1. Shoes on the telephone wires is a signal that crack is available for purchase.
It never occurred to me that 'shoefiti' was anything other than a weird prank. The Straight Dope says that there are several possible reasons for this increasingly common sight, as does Snopes. I like to believe that it is something that graduating seniors do, but whatever the reason, I wish that people would just stick to trees. You know, like the shoe tree on Washington Avenue.2. Teeth will shift if one tooth is cracked.
I mentioned (probably more than once) (and after someone asked about the grimace on my face), that my front tooth felt loose again. I also noticed that there is a larger space between my left canine and lateral incisor. The immediate question was "is the tooth cracked? Teeth will shift when there's a cracked tooth." It makes sense to me that a cracked tooth would move, allowing the others to move as well, and tooth mobility is occasionally listed as a symptom of a cracked tooth. My dentist is certain that there is a small crack in the structure of the root that my crown is on. Evidence is mounting that I am headed for a dental implant. Please, please, please hold on until January when I can enroll in the health care savings plan!
I love Scrabble.
