Aunty Toothache

Aunty ToothacheAunty Toothache

Many books and writings were used as wrapping papers for meat and starch, but some were saved. Sometimes entire books were saved, while sometimes only a few leaves were saved.

The son of some shop-owners was responsible for saving many writings. This story came from one of the writings he saved. It had been written by a student who died, about a month ago. He suffered from a terrible toothache.

Following is his story.

Observations

Toothaches are just awful, this is coming from a person who has had four root-canals. One day, I’m going to get all ceramic teeth so I don’t have this problem…a person can dream.

Themes

Something was saved that otherwise would have been lost. Those things can be some of the best things.

Overall

Makes you think a little about throwing out your newspapers.

Weigh In

Are toothaches the worst?

Do you think anyone ever reads the stuff you throw out?
