In That Spinach In Your Teeth?

You know you’ve lost your charm when you leave the house with a mouth draped in greenery. images-1  I’m a pretty well-coiffed girl.  I am, spending quite a bit of time shampooing and perfuming as if I were Marie Antoinette.

But it seems, I’ve too lost my head.

My friend, Tony the grocer, gave me a colossal container of grilled spinach I happily took home and devoured.  It was like old Italian times the way I warmed it up in a little salt and extra virgin olive oil.  Takes so little to float my boat, and apparently, also my spinach.

I brushed my teeth before bed, and again in the morning.

So why was there a wad of it gouged in my front tooth like slimy seaweed. (Did I just say that?)

I see my ex who lives down the street, first time in a year, and when I stop to say, so how are you…he says, “You’ve got something really ugly stuck in your tooth..ooh,” then walks away.

Have you ever thought, wow…when I left him, I sure dodged a bullet?  I did, when I ran back upstairs to floss with a jumper cable. images

  4. Ok, it’s official, I’m very close to the edge. My immediate response to reading “You’ve got something really ugly stuck in your tooth..ooh,” then walks away, was “you have something ugly on your face, oh, it’s just your face.” While you went to floss, I would be pulling this guys hair. I think I need help!
    The spinach sounds delicious!

    Susannah, why is it that when somethings is adhered to a tooth, it’s a bad hair day, etc. you see an old flame that you haven’t seen in a long time? Sure, we probably don’t want him back, but at the same time I know I want him to want me back. Or at least suffer a little pang of regret.
    My big English teeth are filled with nooks and crannies, so I have a tiny mirror in a pocket of my purse to constantly check them.
