the joys of second grade
Having wiggly teeth to play with in the middle of class,
Discussing and comparing wiggly teeth with friends,
Getting told, "Hey, that's a nice new hole in your head you have there!"
Relaying the story about how said new hole in the head was produced,
Getting to completely gross out your relatives as you bite into something while your loosest tooth hangs on, incomprehensibly, by a thread-like bit of gum tissue,
Having to find new ways to say words you previously had no trouble with,
Having to find new ways to eat food you previously had no trouble with,
Having an excuse to spray/spit food at the dinner table,
Having your piggy bank grow $2 fatter.
