Not Fair

 The toothache. I get them checked and cleaned twice a year, I clean and floss them. And what? The whitest of them start aching right in the middle of the night and all day long! And the day turns to be quite important one. Not fair.
Could happen to anyone?  I have suspects the writers are often silent of those facts in regard of their heroes. Take D’Artagnan for example. Let’s say you have a schedule – a deed a day. You think you would have time to brush your teeth in between a fight, confrontation with  cardinal, executing a super-lady, saving a queen and befriending a lord? Most likely you would lose the toothbrush in the course of action. 

Each time my dentist finds out there is a cavity he makes a sly face, I can notice that under his mask, and asks, – are you flossing regularly? Frankly, I cannot imagine D”Artagnan flossing every time after having foie gras with D”Anjou wine. The fact that he was having toothache is hushed, a big mistake by the author, his hero would have gained sympathy and popularity and as a result sales would have doubled.  Not bad for two centuries. Maybe it did not happen when he was traveling to London, but during the siege of La Rochelle, for sure. He seemed to be going white frequently then.

And that is not only D”Artagnan, it could have happened to the others too, Porthos, Aramis, Athos.

 Milady, she was already missing a tooth.  BTW, do you smell some sexism here?
