Pretty much doubt it

If you were at the grocery store
Waiting in line
and the person ahead of you
was bored with waiting
so turned back to talk with you
and flashed you a grin...

and was missing a front tooth or two...

would you respond to her in the same way
you'd respond to a woman who packed a full set of
mighty bright
mighty tight
mighty expensive chompers?

    I’ll respond to a woman sporting a full set of chompers the same as if she had Elephant mans disease. If she engages me in polite conversation I’ll happily respond, regardless of her outwardly appearance. No doubt in my mind that when bombshell or elephant woman walks away they will feel better about the world we share.

    Hey Nancy, welcome to PoetrySoup. Hmmmm, you pose a good question. I don't respond the same way to different people. A unique response for every person. Funny, because if I was going to be honest, a set of overly bright chompers can be just as much of a turn-off as some rotting teeth or whatever(it's the smell that gets to me - hey, I am being honest!). Overly bright chompers can be super creepy. They aren't any fun, always worrying about how every single action is going to change their teeth.
