An Apple A Day

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,

Oh my goodness!

Thanks for the reminder I need to make an appointment to have my teeth cleaned. Sorry that happened to you.

What a bummer! And just before a delicious steak dinner, too.

I hate when things like that happen! Glad you were able to get the choppers fixed so you can continue with your 'apple a day'!

Sorry that happened. That streak sounded good.

Dentists are a lost cause for me now-a-days. My teeth are pitiful and not worth a visit. One day I'll get all new, store bought ones. Then watch your fingers!

Muffy's Marks said...

Darn it. What an unlucky chain of events. Glad you and your choppers are back to normal.

Ahhhh, I have a soft spot for Apple eaters. I love apples from bitter green until grisp and ripe. I do not like the mushy soft one though.
Lady I am sorry to hear about the teeth. that is a bummer.

But back to normal, I am sure Bill did not complain. The steaks sure sounded good!!!!!
Sending love from down here.

I'm amazed you weren't writhing in pain with chips like that! Glad they were able to fix you up.
