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.
