I went out last night for dinner and drinks with my friend. I ordered a panini and chips for dinner. I wasn't sure if the panini would be a good idea, but being a vegetarian I'm already pretty limited in what I can eat when I go out, so I thought I'd give it a go. It actually went suprisingly well! I managed to bite the panini ok, but biting the tomato in it was quite difficult and I ended up just having to eat massive slices of tomato in one go otherwise it would've been hanging out of my mouth! Needless to say I still had bits stuck in my braces despite the success of actually getting through it, so I had to go and clean my braces in the toilet in the restaurant/bar. I was too embarrassed to do it at the sinks in front of everyone so I went into a cubicle with my little brace cleaning brush and a mirror, and wiped the chunks of food on a piece of tissue! When I came out of the cubicle I managed to have a quick rinse in the sink while nobody was around!
So dinner was quite successful, but I got a bit annoyed later because some old man came up to me and my friend in a club and told me that I look about 17. For some reason people don't seem to think it's an insult to be told you look young and they just come up to you and say it. I'm 22, I don't want to be told I look like a teenager! I already look really young for my age, and I'm sure the braces aren't helping!
