Strength of Duct Tape vs My Front Tooth Duct Tape Won Tooth lost Bad Luck on a roll..

If I thought that I was having a streak of Bad Luck Last week let me tell ya it CAN GET WORSE!
You see that beautiful happy Smile not perfect but its good...
Have you ever in your life given any thought to the actual strength of  DUCT TAPE? Me either all I know is it works great on any surface and I always have a couple of rolls around when something needs held together till I can figure something else out.
I have a story to tell you that you are not gona believe.. Yes it is true   If it were not for bad luck I would have no luck at all.
First let me say.... I couldn't get into the dentist today so that tooth that crumbled apart two weeks ago & had a temp filling in it did not get fixed today...ugg..... Yes it still hurts and the weekend was miserable.

Now as we all know the good Lord works in mysterious ways so maybe just maybe he knew I was going to be messing with Duct Tape tonight maybe he didn't. I will never know for sure but I really wanted to see that dentist today...

Since I couldn't get in I decided to get things done that just couldn't wait...Like a rip in the Red Neck Shed Tarp.... Awwww...Yes this is where the Duct Tape comes in... I'm gona fix that hole with Duct Tape..
So I'm out there ripping off pieces of Duct Tape and putting them on the hole...all of a sudden a gust of wind came up and just as I was getting ready to stick the piece of duct tape on it blew into my face and it stuck to my front teeth... Which by the way are both capped. No my teeth are always dry from the Sjogren's Disease so that tape didn't have any problem sticking to my capped teeth.

Now any normal human being would simply yank on the duct tape to pull it off...Right?
Now I know that I have been telling you all how crazy I have been going so maybe I'm not normal..but I try to think I am over all.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO... I did exactly what anyone else would have done, I yanked on the tape to get it off my teeth....
I'm here to tell ya .......BIG AND I MEAN BIG MISTAKE...!!
This is how bad my luck has gotten in the last year.....Thyroid goes Nuts-Shakes & Muscle Jerks-Visit #1 to the hospital-Thyroid gets worse-Thyroid removed-Incision Splits open with stupid stitches that will not disolve-Severe Infection-Tooth Crumbles apart-Temp filling-Tooth ache-Can't get into the Dentist & I'm sure not the last piece of bad luck to happen to me this year...... my run in with Duct Tape!
 Are you ready... Another Not so Pretty Picture...

Duct Tape was the winner it yanked my cap right out of my mouth. Called the dentist back and begged but he was gone for the day... So I have an appointement for 9:00 in the morning.

So I ask..... did the good Lord Know that I was going to have a run in with Duct Tape and lose my tooth so he made sure I waited till morning so the Dentist could fix both teeth.... Makes ya wonder doesn't it..?
At least I will have only One Office charge...That's good cause this chick is broke...

Yes I cryed and ask why me about a 100 times tonight...but the truth is right after it happened I just started laughing till I thought my gut was gona bust... I mean seriously how can one person have so much bad luck.
All wierd bad luck stuff that doesn't happen to 99% of the people in the world...As my surgeon said... I've only seen this happen maybe 3 times in the 20 plus years I've been in practice... Go Figure! And I can bet that no one else has yanked out there front tooth with Duct Tape either....
No I didn't break a mirror, haven't been bad ...just a huge run of really bad luck...

So my dear friends I just want to say this

Now on the brighter side my infection is healing finally... and looks 100% better...I can still feel one stitch behind that center red spot but the open side no longer hurts. Its clear and healing up finally. The red is gone and it no longer feels red hot to the touch....... I do believe it is on the mend..Thank God and all of your prayers.. The other good thing is I am already on antibiotics so any thing the dentist does is bound to heal up nicely...Well it should.. with me right now nothing is a given...

For Me 9:00 comes way to early so I must call it a day and bid you all Good Night!

Have a Great Tuesday!!


  1. Oh my gosh!! You poor thing. :( I feel bad that your tooth came out but at the same time it is good that you now can have the appt and take care of both teeth at once.

