Chopped Liver – Hold Your Head Up

My dentist told me he went to the World Cup… sort of. Let’s just say he had a presence at the World Cup.

It’s a neat little story this one.

One of his patients is a professional footballer – used to play for a Norf Lannin’ club. Ghanaian international. Played a couple of games in the tourney, then well… here’s what happened.

He broke a tooth.

Now my dentist is a very professional character – top dentist – top guy – and not prone to answering his mobile phone when he has a patient. Except on this occasion. He happened to glance at the phone and recognised who it was and knew he was at the World Cup in South Africa. So, as he was on good terms with the patient he was treating at the time, he asked if he could answer the call.

The footballer explained that he was in agony and asked for an urgent appointment as soon as he returned to the UK. This shows how good my dentist is – that the footballer was prepared to stay in pain (or was it South Africa?) to see him rather than see a local dentist.

Anyway, the following day, Ghana are playing their next game. Our friend, the footballer, is not in the starting lineup – but is on the bench. And the camera pans round to show the subs, 1st one head held high, 2nd one head high with pride – happy to be there, next up, is our man… head slumped, ice-filled towel held tightly against his cheek.

And my dentist knows something no-one else in the country knows – that’s my boy… that’s my tooth… and it is waiting for me!

Now there… are 3…. steps to… carry a donor card – ooh, wap wap!
Just follow steps 1, 2 and 3.
