No Tooth Fairy

No tooth fairy coin,
When your wisdom teeth came out …
Just a swollen jaw
Two weeks of baby food and juice
And a picture for Facebook!

Napoleon and Chtulu - Franz's wisdom teeth

Napoleon and Chtulu – Franz’s wisdom teeth (Couldn’t we talk about this first!?!)

Wisdom of Moby Dick

James’ eyes fixed upon the boats out in the harbour willing his mind to leave the room.

“How’s it going laddy?” asked the dentist.

A pro forma question since James couldn’t say a word with the doctor’s huge fingers in his mouth.

“Ah … yes! Just another … second! Et Voila!”

The dentist held the wisdom tooth triumphantly in the air! Then put in stitches to close the hole where the missing tooth had once been.

“Well, it’s all yours!”

“I think I’ll call it Moby Dick.” James mumbled.

The jolly dentist laughed … “See you next week for the other one!”
