The kitchen ain't just for eatin' any more

The backwoods got a little closer today. Just when I think that we live in an advancing society somebody comes along and blows up that theory. This is a true story folks. I can't make crap like this up.

Today, one of our regular drivers comes in. (Oh, did I mention he lives in Alabama. That may explain this.) It's been about a week or so since we've seen him. We notice and mention that he has a new tooth. He gap in his smile is gone. We knew he had been having dental work done and was looking forward to his new tooth but it was still supposed to be a while before the work was completed. So, we congratulate him on his appearance. Then he admits that it is a temporary tooth. He had a friend who knew this guy that makes teeth. He went to the man's house. The man took him to the kitchen, sat him down, made an impression and made him a tooth right there in his house. Black market tooth fairy. Who knew?!
