Down In The Mouth
by Liz Barr

Archie smiled at his reflection as he put his toothbrush down. His teeth sparkled. He'd brushed every tooth carefully, just like the dentist had taught him.

"Yup!" he said, "Ronnie'll appreciate this for sure!"

He flashed at smile at Ronnie as she jumped in his car. She looked magnificent in her expensive dress.

"Archie!" she squealed. Then her smile changed to a look of horror. "Oh! I forgot to brush my teeth!"

Archie felt only a twinge of guilt as he pulled away, leaving Veronica behind. You couldn't forget about dental hygiene...

He wondered what Betty was doing that night.
