I had the option of allowing the dentist to cast them into the medical waste on the day of their removal, but that would be only to grant the legitimacy of the convenient, given answer to the question. They grew there in my jaw, as all my other teeth had done before them, and it seems rash, and maybe impertinent or even demeaning, to let some guy with a "D.D.S." on his nameplate to send parts of my body to this place or that. What next? He picks a dumpster for one of my lungs?
I set out with no clear point to make and I am happy to see I have made it.
