A discourse on the hole in my head.

I've been walking around with this front tooth out. It is an embarrassment when I try to smile. It messes up my speech so I sound like a derelict in a Dickens novel, pronouncing, "F", and, "V", as if they were, "W". Someone forced me to ask for olives at the grocery store, and it was the weirdest sounding word that ever issued from my lips.

I haven't been worried. I just wanted to find out a few things, first. Like, if I super-glued my cap back in, would a dentist be able to remove it later? Or, how toxic is superglue? I recently discovered that it would be OK to use superglue - especially if I buy some medical grade superglue. So, I decided I would wait until I bought some, before I replaced the cap.

During this interim, I was getting my recycleables together. I was collecting useless plastic bottles off a shelf, and I believe I might have grabbed the plastic bottle top that my tooth was resting in. I can't believe it. It is apparently gone forever, unless it fell on the floor somewhere, or such. How weird is that? To get a new one put in will cost me an impossible amount of money. I am condemned to live in a Dickens novel for the rest of my life.

I am so shocked that I am just going to watch another Adam Sandler movie.

Oh man that sucks. I knew a girl who had a missing front tooth, sine she was poor she decided to just own it, and go all punk rock. Someone even asked her if she knocked her tooth out on purpose because it fit her look so well.

Yeah - it's like a major mistake in my life, and what's worse is that it happened so casually. I could just kick myself. But if I did, then more teeth would come out.

I am noticing things, like, when I swoosh water now, I accidentally spit like a camel. Or, a long piece of cilantro just stays sticking out, no matter how I try to pull it in an eat it, cuz it is in the tooth hole.

Good for your friend. I respect that...

I don't like having to compromise due to poverty/class. I have too much pride in my teeth and I smile and laugh a lot. So many bad things have happened in my life, I would just like a chance to move ahead. Missing a front tooth makes me look like another one of the unwashed masses, instead of a triple-major college graduate. just another thing to make me feel stuck and going nowhere. But of course, many people have it worse, so.

Have you looked into the possibility of molding your own cap out of acrylic resin or something? Super cheap and maybe worth a try at least as a temporary replacement. Not sure the toxicity of that stuff being in your mouth though, but probably something similar you could use?

Thanks. I was wondering if there was something like that. But I couldn't do toxic. One day, I would like my two front teeth to be remade to look kinda buck. But, as far as my missing tooth? I found it! Yay!\

Since my brain is so buggered right now, I will mention it in a post, where you can read. Take care. - btw - your post about WILL(?) will be inspiring a future post, probably.
