Grandma's Teeth

Document
Cover Image

When the nurse asked if you had dentures, half your face frowned.


I squeezed your hand and told her that you still had all of your teeth--except for two.


You lost those at seven, when untied shoes took your balance and your two front teeth.


But your father, a dentist, saved your smile.


The nurse nodded when I finished explaining.


You squeezed my hand. Tears rolled down your cheeks and mine.


Yes, I remembered.


That was our last conversation.
