Teeth revisited

I did a post on this shortly after I started my blog, complete with a poem (smile here).
With so many adverts on TV at the moment about toothpastes and mouthwashes, I can’t help but notice other people’s gnashers!
My favourite is a young girl playing with a sock puppet on the train and a teenager plays along by pulling faces and crossing her eyes whilst similarly snapping her unsocked hand .
The rub is the possible love interest alongside her who is watching the exchange.

Personally, bad teeth are one of the biggest turnoffs for me, but taking it to the other extreme, a mouthful of gleaming white pearlies can also be a little unnerving!

I have seen the actor Danny Glover in a multitude of roles, from The Colour Purple to the Lethal Weapon franchise, Predator 2 and 2012, but it was his role in Shooter that I found most off-putting as he seemed to be sporting the most ill-fitting pair of dentures one could imagine!
Since then, I have noticed it with several of our movie stars of ‘senior years’ and keep expecting their teeth to fly across the screen like some kind of orbital smile in ‘outer face’.

My more recent observations are just how large teeth are these days.
They are indeed perfect, and the subsequent smile quite dazzling, but for some unknown reason, Little Red Riding Hood keeps coming to mind.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. There are definitely some big chompers out there these days – and not just on the old actors. The young ladies have them, too, in the form of some giant veneers.
