An apple a day keeps the doctor away,
At least, so they say.
I have eaten an apple a day for as long as I can remember,
And that will not change, even tho~~~
Last week was another busy one until a couple of days were rudely interrupted by a simple bite into a most delectable, juicy apple.
I heard a quiet snap, like that of a thin rubber band and something against my tongue and between my two front teeth.
Being religious about flossing, immediately thinking I had a piece of peel between my choppers, I slid a piece of floss between them. OR did I?
It did not feel just right, so after a look in my looking glass, I see the floss was actually lodged in a thin crack from the bottom of my tooth, nearly to the gum. Looking closer still, there was a chip and the entire section could be moved back and forth with my tongue...talk about irritating.
A trip to my dentist revealed an even greater problem. Not only one tooth, but two, were chipped, needing the grind, file, fill, file, floss and polishing. Finally, I got my smile back after a couple of soup and straw days.
One regret~~~all of this happened on the day my brother got a trophy buck with his bow and arrow. I made steaks and mushrooms for him to celebrate. He, my son and Mom said they were the best eye of rib steaks they had ever had. Of course, I would not know, as I wasn't taking any chances eating steak yet too.
Moral of this story~
Beware the bite you take~
Always take good care of your teeth, as they are the only God-given set you will have and always,
