Sans Teeth . . . Sans Everything

I went to the dentist yesterday to replace a filling that had fallen out. They replaced it and told me I didn't have to come back till spring. That sounded so nice. So nice.

So today I was eating a Tootsie Roll when half-way through it I realized it had ripped my lonely crown out - yeah, the one I got in June. I guess the re-crowning ceremonies will have to wait till Monday since all my dentists are at seminars today. I hope they learn how to make better cement.

Somewhere, in all her enameled splendor, the Tooth Fairy laughs uncontrollably, squirting milk out of her nose.

Oh my, is there an epidemic of tooth loss going on here? LOL

I suffered through an extraction recently as well. I forgot to put it under my pillow though...

You deserve something from the Tooth Fairy now.
You'll have to ask your wife to put one of those dollar coins under your pillow.

I was the victim of Poppycock. Tell me there is not a joke in there somewhere. New crown, no cash, bloodshot left eye.
