The Amish…in their own Words

I read this in The Budget yesterday and laughed out loud. I had a great aunt who used to leave her dentures lying around. Used to mortify me to have to make her bed up when she visited us…often I’d pull back the sheets and there would be her forgotten choppers, sneering up at me!

A scribe from Chaouteau, Oklahoma…

“There was this woman that went to church and forgot to put her teeth in her mouth. She didn’t think she needed them, but her girls said yes you do. Then she happened to think she couldn’t eat pickles if she didn’t have them. At least they went after them. Better be careful as it could happen to me sometime.”

Do you have any relatives like this woman, or like my great aunt? Do tell!
