No Cheese Please!

In the wake of all that is going on in the world - politics, the recession, rising gas prices, unemployment - I need to discuss something of equal importance... my TEETH! Yes, everyone, my teeth.

While shopping at the mall a few weeks ago, a young man (don't I sound old) looked at me and said, "Wow, you have such a nice smile...", as I smiled sheepishly and thanked him, I was feelin' myself a little. I kept walking through the make-up counters with a little extra pep in my step until I caught a glimpse of my smile in the long mirrors. I was HORRIFIED! My teeth looked like I had been sucking on a block of cheddar cheese! Now, don't get me wrong I brush and floss, but as we get a little older sometimes it's just not enough. My teeth were just plain yellow!

I quietly tucked my lips together making sure a smile would not be seen in this mall again and made my way to a drugstore. I decided to try one of those whitening strips you see on TV (yes, this is a testimonial) I bought the Crest White Strips 10-day program, well... can I say FANTASTIC, after about 2 days I noticed a difference and by the 9th day I was almost ready to stop out of the fear of blinding someone with my new white teeth.

I am usually not a big believer in stuff like this, but if you need a little bump in self-esteem and appearance, try these strips! Now of course I never turned the box over to see what was actually whitening my teeth, I'm sure it wasn't organic, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! No more cheese for me!


  1. Ok, I am sitting here laughing my but off because YOU ARE CRAZY!!!!!!!!! If your teeth is the color of cheese then what the heck does mine look like---you know I am a cheese-aholic. OMG!!!!! I guess I better shut my mouth quick and head to walgreens ASAP.

  2. Dawn,

    You are too funny!...I am going to try the Crest Strips too!
