Not going to eat Combo's for awhile

There comes a time in your life where you do something embarrassing or stuff happens to ya that you would never tell in a million yrs. And then one day your old enough that it just doesn't matter. The things are kind of funny and your ok with it. That's my blog today. Let me share.

Thank you for the good thoughts but if you want to laugh out loud go right ahead, I can take it.

I've been working on this Amish Friendship bread for a little over a month now. I'm still wondering if its worth it. Its not frugal at all but still giving it a shot. Over on my other blog I've got a Friendship Bread Project going this summer


I have three breads made w/recipes. You'll need to have your starter tho. I have my positives and negatives on my breads and pic's.

Ok It was Banana Nut Bread, I needed three really ripe banana's ( this is not the story I really want to tell, just sharing about my bread and setting things up, plus a picture to share ) I didn't have three almost black bananas but my Mom did. I added this because isn't it cool when things you need are there in one way or another :). Or the fact Mom's always come through for ya : ) So bread making was on. Here's that picture.

Pretty huh! New bundt pan does it every time. Ok on with the good, bad and ugly.

I had to run to the store and get a few things for this bread like nuts plus those bananas weren't getting any fresher, so no time for breakfast or lunch . I grab a cola and a bag of Combo’s to eat on the run, those little cheddar Cheese pretzels things. May never eat them again , here's why : (.

While I was driving on the country road just munching away I hear and felt a crack in my mouth. I spit in my hand the pretzel (slowing down on the road) and seen something white, wiped it up and oh my gosh its a whole tooth, oh I was in shock that in my hand and mouth was someones tooth. I was so upset that I wanted to go back to the store and complain big time and hurl up chunks too. I had to contain myself.

Then the real shock-a-roo. I felt that something happen to my mouth, looked in the mirror and oh no , it was My tooth, My front tooth, My when I smile there’s a hole in my teeth. Oh no .

That nasty tooth that I was holding that I thought was someone’s else’s was my very own tooth. Can you believe this :(

I called my sister, who was still in town, I said buy some super glue quick and bring it over to my home, hurry . I was not going to leave the woods look'n like this.

She came in the door and said whats up, and I gave her a big grin, her mouth flew open then she said wheres the banjo’s : (.

Working with the glue I got my tooth stuck to my finger, I was panic now. I put a towel in the sink thinkin I might drop it down the drain, how worst could things get.

I got that tooth stuck back in with super glue , but it looks a little lower then what it was before : (. I was worried it might pop out again or worst in my sleep I’ll swallow it. If that happens I'm done with that tooth.

Good news I got a dentist set up for Monday early morning. Staying in the woods this weekend for sure .

So there, I can’t eat the bread b/c of the nuts . I can’t tell if its a nut or a tooth. Two things popped out good for me that day, my new bundt pan popped my bread right out and my tooth popped out.

Two things I'm glad I didn't do. Throw that tooth out the window while driving and bring that tooth to the manager in the store complaining while he/she is seeing I'm without my tooth :(.

I don't think they would buy my story.

Yes its sad, and I was in a panic, but all is well and the super glue is working just fine, I am a happy camper.

Now there's some embarrassing stories about myself that I will never tell. I don't care how old I get. But if you see me chuckling to myself I must be remembering and that's always a good thing.

Just chill'n out in the woods tell I get to the tooth store : ).

Have a great weekend. Stop by Monday for Plant Camp. See ya

Hey if your old enough to share an embarrassing story of yourself go ahead , I won't tell : )


  1. I have told or written about numerous embarrassing moment and have draft started on one.

    I am trying to trace some old pictures.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. That's just too funny, you had me in stitches. Yes, it is a good thing you did not throw the tooth away or go back to the store. Imagine what the look on the clerks face would have been!
    Thanks for sharing and giving me a good healthy laugh and of course seeing I am not the only one! :)

  3. OMGoodness! I hope, by now, the tooth is all reset and doing fine. Years ago, we were packed and on our way OUT OF TOWN on vacation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I said (Let's drop by the grocery and pick up a few treats for the long road trip). My husband said (don't get those sticky orange slice candies...they will pull off your crown!). "Nah, it will be fine" I replied. 10 minutes later we're all back in the car and on our way. At that moment, I bit into a delicious Brach's orange slice candy and....you guessed it. OFF came my crown!!! He was furious with me and before we could drive off to the wonderful Outer Banks of NC, we must drive to the dentist office where I beg them to simply glue it back on and let us be on our way. They did and we were...but I never ever heard the end of it. Amen.


    p.s. I have happily added your delightful blog to my blogroll!
