Book Blogger Hop (8)

This week the question is: What is your favorite beverage while reading/blogging, if any?

I used to love drinking a lot of cherry soda. It's sweet, it's yummy, and it's a pretty chemical-red color. I'd always have a couple cans next to me as I read or blogged or wrote, until I had my annual trip to the dentist.

He hmm'd and haw'd and took some x-rays and fiddled around before making two announcements. One, my wisdom teeth were growing in and that they were hurting (yes, he actually told me that as if I wasn't aware of the pain). And two, I might have to get a root canal if that cavity in already-once-filled-tooth got any larger.

He told me that second announcement as in a cheery and upbeat tone, like it was the most marvelous thing he got to tell anyone in his whole life. I smiled, thanked him, and promptly went home to floss my teeth until they bled and brush them until the toothbrush snapped in half and guzzled several gallons of mouthwash.

Oh yeah, and I threw out all the candy and cherry soda.

Now, a month or two later, I have a rather large bag of candy sitting next to me, and I sometimes floss, but I still don't drink cherry soda. Nope, only water for me.


If you're hopping by, please leave a link to your Book Blogger Hop post! Thanks :D

Mine is iced tea, unsweetened but with a few herbal/flavored tea bags for a little zip. Mint or lemon in the summer. Chai spiced and/or vanilla in the winter.

My teeth may turn yellow, but they won't fall out:)

Yikes! I used to be addicted to meringue cookies.... until I went to the dentist and had to have 6 tiny cavities between my teeth taken care of. No more for me (and no hard candy, no toffee, no caramel).... so I'm sympathetic. ;)

Haha, oh man. Good luck on that root canal! Hopefully you won't ever need it. I usually just stick with water - or nothing! Here is my hop:http://seescootread.blogspot.com/2010/10/pull-on-your-bobby-socks-its-time-for.html

Hi, hopping over from England (isn't the internet a wonderful thing? :D) Love your blog. I hardly ever drink fizzy drinks any more, thanks to science lessons teaching us just how bad they are for the teeth - somehow that has stayed with me for years!

I hate going to the dentist, although I don't know anyone who can actually say they like it. I had to have a root canal once, trust me you don't want one. I usually drink coffee or peppermint tea. I'm a new follower.:) Have a great weekend.

I'm an old follower <3

Yeouch! I can't imagine having such a hardcore addition that I'd need root canal! My last (and only, I believe) cavity in 7th grade terrified me to bits, so I was always careful on what I ate/drank. Scary stuff! =x
