Remember the Toooooooooth!!!

"Be quiet, please, my poor Duke. You haven't much time.

That peg tooth I put in your mouth after the tumble at Narcal--that tooth must be replaced, in a moment, I'll render you unconscious and replace that tooth." He opened his hand, stared at something in it. "An exact duplicate, its core shaped most exquisitely like a nerve. It'll escape the usual detectors, even a fast scanning. But if you bite down hard on it, the cover crushes. Then, when you expel your breath sharply, you fill the air around you with a poison gas..."

Cool remoteness spread upward from Leto's jaw, across his cheeks. The shadowy, hall narrowed to a pinpoint with Yueh's purple lips centered in it.

"Remember the tooth!" Yueh hissed. "The tooth!"

As in Dune - I have decided to replace my baby tooth with a cianide capsule. That way, in case I get into a bind, well, you know not to try and kiss me. They even put it into a little box for me after the extraction.

I'm not to get false tooth (grillz) after 2 months. Since I have a permanent tooth directly above the baby - the dentist wants to make sure it won't be dropping down only to be brutally rebuffed by a retainer.

Dentists are a bunch of assholes. If I had known I just needed to get an extraction - I would have done it before I reached 29. The dentist told my mom when I was 14 that I needed to 'be patient' and then get braces - which turns out to be a bunch of bullshit. Imagine the dentist who tried to sell cosmetic dentistry to a single mom of 2, with an income of $20,000 a year!

I must go eat mashed potatoes and practice not smiling for 2 months.

Don't be letting the toothfairy rip you off. Make a necklace out of that!

cianide capsule = very good idea.
sorry to hear about the tooth... think of it as a storage space, like the perfect spot to put a straw, cigarette, skinny cigar, or the hose-end of a hookah, all without opening your mouth.

Dentists are worse than doctors by far, and everything is about 10x more expensive than it should be. Good luck dealing with those animals.

i hate dentists....probably why I (unwisely) avoid going!! so...does the adult tooth cover the gap....I am very confused about how you could have both a baby tooth and adult tooth in the same area. I tried to download a pic of Amy Winehouse for you...with the same gap. how is St. Louis?

I'm back from St. L -
Amber took me by where you dad lives (vivavoom) and the houses look AWESOME!!!!

I currently have a ginormous gap where my baby tooth used to reside. the permanent tooth is living up in my gums - you can't really see it except on x-ray. I'm waiting for it to 'grow in'.

heavy sigh.
my life sucks right now.
at least i have cianide...

I'm sorry :(
You know, besides the imaginary fillings, that asswipe dentist also wanted to do a frenectomy on my daughter, which is $700 and the other dentist said was unnecessary!
