For P...with much affection

He keeps his dentures spotlessly clean,
shining white, devoid of dullness
or even the odd coffee stain.

Lacking root or fixative, he risks
their temporary nature and smiles and whistles,
so proud of his perfect teeth.

They glow in the candlelight
and outshine snow in winter.
On New Year's Eve at a party

he drank and drank, far too much
and overate then danced a wild jig -
against his better judgement.

Then he needed some air so staggered outside
and the cold out there
impacted his stomach

and made him throw up.
Well, mortified, he snuck away home,
but halfway there - shock horror -

he realised his teeth were missing.
So his long-suffering wife
drove him back to the spot,

where he found his pearly whites
all shiny and bright
in the centre of a dollop of vomit! ;))


  1. could be almost comical if it weren't so pathetic! Okay...I admit that I was laughing at the end. Served him right :)
    Loved this! Brilliantly written by one of the most talented writers that I have the pleasure to know!
    Thank you also for being such a wonderful friend~

    Great Big Hugs and Much Love~

  2. Haha...yes, a little vain I guess...but he is such a nice guy that I really felt for him!

    Oh you are so kind,dearest truly means so much to know that you enjoy my scribblings! 😀😀

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    All my love and hugs xoxo

  3. Ouch. That poor man - and don't most of us have something we are a little vain about?
    I would be giving those teeth a good scrubbing though. A very good scrubbing.

    1. Oh absolutely! I don't believe any of us escape a touch of vanity! 😉
      Haha...yes, and probably a good soaking in disinfectant too!! Lol

  4. Poor guy, I truly feel sorry that such a thing like that happened to him.

    Years ago I remember when my wife and I were on a City Bus while it was raining outside, then suddenly we heard a clunk, then noticed a man reaching down to pick up his teeth out of the tracked in mud.

    1. Yes, must have been really embarrassing...I did so feel for him.
      But, luckily, he is the kind of guy who doesn't take himself too seriously.
      Had it been me, I probably would have been mortified!

      Many thanks, Lon. ☺☺

  5. Was I wrong to enjoy these words!!!

    1. Wrong? Absolutely not, Jan!

  7. Que mala suerte tuvo este pobre hombre, lo normal es perder la cartera, las llaves, el reloj, la novia, etc......pero perder la dentadura...Yo si fuera la sufrida esposa, le digo: o encuentras los dientes, o vas a comer todos los días sopas. Así que tu mismo decides.
    Un abrazo.
