Is a new incisor.
Thursday is basketball night.
I'm still on the injured reserve list,
so I stayed home with the kids.
2 hours later I got a phone call.
It's Steve.
An elbow to the mouth and one less tooth later,
I make a phone call to our neighborhood dentist.
That ought to be a pretty bill
for someone who has NO dental insurance.
(note to self: buy mouthgards)
The GOOD news?
Now he REALLY looks like he's from NH!

just have him wear the pediatric mask, no one will notice.
Poor Steve, OUCH!

Laughing at the mask comment! Not funny to be laughing about that. Poor Steve is right. Soup for you. Sorry about THAT bill.

Bro. Orton, you can play Hockey now, you have all the teeth you need for that.

Yikes. You know it's a depressing day when looking like you're from New Hampshire is the highlight.

Now we know the truth, your whole family has been going through initiations this year- just to be named a true New Hampshirian. Well- you just barely made it, and with 13 days left till the new year.
Sorry about the tooth.

Oh, Steve, I know your pain!! So sorry about the tooth. Guess you'll be fitted for a flipper. I'd go for an implant, but dear nephew, that is extremely expensive--I know that for a fact. I could have a new car with what it cost for my three implants--actually a three-tooth bridge on two implants, but I wouldn't have done it any other way. As Becky said--need a mouth guard. It's like closing the barn door after the horse got out. Hope you feel better. Aunt Shirley
