Say what? Hey…stop that!
I was picking up Darling from school the other day, and because I was early and had nothing better to do, I climbed from the cab and began picking up the loose change that had fallen onto and beneath the mat under my feet. And you know what I found? The gold cap from my tooth.
A few years back I had a dentist who did a root canal and then a gold overlay on one of my molars. They offered silver or gold, but convinced me that the price of the gold would be well worth it, as it would hold up and not need replacing.
I guess they didn’t bank on my eating caramel. I love caramel, don’t you? Smothered in chocolate…mmmm… And one day I was eating such a delicious piece, when I felt this little suction from the back of my mouth. And then, my caramel became somewhat difficult to chew… I spit it out to find a gold tooth!
So much for gold lasting.
I wonder how much the gold is worth? Can you sell a gold tooth? I wonder if I were to bring it into one of those places that deals with coins and precious metals, if they’d think I stole it out of a dead person’s mouth?
I wonder if ebay would let me sell it there? I could probably make up some really cool story, don’t you think? Perhaps a fight between a couple of ruffians over a woman…one of them dies; it’s her true love, and the only thing she kept of him was the gold tooth, which she wore as a necklace until her dying day…
Okay, help me out with this story. I need something clever if I’m going to make enough money to by a new pair of boots. I need something that rivals the old Ghost in a Jar… Come on, y’all. Inspire me!
