about this blog
Why chai at six? Because growing up, my family and I would have chai every evening. Those moments of my youth are among my most favorite memories.

Who am I? A twentysomething working fulltime in Knoxville, Tenn.

    chai at six
    Turns out one side of my jaw got infected after I got my wisdom teeth removed so for a couple of days I held my swollen face in pain as I tried to deal with the terrible feeling of a jawache. Thankfully people recognized that throbbing feeling as an infection and urged me to visit my doctor. The oral surgeon said it was an infection and made me undergo more pain as he cleaned it up. It's all good now.

    Also, embarrasingly enough, I am about to get braces to correct an overbite. It doesn't affect my mouth that much but as we're all our deepest critics, I wish to get it corrected. Since I can finally afford it and not worry about my folks getting drained financially, I'll be a young adult with braces in two weeks. How damn embarrassing will that be! But if you're bound to taunt, know that I'd rather endure public embarrasement for two years than a lifetime's worth of private embarrasement. (Spelling note: Having copy edited, I should know the real spelling of embarrasement (i.e. one or two Ss), but am too lazy to check it up, so please deal with typos and sics.)

    So anyway, prior to getting braces I got spacers — rubber bands inserted between your molar teeth to move them some to let the braces have enough space. And damn are they painful. I've been on such a good diet since I got them as I can hardly eat. My teeth have become really sensitive with the spacers. A small spacer can inflict so much pain! Ouch. Also getting one more tooth removed for the braces. Sometimes I wonder if it's all worth it. But having a better smile in the end will be so worth it. Better hush that doubt. (ha! what a cool phrase!)

    OK, "chai at six" isn't a dental drama blog, although I think it well may become one. Bare/bear with me.

    One of my oldest friends from Z. is in town and it's been great hanging out with her. We've known each other since back in the day when we were in nursery school together. Something about old friends, you just connect more. Wednesday we drove around and all as I rushed from orthodonist to dentist to bank to etc.

    Today was much nicer though. After visiting some stores, I went to drop a friend off at the airport than we drove to Oak Ridge. Wasn't much to look at there, so upon returning to Knoxville we went to WalMart, got a blanket and some soda (or pop, which she calls it!), and went down to Cherokee to sit by the lake. It was so peaceful and calm sitting there, watching owners and dogs and the little bugs and hearing boats sail down Loudon. Nothing but a most pleasant evening with nonstop chatter.

    Then visited the newly opened Agave/Azul grill in Western Plaza. It's really good with great service. Totally recommend it. Awesome food with awesome prices to match. And they have live music too with a tequila bar to cap it off. So if you're ever by the Fresh Market and have a hankering for Mexican, be sure to try it out. Save some space for flan too, it's totally worth it. If you're wondering, I'm not affiliated with the restaurant. I just like to promote good service whenever I see it, as it so so hard to find. (e.g. CVS in Western Plaza, I won't easily go there anymore)

    The post has gotten long enough without anyone really knowing anything. Hope you're still reading. Furthermore, hope you're still in contact with your old friends. The talk and laughter and hanging out is so worth it.
