Today was my last Ortho visit before the braces come off. So naturally, they made it as annoying and inconvenient as possible.
My mouth is banded shut again - just like it was post-surgery. What this is supposed to accomplish in the next 5 days, I'm not sure. I think it's an inside practical joke. "Sure! What the hell!" I said. After all, when you've suffered through parts of your jaw being cut and re-attached to your skull, this is a walk in the park.
Also, my new computer arrived. The boy put it together last night, periodically asking me to check out how "awesome" the motherboard was and how "sexy" the RAM looked. Ummm.. Okay. I don't think he was pleased with my reactions.
All that's left is to load the operating system (and a million drivers and all the software). He suggested I take a stab at it... and I was game until he said, "If you hear a sharp, high-pitched noise when you turn it on, it's the fan so you might want to---." I cut him off.
