Last month, I arrived at the yoga center without having had the chance to take my afternoon merienda. So when I saw I was early, and my yoga friend Chona was there, I asked her to accompany me downstairs to buy some fries from McDo.
Chona dissuaded me, claiming we still had to do our warm-ups and we could be late for classes. Besides, she said, the center had a plateful of cashew nuts we could munch on.
I should have listened to my intuition. I got a cashew, took one bite and heard an awful crack. A crown at the upper right of my mouth had split in 2. So, a few days later, I had to go back to my ortho to have the crown replaced. The cost? P500 buckaroos!!!
That was the most expensive kasoy in my entire life! From now on, I will swear off kasoy and all things nutty until these braces come off….
