today. I have an afternoon appointment about a 40-minute drive from here that won’t take long. I’ll take a two-mile run when I get home. Then, this evening, I drive into the city to spend time with my oldest friend, drinking a few beers and dining on takeout. It’s always a good time.
Have a nice Thursday, everyone. And if your boyfriend has braces on his teeth, be sure to tell him he still looks might cute. He’ll love you for it. 🙂
