for Ragtag Daily Prompt which today is hosted by Christine and the given word is Misplaced.
I thought I’d revisit a story I wrote about four years ago, but hardly anybody read! So, here goes –
Old Bob loved waking up and seeing his false teeth smiling at him from their glass of water beside his bed.
‘Good morning teeth’ he’d say.
‘Blob blob blob Bob’ they’d splutter back.
But this morning they weren’t there. ‘Oh dear’ said Bob. ‘I can’t have misplaced them. Where can they be?’
Bob’s teeth were sometimes a bit mischievous. They liked playing hide ‘n seek. They hid in his trousers once and when he put his hand in his pocket they bit him! Bob got his own back by making them chew on something very hard that lunchtime.
Once they jumped out of his mouth when he yawned, landed on his plate and started nibbling his piece of chocolate cake.
Bob needed to find them because he was going to see his friend Mabel that morning and he was worried he would scare her with his toothless grin. It was not a pretty sight. It frightened the postman once!
‘Ah, found you!’ he chuckled. His naughty teeth had hidden inside his packet of breakfast cereal, and they fell into his bowl when he tipped it up.
They soon stopped smiling when he poured milk all over them!
Just another fun filled day for Old Bob and his naughty teeth!
