Toothless and perfect

Mario didn’t want a Replacement for his missing tooth. I’m glad. Because when I met him in Italy, he was perfect the way he was.

  1. It’s nice to see someone with a missing tooth who’s so confident about his appearance. I have a missing tooth that I’m very self conscious about. I’m dying to get it replaced but it’s not that easy.

    1. Recently, I had to have a bottom tooth removed so I could get invisalign braces. Yep, it was a bit uncomfortable to eat in a restaurant. Mario, in Italy, was so confident in his own skin, he could have cared less if an ostrich head grew out of his ear. 🙂

      1. There’s fried chicken and there’s fried chicken. When Barb and I were beating down the road in a semi we stopped at a place in the middle of a South Carolina cotton field. Best fried chicken ever.

  2. I love this. Lulu had a gap in her teeth but she got braces to close the gap. I often wonder what would have happened if we didn’t spring for the braces. I’d like to think she’d have more confidence, even empowered A gap sure didn’t hurt Lauren Hutton.
