Keep those pearly whites smiling

One of the funniest things anyone has ever said to me about the relationship I have with my husband Michael was said by his little sister, Angie.  She would observe us together, shake her head and laugh. One day she said, “Every time he looks at you, it’s like he wants to eat you up.”

Now if that isn’t a positive endorsement on the state of our chemistry as a couple, I don’t know what is.

It reminds me of one of my favorite piropos (pick-up lines):

Tanta carne y yo sin dientes.

Which means: “All that meat and me with no teeth”.

As a plus size woman, that says it all. 

My husband and I go back and forth on this topic.

Back when we used to be coworkers, he used to flirt with me like crazy. He’d compliment my clothing, my hair, the way I smelled. My soft hands.

My teeth.

He always had me smiling and laughing, so he had a great view of my teeth.

Me, ever the tooth-conscious, bad-breath-conscious person I am, always made sure my teeth were white and my breath was fresh.

He denies it, though (the flirting part, not the white teeth part). Deny, deny, deny.

Eighteen years and six kids later, he still denies ever flirting with me first.

Whatever, man.

I know the truth, and so do my teeth (because you’re still making me smile, honey!). White teeth and fresh breath are still a huge priority for me, all these years later.

I like Crest Complete because they offers a wide range of toothpastes and gels for a deep clean and fresh flavor and it even contains whitening power (my fave!). Exactly what I need for a freshness that lasts all day, especially when I’m flirting with my husband.

    To me, a smile means that everything will be A-OK! Even though it may not be, the kinks will work themselves out.

    A smile whether given or received brightens my day and makes me suddenly aware of the fact that the world is a beautiful and wonderful place.
    My dad always said “there are three kinds of smiles, a genuine cheerful smile, an obedient smile because someone told you to smile, and a smile to minister to someone. I don’t care which one you choose, just use one of them!”
