The 7-year-old hole in my tooth was not a secret.

How would it cost me 7 years to fix it? It's a long long story.


Seven years ago, there was a small black point on one of my teeth surface. I told my family at once as if it's an interesting discovery. Having a decaying tooth was regarded as a childish thing for them, "You are such a fan of sweets," they said in a laugh, "brush your teeth carefully. " 

Day after day, year after year, the hole has become larger. After three years, "I could feel it a deeper hole with my tone," I told my sister in a little worry, "but there is no pain." "Maybe you should fix it now, let me tell farther." She replied with a casual air. Undoubtedly, we both forgot it quickly.

Then another three years have gone, eating became kind of annoying because of such a black big hole. At the same time, I got a habit that I can't stop licking that hole whenever I felt nervous. It seemed like a part of my body.


Now it's the seventh year of my hole, I finally made up my mind to fix it this week. Behind the fear, there is nothing but the duty to do the right thing instead of escaping.

    @5plus6 - I love how patient you are with these things. I too am curious about such things and don't rush out to 'repair' them.

      @brianball Thank you for your interesting point. But it's not patience but weakness that makes me not rush to repair them.

      I think myself like a patient who is afraid of seeing the doctors, because it's my fault to 'damage' them. The fear of that exceeds the inconvenience of tolerance.

      But now, I cheered me up to 'repair' the long years of problems. It's never late for a real reparation.

      @lucjah yeah, 7-year is a quite long relationship. It sounds like the end of an era. :-D
