PostPosted: 02/06/03 - 09:27    Post subject: The ceremony
Colin is my eleven year old son who has a flair for the dramatic--(which I will deny vehemently that he gets from me). On Tuesday he decided
to go through a "teeth pulling ceremony" which would have made a native
American tribe proud. He spent a half hour hopping around and a little
moaning thrown in about this tooth "dangling by a thread". I told him
to grab, twist, and pull. Then he kept chanting the directions "grab,
twist, and pull" as he hopped about. Every once in awhile, double
checking with me that it wasn't "twist, grab, and pull" the tooth, instead. He
finally capped off the ceremony with the actual "pulling of the tooth"
and spitting quantitative amounts of "strep" infected blood all over the
sink and outlying areas.

Makes me tear up with pride.

No, but by the end of it I wanted to be smoking a "peace pipe". What was in those things, anyway?

i hope to heck you didn't forget to "tooth fairy" him -- or is he too old for this ritual???

i have witnessed this "ceremony" involving much angst and tears and then blessed relief twice in the past few months with my little girl. Each time she puts that tooth under her pillow with great expectation--- each time she comes to me in the morning: YOU FORGOT AGAIN MOM.

Embarassed I did forget. (And he took great pains to remind me!) So, when I went to get him a milkshake from McD for his throat today I told him I'd run into the tooth fairy inside and handed him a dollar. He got a chuckle out of that. You never know when they want you to play and when they don't. I guess if money is involved--it's a safe bet they want to "believe". Very Happy

My brother and I would box our teeth out. We would put on our winter gloves, and start swinging. One time I had a loose one, and we were just getting started. I went to throw my first punch, and - you know those little metal clasps they used to put on winter gloves? - well, the clasp caught my tooth on the forward motion and yanked the sucker right out! I guess I saved face. Wink
