Lost Retainer Resurfaces (Just in the Nick of Time)

Written by mom - One Comment

Just the other day, we finally gave up looking for Son #1’s lost retainer. Unfortunately, it looked like it was time to bite the bullet and pony up a wad of cash for a new one. I got on the phone with the orthodontist’s office to make the appointment. As I was funneled through their automatic call system, I decided to give our son’s room another quick look, even though he had already cased the joint on more than one occasion.

I rifled through his dresser-top menagerie of stuff… No retainer. Meanwhile, I kept pushing the appropriate buttons on the phone in hopes of soon hearing a human voice. I stuck my head under his bed to have a look around… Lo and behold, there was his retainer, just laying there in plain view! It had taken me a total of thirty seconds to find it! Grrrr! Apparently, searching for things is not our son’s forte. Imagine if I found the conspicuous retainer after we had bought a new one!

It’s strange the way things work out. This was similar to calling to check on a package that should have already arrived and having it coincidentally show up in the mail that very same day. Only this time, it was the magical re-appearance of a retainer while on the phone with an orthodontist. To all the people out there who’ve paid to replace a retainer… tsk, tsk. Now you know your treasure was only a (magic) phone call away.

Maybe this is the world’s luckiest retainer.

  1. You always find things in the last place you look for them. Of course, that’s because you stop looking…

    Glad that you got it back and did not have to buy a new one.
