Five-year-old Daniel was recovering from a mouth injury that required several stitches. He overheard the conversation with the oral surgeon in which the likely loss of 2 - 4 of his baby teeth was discussed.
Daniel was eating breakfast. His twenty-year-old sister Rachel was sleeping on the couch in the next room. Suddenly Daniel hollered, something had fallen out of his mouth! He picked it up, ran to the next room, and woke Rachel up. Practically hysterical, he showed Rachel what had fallen out of his mouth. He asked her if it was his tooth. Rachel looked at the soggy piece of Cap'n Crunch cereal and smiling, told him that it wasn't. Reassured, he flicked the cereal on the floor, walked to the table and finished his breakfast.