    I am so glad that your incision is healing well. What is the Dr. going to do about the inside stitches? That kinda still worries me. Did you or the Dr. say what the reason was that they are still not dissolved? Did I miss that from the other posts?

    Still prayin' for ya my friend.
    Take care of you. Janet W (((((HUGS)))))

  2. wow, I have to say, that you do have your share of misfortunes,talk about freak accidents, but your incision looks great, hopefully you'll be as good as new again.

  3. Sending you a giant hug!
    You still have a beautiful smile.
    I am keeping you in my prayers too Friend.


  4. Tonya, I have come to the conclusion we *may* just have to but you in a protective bubble or some sort, Good Gravy girl! I hope this streak of not so good luck ends soon, and Thanks for the duct tape warning, they say there is nothing it can't fix well now I beg to differ;/ continued prayers for you my friend!

  5. Oh that's too funny pulling out your tooth with duct tape. I'm sorry not laughing at you but with you. Hope the dentist can get it fixed.


  6. Have you thought about locking yourself in a padded room? Yikes, Girlfriend....is there no end?? Glad to see you still could pull off a smile for us.....Reminds me when I was growing up - we had this mean (and I mean MEAN) ol' rooster....you'd go around the corner of the barn and silo to the chicken coop to gather eggs and he'd be waiting and coming flying and pecking at you. Well, one day my mom had enough - and as he came at her, she hauled back the tin coffee can full of chicken feed she was carrying and was going to smack a good one - somehow, she ended up taking out her two front teeth instead. For a woman who had beautiful teeth and never a cavity or filling, it was devastating. Hope you get fixed up good and proper - incision is lookin' good! Smiles (no pun intended) & Hugs ~ Robin

  7. Good grief! You are right, if it weren't for bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck! I am gonna stay away from that duct tape! ...lol..
    Glad you are healing and the dentist should be able to fix you right up!

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  8. well I am not surprised it took off your tooth..there is the old saying that the navy uses duct tape to tape up submarines...and it holds..I hope they get you looking purty in no time with a new tooth...and so happy that your neck is looking better and healing..you are a good sport to show us these photos...and we are laughing with you not at you...;)

  9. Bless you sweet heart! Things have got to start turning around for the better now! I am believing that and praying for that for you!
    Be blessed,

  10. Tonya, Tonya! Your rewards are comin' down the road, girl, you've been payin' your dues for sure! A couple of weeks ago my husband attempted to eat a popsicle out of the chest freezer too soon and his lips froze to the popsicle. He ended up having to stick his head under the faucet to get the popsicle off. Not sure if that would be bad luck tho...LOL! Hang in there!!! ~*~Lisa

  11. Firstly, He knew you would be messing w/ the duct tape and He also knew you needed a good gut busting laugh at yourself. A merry heart doeth good like medicine. Who knows, you might have needed to laugh in order to get the dentist appt. I mean how can they deny the lady that pulled off her cap w/ duct tape...you would have gotten the appt. our of sheer curiosity.
    I am laughing with you my dear friend.

  12. That is funny but not really funny. I have had some weird things happen but you top them all. I think things have to get better for you now Tonya since you have pretty much hit bottom and no where to go now but up.
    I am finally getting back into the swing of things so maybe I will have some things to show you soon

  13. All I can say is, "Bless your heart". Some times when it rains, it pours . . . hopefully your rainy days will be coming to an end and the sun-shine is just around the corner. God bless you, Connie :)

  14. Hang in there! mon ami,

    I am certain you will have brighter days ahead :oD Praying for you.

    Hope you had a great weekend & feeling much better. Take care ok.

    Blessings & Hugs,

  15. Oh such a bummer!
    Sometimes you just gotta laugh at yourself.
    Hope you got it all fixed up by now!
    And your feeling much better and your incision is healing up nicely!
    No more duct tape for a while!
    Maybe you should contact the company and let them know what happened ~ maybe they'll send you a free roll ~ or help to pay for fixing your tooth ~ always worth a try!
    Prayers and thoughts going your way!
    Prim Blessings
