It's time to break my silence (No, this is not regarding anything political - not that I'm complaining political stuff)

This has been troubling me for some time.

There's nothing worse than looking in the mirror three quarters of the way through your day and seeing some huge shredded piece of puke-green nastiness lodged between your two front teeth.

You think, "For the love of all that is holy, how long has THAT been there?!"


You begin recounting the events of your day - all the people you've had face-to-face conversations with.

Why did they stay silent? Surely they saw it. You think, "Good grief, if I'd sat any closer to them they could have taken a bite of it!"

How could they let me just keep on about my day without telling me that there's an entire crop of romaine lettuce protruding from my face?

People.....

Please.....

Friends don't let friends walk around with food in their teeth.

So the next time you seem some poor, clueless person walking around with a vegetable garden sprouting from their two front teeth, do the right thing and tell them about it.

Hilarious and so true. That irritates me when people don't tell you. I am always the first one to tell people there is something in their teeth and I've even been known to touch a stranger just to pick the large fuzz off of their shirt. Common people, help your fellow ragamuffin already!!!

Brandi and Kristi - welcome to my blog; so good to hear from you! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who finds it irritating to have vegetation protruding from my mouth and have no one tell me about it! :)

As a display of friendship I will tell you there is something in your teeth even when there's not so that you know I am not one of those people silently laughing behind your back.

I agree that you should tell your friends about such vegetation. But I will say it's awkward when you are at a table with people you don't know very well and someone points out the offending object in front of everyone. In that situation, you can't win.
