That's about average for Young. (My retainer arrived when I was 13/14; it took me a month to lose it -- also about average.)

I did mention to Spouse that losing a retainer was a pretty standard trope of childhood. But he never lost a retainer so...

We've been paying her a dollar each time she practices her guitar, and she's saving the money to pay for dog adoption fees. So a portion of that money is going into the retainer replacement fund.

She was Emphatically upset; mostly because she was afraid her father would hit the roof. I mentioned this to him before EG came to tell him, to smooth things out. It's going to be a pain, because she has to go in and have another impression taken, which means she'll miss some of day camp, which means I'll miss some work. Ah, well.

Yeah, going to Dad is a big deal. Sometimes it feels like your approaching Gods throne. Poor thing.

Oh, Dad's okay. I mean, I'm married to him, so I suppose I'm prejudiced. He gets loud when he's angry, but I get nasty, so we're about even. And in any case, he was a very Kind Daddy about the whole thing.
