Do I Have Anything In My Teeth?

Look closely and answer honestly please.

Okay, really this picture was taken when Janette and I were in Italy (look at the date on the's been 3 years *sigh*) and she was teasing me that I would always smile with my mouth closed so I showed her some teeth. There is a better picture of me in front of the Vatican. Don't worry.
Seriously though, if I ask you if there is something in my teeth, would you please answer me honestly? I ate this huge piece of chocolate cake tonight (yummy!) and after I was done, I asked a trusted friend if I had any food in my teeth. She glanced at me and quickly said, "Nope, you're good." Really? Did you really look? Cause when I got home tonight and flossed, guess what I found in my FRONT teeth? Chocolate cake! And nobody said anything all night long. I smiled all night long at people and nobody said anything!
If you ask me if there is anything in your teeth, I will actually look at your teeth and I will answer you honestly. In fact, this evening, I spotted a small piece of broccoli in my friend's teeth after she asked me, and I pointed it out. I only saw it because I REALLY looked. A glance won't do it.
So please, if I trust you enough to ask you if there is anything in my teeth, please look and answer honestly. It would really mean a lot to me. Thank you and good night.

rhia, I would be happy to let you know if something is in your teeth. It's difficult to tell from the picture but if you want to drive the 9 hours up here I'll take a look.

Cute picture, really :)

I'm with you on the showing teeth thing in pictures. I keep my mouth shut. I always have, and I'm not sure why. I don't really see the point of showing teeth, I mean, are my looks based on the size and straightness of my molars?

If you ask about your teeth, I will look and tell you. If someone asks, then they probably want to know. If they ask and you tell them and they get upset, then that's their problem.

Oh, you can always count on me. I would want someone to tell me if, for example, I had a big white-ish calk mark on my butt before walking all over campus all day (I told a complete stranger about the mark on her butt). I'm also always telling my co-workers when they have a booger, etc. I will be your true friend and tell you when you have nasty crap stuck in your teeth, as well as anything else that might need your immediate attention.
