Small Talk #31


Why would I have two top and two bottom teeth if I wasn't meant to bite? I bite plastic toys and that seems to be OK with the Olds. They laugh and say to people "Everything goes straight into his mouth!"

They made such a fuss as every one of my four teeth came through. And I can tell you they hurt too! The Olds seemed so proud.

Why oh why then, when I bite new things these days, like people's fingers, thumbs, cheeks, arms do they say "No biting! Your teeth hurt people."?

I know... they hurt me too!

    Thanks, Drew. I like a drabble with a bit of bite :-)
