I realized yesterday that the idiom “like pulling teeth” doesn’t make any more sense than “easy as pie.” With about 15 minutes to go in Sacrament Meeting we discovered Adrian’s gums above his loose tooth were bleeding.
The tooth had been getting progressively looser over the last couple weeks so, clearly, it was time for it to come out. I took the boy and a tissue out to the foyer and, with just a slight tug, out popped his little tooth. Very, very easily. Pulling actually teeth is nothing like pulling teeth!
