Christmas Cheers!


Christmas Cheers!

‘Twas two weeks before Christmas with plans winding down.

Not a denturist was working, it seemed, in our town.

The stockings were hung, filled with presents and more,

When Johnny first noticed a new canker sore.

It was sore under his tongue and it hurt when he talked.

A glass of cold organe juice made him sit up and squawk!

He complained to his wife when she asked “what the matter?”

After screaming and dropping his class, which then shattered.

The timing was awful with Christmas Eve the next day.

How would he manage? Christmas was looking quite gray.

She picked up the phone since she knew who to call.

And she dialed Barry Lewis with no worries at all.

Laura picked up the phone with her usual cheer,

And let John’s wife know “of course we are here!”

“we’ve got some time open, right now if that works.”

“Emergency appointments most times.“ Oh my, what a perk!

She let Johnny know and she gave him the keys.

With a “put on your coat! It’s cold out…you’ll freeze!”

He arrived at the office at a quarter past eight.

Laura told him, “don’t sit down…there isn’t a wait!”

He walked past Sandy and Frank and then he acknowledged,

they were so full of chee he was much less discouraged.

Sandy commented on Johnny’s new bright Christmas sweater,

And told him she was sure we could make him feel better.

Barry popped in to the room, with his face full of hope.

Then he looks at poor Johnny’s tongue with the new scope.

Barry looked up at Johnny, ‘twas a smile that he wore.

He said, “Johnny you’ve got is a plain canker sore.”

“I’ve had them myself, I know what shape you’re in,

But you can be sure we’ve got a solution.”

“I know the pains big though the lesion is small.

With a quick adjustment there will be no pain at all.”

In a moment they were done, Johnny felt great relief!

“I feel better already!” he said in disbelief.

“You guys rescued my Christmas! I thank you so much!”

Laura said, “No problem. If you need us, be in touch.”

He felt so elated! His denturist office gave him reason!

They were open this time of the season!

We wish you a lovely Christmas and New Year!

We want you to know that if you need us we’re here!
