FFfAW Challenge – Week of July 12, 2016 – Guts or Teeth


The Gutache Toothache Clinic was unique in our town. Here you could have a colonoscophy and tooth pulled out all at the same time for a discounted price. Dr Reg Interya was an unusual practitioner in that he had degrees in gastroenterology and dentistry and thought why not run both practices simultaneously.

Though you did have to be careful to state clearly what your issue was. There were a few instances where patients weren’t clear in their intentions and found themselves having their bowel removed rather than an upper molar.

But his practice was very popular. It was an entertaining place to visit and was always booked out months in advance. You would see a range of people holding sick guts or sore mouths.  Any person with both issues was always in a real dilemma.

The dr’s receptionist a girl with a bent sense of humour would always ask on arrival: Guts or Teeth?

    Wow!! what an active imagination…I suppose it would be far better to come out of there toothless rather than the alternative 😉
