Look how crooked the teeth were when grandma-ma first had her braces put on. It took 8 months to straighten grandma-ma's teeth. It was hard to eat sometimes and I had to cut my food up in small pieces like you would prepare for toddlers. The braces did not hurt, but after each new wire that was put on, my teeth would be numb for a few days. Now that the braces are off, grandma ma is looking forward to eating something very special. Something that she can only get in New York. Can you guess what it is? It is a slice of a New York Pizza pie. Will I get a slice when I visit the NY raviolis? We shall see.
