The Search for the Missing Teeth


"Are my teeth over there?" asked the Mama, as she slowly shuffled towards the kitchen.

Hence, began an all-day search for the Mama's dentures.

We went through her clothes pockets, looked behind and under things, moved things from here to there in her bedroom and bathroom, the kitchen, the hallway, and the living room. Several times.

The fortunate thing was that the Mama had not gone outside into her garden that morning.

The plus side to the Mama misplacing her dentures was that she found her cute, green hand towels and she reorganized her bathroom. I also think she was mentally stimulated by the challenge. I thought I could see her brain cells tightening as she recalled more of her path between the kitchen and her bedroom.

So, where did the Mama finally find her dentures?

Precisely where she put them. In her vest pocket, which was on her bedroom closet floor. The one piece of clothing she normally wears that we had not thought to look through. Oh well.

I'm actually grateful that the dentures went missing. I discovered we could all keep our sense of humor and be all low-key about it all. That hasn't always been the case. Also, the Mama has been a lot more in the moment since then. And, she was able to smile big for the camera on Thanksgiving Day!

    1. Me, too. I really didn't want her to drink Ensure until new dentures came in. That stuff tastes awful and so full of chemicals.

  3. I have glasses all over the house, including on my head, and I still misplace them. I can empathise. Glad all turned out well, and reorganised!

    1. Keys are my problem. They have a way of walking away.

  4. Cute story! I find I'm misplacing things more as I get older, and it really does help if you can have a sense of humor about it all.

  6. That would give the whole family a warm feeling, finding what was lost. I am glad they turned up.
    It's 4:30 in the morning now, I woke up a bit ago and now my knee pillow is missing. I woke Mrs. Jim up and neither of us can find it. We even turned the light on. I don't sleep.walk so the boogeyman must have taken it. Not a warm feeling.
    We moved in August and Mrs. Still hasn't found two pairs of shoes.
    I also lost my wedding ring and class ring.

    1. I did call out to the boogeyman and demanded that he bring the dentures back. hahaha. Hope you can find your rings and the Mrs.'s shoes. No doubt they'll show up when you least expect to.

  8. At least she didn't leave her dentures on the counter at the checkout line. I've heard of that happening before. Cute story.

    1. Ha! Thank goodness for that not happening.

    2. Oh, oh! This made me laugh so hard. Most of my teeth have broken from illness and I wear something called a 'flipper' to fill in until such time my body is stable enough to attempt implants.

      I am forever loosing my flipper because you can't eat with it in.

      My poor husband recently had to watch a total melt down from me as I struggled to talk myself into going to a meeting without teeth.

      Let's just say I didn't smile very much that night! ha!

      Thanks for this cute and heart warming link!

      XOXO
