A Funny Photo Of Getting Braces

Getting Braces or  . . .

Who knew getting braces looks so funny?(Add a Caption in the Comments)

Who knew getting braces would look so funny? She even was able to pick a color for the bands.  I would have selected pink, but back in my day there were no colors.  If you know this funny kid, you can correctly guess that her bands are purple.

Today’s Tweetable Laugh Quote (just click on it, and it should tweet out):

People always ask me, ‘Were you funny as a child?’ Well, no, I was an accountant. ~Ellen DeGeneres

    • Actually, she picked the photo, she thinks it is really funny. Poor kid, has her mom’s sense of humor.
      My rule: I never post photos of my kids (or anyone else that can be identified) with out their expressed permission, anywhere – blog, FB, etc.

  10. I would have chosen purple too! :)

    Happy WW!

    • No, she has too good of a sense of humor. She picked it. Actually, I waited weeks to be sure she was ok with me running it, but every week she said “It’s funny mom.”

  15. Hmm…hope they’re not painful…

  24. I love that she let you take her picture! :) And purple is an awesome color – since I didn’t get braces until I was an adult, they had color band options, too – I’d have the colors changed to coordinate with any events coming up (like my brother’s wedding – teal was the color of us bridesmaids, so I had teal bands put on to match my dress!) :)

  30. Man, braces bring back some bad memories.

    Join my blog hop as well, I would be delighted!

  31. I was so glad I was able to avoid needing them, I’ve got to thank my Dad for my great choppers!

    I probably would have begged for invisalign! :-)

    That’s a great shot!

    Happy WW, thanks for the linky, I linked up!

  33. I wish that my braces had been purple. I remember I had a big smile in my 6th grade picture not realizing that I had smoked salmon in my braces!
