Good Teeth Means Higher Bride Price

I went to the dentist yesterday and Dr. Meadows had to tell me about how one of his patients told him good teeth in a woman were important in some cultures. Guarantees a good bride price when they marry her off. This useless piece of info got stuck in this patient's caw b/c fixing his wife's teeth has cost him a fortune. This guy even told Dr. M he wouldn't have married his wife if he'd a known her teeth were so bad!

Dr. M thought this was hilarious. Upshot was, he told me I would've brought a good bride price because I have good teeth. I smiled, showing off my good teeth. Didn't bother to point out how crooked the bottom ones are. There wasn't much money in my family for things like braces when I was a kid so Jeb lucked out when he married me.
