I think I know all she’ll want for Christmas


It had been hanging on by a thread for a week, she too chicken to let anyone remove it and Mama too squeamish to really press the issue. Of late, it had begun sticking out at odd angles, giving the impression that the child should be appearing shoeless, wearing overalls, with a straw sticking out of the corner of her mouth.
But today we are pleased to announce its departure, thanks to a lunchtime hotdog. Whereabouts of tooth are unknown, which isn’t all bad as it saves the Tooth Fairy a trip (the dumb broad is clean out of cash right now, anyway).

“What? Grimace painfully to give the full effect of the hole in my face? Sure!”
Jack-o-lantern grin just in time for Halloween.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
