It’s time again for the new Friday Fictioneers’ weekly story challenge. This challenge is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt supplied for that week. The hostess for Friday Fictioneers is the gracious, talented, and dedicated author Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This week the prompt is a photo supplied by Ted Strutz. Thanks Ted.

FAMILY TEETH by P.S. Joshi
Each member of our family had a different dental history.
My brother, twenty years older, had a bridge. When I was little, he’d take it out to hear me laugh. He was missing every other tooth in one part of his mouth.
Dad went to the dentist once in his life, as a child. In middle age that tooth came out, but the filling remained. Years later, Mom pressure cooked his food.
Mom was overjoyed to finally get upper and lower dentures.
Almost every tooth in my mouth was filled before age twelve by a dentist who didn’t use Novocaine; fun.
