1. The awful, awful goop: Twitter: @BillyWhittemore 2. And choking on that awful goop while the orthodontist shoved it in your mouth: Twitter: @amandajvent 3. Just awful. Twitter: @DefinitelyaDbag 4. Not to mention sitting there looking like a dang science experiment beforehand: facebook.com 5. Which is almost as bad as having to wear those tiny, awful SpaghettiOs every single day: Twitter: @biancavllgs 6. ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. Twitter: @SydneyMais 7. And don't get me started on smiling like this every time someone took a picture: Twitter: @Waqas_Mansoor_ 8. "CHEESE!" Twitter: @AlessoLondon 9. Not to mention having to get a new toothbrush every two weeks: Twitter: @almamolinag 10. But the worst is when you felt like you'd been hooked all the time: Twitter: @fatemaaliA 11. I mean, it was the worst: Twitter: @ultsyeoI 12. THE WORST: Twitter: @umniverse 13. And don't even get me started on this fake-ass wax: Twitter: @IzziesLife_ 14. It's almost as bad as the pain after you got them tightened: Twitter: @BrendanThomas_ 15. Smiling through the pain: Twitter: @SummerSongGirl 16. And then trying to eat the day you get them tightened? That should be an Olympic sport: Twitter: @morganrinehold 17. And making fun of people who just got them tightened should be a criminal offense: Twitter: @aidaalasadi_ 18. But the worst? Literally just getting tapped lightly in the face and bleeding everywhere: Twitter: @kendelljoyce_ 19. Oh, and these monstrosities: Twitter: @ziggys__guitar 20. But nothing's worse than being told "only a few more months": Twitter: @legodollhouse 21. And being told to pick a new color, AS IF THAT HELPS: Twitter: @untoldamndamin 22. It's been so long... Twitter: @brookemain03 23. Only to have to immediately start wearing this after getting them off: Twitter: @Lebo__Ramokgopa IT NEVER ENDS.
