Megan is particularly attached to her teeth, and has been cultivating a couple of wobbly ones for some months now – strategic chewing and tooth brushing mean that a bit like a Weeble, they wobble but they dont fall out. At least not until last night.
After the parade we were wandering the village making the most of the free wine and shortbread when Megan spotted the Candy Floss stall, and managed to twist Grandad’s arm for a bag. Unfortunately for Megan the second mouthful grabbed hold of one of the wobblies and managed to turn it right round - ‘I can feel the smooth bit from round the front at the back with tongue!’ to quote Megan. Although she did say it with a bit of a lisp and one or two tears, which is little harder to convey using the written word.
Unfortunately for Mum and Dad the tooth was still wedged between its neighbours and not for falling out of its own accord – and Megan was all for turning it round and shoving it back in. However as a life of soup through a straw loomed, a judicious flick of the toothbrush (‘I promise I wont go near the wobbly one’ – guess she’ll not fall for that again) saw said tooth fly across the room.
The Tooth Fairy left five pounds under the pillow last night (and in the middle of a credit crunch too), but this time it did at least manage to make off with the tooth – I think it’s got designs on the other wobbly one though.
As promised here’s the predictions for this weekend :
Draws: Wolves, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday, Hartlepool, Tranmere, Walsall, Aldershot, Cheltenham, Partick Thistle, Queen of the South
Homes: Arsenal, Aston Villa, Newcastle, Norwich, Celtic
Aways: Liverpool (might regret that one), Chelsea, Man Utd, West Brom, Rangers

Only time will tell…
