In 6th grade I got braces.
In 7th grade, I replaced glasses with contacts and have worn them ever since.
In 8th grade, I got my braces removed.
The year after I graduated, I got my 4 wisdom teeth pulled. Yes, that makes 8 permanent teeth removed from my head.
In 2001 I was diagnosed with PCOS.
In 2004, two days after Christmas, I had surgery to remove parts of my ovaries so I could get pregnant. Apparently, it worked like a charm.
In 2006 I removed Punky from my body.
In 2007 I booted Chicken.
In 2008 I evicted Cupcake.
Now, it appears in 2009, possibly even before the end of this year if I have my way, I (well, the doctor) will be removing my gallbladder. My ultrasound revealed stones therefore the perfect explanation to my intense heartburn and those intense attacks I've been having.
Talk about getting old. Apparently I know now what my next milestone in life is: Getting things removed or replaced.
