The Denture and the Partial

At this stage of my life and after many expensive trips to dental offices, I am left with a few teeth on the bottom with a partial supplying the remaining teeth needed to chew and a total upper plate. I had all of the upper teeth pulled six months ago and am still becoming accustomed to the denture and the partial. My permanent teeth were always a problem as I had been cursed by inheritance with missing teeth on either side of my two front teeth. After I paid for the last dental surgery, I prayed that my dental bills in the future would be limited to periodontal maintenance. Last night, I got ready for bed and reached into my mouth to remove the bottom partial. It wasn’t there. I didn’t remember removing it but began searching the logical places. The partial was nowhere to be found. Of course, by now my partner was involved in the search. I felt so dumb searching for what should obviously have been left on the counter in the bathroom. The search ended, and I gave up and went to bed. This morning, I restarted my search, first of all by my recliner in the living room. My second inspection was around the coffee table. I saw nothing around the perimeter of the table but, reaching underneath, I felt something–my bottom partial. You will never convince me that the partial did not self-propel itself under the table in order to put me in a tizzy.
