A-Z Challenge Day 20


It’s sometimes difficult to know if Rosey is joking, or actually believes something which to us seems unlikely. To laugh or not to laugh, that is the dilemma!

I’m sure she believed in the tooth fairy when she was little, why not, most children do – I did quite well getting six pence every time a tooth dropped out! But eventually, we have a Father Christmas moment and accept that it was all just pretend.

I mention this because she told us her father is getting rid of his ill-fitting false teeth and splashing out on expensive dental implants. She suggested that instead of throwing the falsies away, he should leave them on his bedside table because they could be worth quite a bit in fairyland, especially if the Fairy Grandmother was in need of dentures.

The thing is, she said it with a really serious look on her face. Nobody said anything for a moment, no-one wanted to be the first to speak for fear of saying the wrong thing! Instead, I tried quickly changing the subject and jokingly asked if they had heard about Giovanni from the Italian restaurant.

“No, what?“ asked Nicki

“He pasta way!” I said

“No he didn’t’” Rosey called out over the laughter, “I  saw him this morning”

Nobody said anything for a moment….!

    ‘He pasta way!’ 😀 Also, I don’t mind leaving few teeth near my bedside table. I could use the money. (Now, where do I get those teeth from?) Good fun, Keith

      Easy – just look out for an elderly person asleep on a park bench with his/her mouth open and bingo! Cheers Varad.

    You are a friend, indeed, Keith.
    I would have decoded ‘he pasta way’ the exact same way. 🙂
    Rosey is a darling.
    Great story, Keith.

    Tears rolling down my cheeks–no, I’m not just saying this coz tears is a T word and I want to be clever about commenting today–no, I really mean it. Fairyland ventures…I mean dentures–OMG! HA! HA!
    Rosey, please never change–always be like this.
    T is for Tales of Tailors

      Oh my goodness, I wasn’t expecting such a positive reaction to my tale as this! Rosey, I promise you will never change. Thank you so so much.

    Oh that Rosey. You want her at every party, isn’t that the truth?

    Hi Keith – Rosey is certainly a treasure of a friend … and oh yes – twisted teeth tales … good if you turn Rosey into a book!! Cheers Hilary


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 23, 2018 / 16:39

      Funny you should mention the book!I am determined to do so. Thanks Hilary.

    What do you mean a Father Christmas moment, I don’t understand…


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 23, 2018 / 18:41

      That obviously didn’t work! I was refering to the fact that kids find out that Father Christmas does not actually exist in the same way tooth fairies don’t!

        What do you mean Father Christmas doesn’t actually exist? This is getting silly now 😉

    Ha ha ha. To be fair to Rosey, that joke can go either way when spoken, because of the accent and delivery.

    I think Rosey’s father should take his chances with the tooth fairy. You never know! 😉
