Pulling Teeth

Hard rubbish wombling in the dark is only for the intrepid and very foolish. Putting my hand inside an enormous, sagging, soggy cardboard box wasn’t without considerable risk….and some kind of reward. The box was crammed full of smaller boxes containing plaster casts of teeth. Many of these casts captured mouths in medievally horrific condition - I certainly felt sorry for this dentist's victims. In any case, it was a very surreal moment to pull out these teeth under the full moonlight. The large box was impossibly heavy so I only managed to stagger home with a dozen sets. I also found the small x-ray, sandwiched between some teeth. File this find under 'Freaky'.
