21 Days of Compliments – Day 20

             Today is Day 20 of the 21 Days of Compliments challenge. Tomorrow will be my last blog on this challenge. Please, everyone do not jump up and holler at the same time, it might just cause a tiny earthquake.
            I have a gap between my two front teeth. I’ve never considered it a bad thing, although I have had my share of dentists attempt to convince me that they could fix it. I have always considered it an identifying mark. 
            If I was ever murdered, they could identify my body by the gap between my teeth. If someone could not remember if I was the person who nearly ran them over, they could identify me in a line-up by my smile with the gap between my teeth.
            I always knew the chances of developing a cavity between those two particular teeth was next to none and that was a great relief to me considering my trepidation of going to the dentist. As a child, I would swish water between my teeth and make many bubbles.
            Take a look at Lauren Bacall. She became a famous model and she has a gap between her teeth. I would think that when I am a famous author (okay – it is a stretch) that I could be compared to her. She is a freethinker. She has traveled and experienced the world. She is not afraid to try new adventures. The way I see it, I am in good company.
            I think having a gap between my two front teeth is a good thing. I’m just wondering how to put a compliment spin on it. Let me try this: the gap between my two front teeth has been a positive element in my life. Okay - it works for me.
           Even the French -- those ever chic folks -- they call the gap tooth thing: dents du bonheur- LUCKY TEETH
