I have decided that chains and dental floss are practically the same thing. They are both useful and helpful, yes, but they both can also be quite inconvenient. If one was to be locked up with a chain, I feel that one would feel upset about the situation. Figuratively and physically. A figurative chain, in my opinion is worse than an actual chain. An actual chain is tangible, you can see it, feel it, find it's weak spot and bust free. Figurative chains, or the ones that hold us back in our imaginations, are not quite as easy to become free from. Sometimes they aren't chains at all, we just think they are because being stubborn human beings, we tend to run away with our emotions before truly analyzing situations, causing us to appear pig headed and all manner of other rude names. All of which are very accurate descriptions, I'm afraid.
So where am I going with all this? I find myself in a pickle. I want to just GO GO GO! But there are so many things telling me, "uh, no." Rude. For example, I want my car to not be a piece of junk and start when I want it to. I want it fixed. Alas, I have no money. Therefore, Dot (my car) sits, mocking me on the curb. I want to go to school without having to worry about all the debt I am going to be in when I am all done. I want to run away to California and build a life with the man I love. I want to stay here at home and help my mom as much as I can. But I hate home. LOVE pieces of home. It is just really hard to come back home after being on my own for a year... You understand, right? Am I a terrible person? I think not. A little bit of freedom and adult-ness, please? Is that too much to ask?? ........ yes? awesome.
So where does the dental floss come in? Dental floss is amazing for your teeth. It feels great and makes your smile great, too. Heaven forbid if you don't floss every day, the dentist KNOWS! I feel it is my duty to tell the dentist the truth always. I always feel like I am unworthy of my teeth when I leave the dentist office.
Dentist: How often do you floss Miss Leavitt?
Me: At least every year when I come and see you.
Dentist: How is school going?
Me: (trying to speak but his fingers are in my mouth...)
Dentists would make awesome spies. They have the ability to ask any question and their patients physically can't say anything, but their salivary glands go nuts, revealing the truth every time...
Anyway, dental floss is like a chain because A. It is rope like. B. It can be used as a trap. and C. It can strengthen your teeth like a chain can strengthen... snow tires?

That is all.
