Title: the tooth of the matter - part 1
Date: July 27, 2007
Summary: Steve tries to hide his toothache from Beaver.
Number of panels: 7
Steve holds his swollen cheek while a couple stars of PAIN shoot out.
Steve (in a thought bubble): Oh! Ow! My tooth aches with the ache of a thousand aching teeth! But I can't let Beaver find out...
Steve (in a thought bubble): Here he comes now - Got to act normal...
Beaver walks in holding a box with a picture of a cat on it.
Beaver: Hey Steve! How are you doing?
Beaver: Wow! That's good to hear!
Beaver opens the box, which contains brown candies. Steve starts to sweat and look nervous.
Beaver: Look, I made you your favourite food: incredibly hard and sticky toffee!
Beaver: Go on - help yourself!
Beaver is smiling while Steve sweats even more.
Steve GULP!s a piece of toffee.
Steve attempts to CHEW the toffee.
Steve: GNAAARGH! GAAAA! AAARGH!
Beaver: Hmm - is everything alright Steve?
Beaver: Say - you don't have a toothache do you?
Steve SHAKE-A-SHAKEs his head.
Beaver: No? Well can you open your mouth for me then?
Steve opens his mouth to show a grey and rotten tooth with mushrooms growing out of it, stink lines, flies flying around, and the Tooth Worm.
Beaver: Now I'm no expert, but I think maybe it's time we took you to see...
Beaver: ...THE DENTIST!
Tooth Worm: Hullo!
