One spring, my mother made the decision to have all her top teeth pulled and get fitted for a top denture.
Her birthday is in June. I found this card: on the front, 'Hey, it's your birthday! Show off them pearly whites.' On the inside, 'Heck, take 'em out, pass 'em around!'
I must have agonized in the store for several minutes - should I? Shouldn't I? I finally bought the card. I figured either she'd laugh or write my eulogy; there wasn't much ground in between.
Fortunately for me, she laughed. She did not, however, 'take 'em out and pass 'em around.'
