In which my teeth are sticking out


Guys! I know I haven’t written in a while but I won’t apologize because by now you should know what a slacker I am.


Yesterday, I was in the orthodontist’s office, when my phone rang. WHAT? You didn’t know that I had an orthodontist appointment? Well I did.


Apparently, my canines (those are teeth that I have) are getting crowded out by all my other teeth (who must be Trump supporters since they’re BULLIES) and they’re turning and sticking out.


I noticed it myself but the dentist pointed out that the process would continue and basically, I’d look like a snaggeled tooth tiger. I don’t want to look like that so I figured that I should get them fixed.


SO … long story short, yesterday I was sitting in the office waiting for my consult when my phone rang. Now normally I don’t even answer when it’s an out of state number because my cell has gotten on some annoying lists and also that stupid cruise line is always blaring in my ear offering me discount cruises. AS IF!!!


But, for some reason I answered the phone and it was this guy from New Jersey saying that he had SEEN AN AD FOR MY ART FROM THE FURNITURE MARKET and HOW DID HE GO ABOUT BUYING SOME!


Very frankly, I almost had a heart attack and died. Seriously, this has never happened to me before. I explained that I was at the orthodontist (I did not explain the entire snaggle tooth thing though) and could I return the call in an hour.


After the appointment (UGH … INVISALIGN) I came home and called the guy. He had apparently seen one of my paintings in an advertisement from the furniture market (Sweet free advertising!!!) and was interested in buying a FEW because he was opening a home staging business.


The only problem was that he wanted to know shipping rates and I’ve never shipped anything by myself before so I had no clue.


I spent the afternoon trying to figure out how to ship oversize paintings and how much they would cost.


Long story short … IT COULD BE VERY EXCITING.


So now I’m trying to figure all that out and it’ll be 3 weeks before my new stupid Invisalign stuff is here.


Of course, there’s LOT’S of other drama going down too but I won’t go into all that right now.


See ya

    The gallery that I work at ships large painting all the time. We package them in bubble wrap then cardboard and a shit load of packing tape the mail them. Usually for under $50 Can. If the painting is going to the US, we make a crate out of sterofoam insulation ( the stuff with the tinfoil) and wood and ship it by UPS. Good luck.
