Curly Teeth

Hello Dear Reader,
After eighth grade Grandma (Mary) Carter continued Junior High School in Spanish Fork. The kids from Lake Shore rode the bus. Mary had black hair and considered it her only beauty. She took pride in making every curl just perfect whether the bus was coming or not. She often ran for the bus and ran pretty fast if the ground was frozen.

She recalled one embarrassing moment in ninth grade when a boy looked at her, pointed, and said, “Oh look, that girl’s got curly teeth!” She said she could have died. Braces were rare when she was a girl “So,” she said, “I have had crooked teeth all of my life.”

I remember grandma telling me that story when she was older. If we only knew how our comments affected others.
