TEETH COMING AND TEETH GOING-ONE BIG PARTY...OR NOT....

Mae lost a third tooth. It's on the bottom, just left of center. She said that there's a big wall chart in her class room where they get to list their names (and teeth) when they lose a tooth. Wow. That is really big news there. I'm approaching the age when my peers are also beginning to lose teeth. The same teeth that pushed out those adorable baby teeth while we were in kindergarten are now trying their darndest to say their goodbyes. We're trying hard to keep that from happening, but sometimes circumstances dictate that they make an exit. Sometimes it's a partial exit. Sometimes only part of the tooth leaves and we hide it behind a "cap", but it's still mostly gone. It's like a house that blew away in a tornado and the only thing left behind is the basement and maybe part of the chimney. Obviously there used to be a house there but...eh......

So I guess I have a chart for that very same thing only it's not on a wall and I don't get a party for it. I keep that chart at a dentist office, in a drawer, and I pay money every time it comes out. And there is definitely no party...
