perfection in a bite.

we have quite the story for you.

three nights ago, veronica lost her retainer.
she took it out, put it in the case, and then dropped the case on the ground by accident.
so, naturally she reached down to pick it up, but when she did, there was no retainer inside the case.

she looked high, and low.
she searched under her bed, dresser, desk, papers, and laundry,
but it was no where to be found.

two nights ago, taylor b. also lost her retainer.
she put it in her mouth just before she went to bed,
and when she woke up, it was gone.
she also searched under her bed, papers, dresser, bags---everything.

two retainers, gone. no trace. no signs. no clues.

last night taylor b. was reading (eclipse, of course),
and at about 11:30 pm there was a loud pounding on the wall.
she looked up, confused, and then went back to reading.
30 seconds later, the pounding returned.
it was clearly coming from the wall separating her room from veronica's room.
she then heard some rustling coming from the same location,
and almost got up to go search for the source of the rambunctious noise,
but naturally, she continued to read. duh.

as the hours ticked on, both taylor b. and veronica were retainer-less.
in a last crusade to maintain their straightened teeth,
apartment 301 conducted a final search. of ages.

luckily, taylor b. had a headlamp and shakeable flashlight.
so, taylor o. & veronica began the search in veronica's room,
while taylor b. searched in her own room.
just then, taylor b. spotted the little red plastic piece very
located centrally under her bed.
"i found mine!!" ---taylor b.
"you did?!" ---veronica.
"there it is!"---taylor o.

just as taylor b. pull hers from the dust,
taylor o. spotted veronica's, located near the very back wall, underneath her bed.
luckily, taylor b. has arms any monkey would be envious of,
and the recovery of the retainer from the dusty darkness was not an issue.
coincidence? obviously not.

what can you take from this story?
clearly, that retainer bandits need to be added to the list
of stereotypes associated with provo.
now if that doesn't give you nightmares,
we don't know what will.

on a lighter and brighter note,
veronica and taylor b. have retainers to wear
at night, so their teeth won't go crooked.
but you already knew that. rofc.

"that title is perfect. in more ways than one." ---taylor b.

we love that---taylor & taylor.
