In orthodontic news today, Greer Shmeer, age 11.97, had her braces
removed at 9:30 a.m. local time, after having worn them for one-quarter
of her life. At the joyous conclusion of three years of avoiding
taffy and wearing snacks in her teeth, Shmeer left a Toronto ortho
office this morning in the company of her biographer, who had photographed
the removal process.
Said Shmeer to waiting reporters, "Wow."
When pressed for details, she added, "Wow."
Making an effort to adjust her enunciation for the
increased aerodynamic efficiently in her mouth, Shmeer concluded,
After leaving the dental office, Shmeer shopped for sticky candy,
gum, and "the perfect pink lipstick."
(Revlon "Pink in the Afternoon") Revlon
CEO Jeffrey Nugent was delighted to learn of the selection
and speculated that there was a "very good possibility"
that a first quarter '02 promotion will be centered around Shmeer's
choice. Tentative campaign tagline: "For lips that
have nothing to hide." Revlon Chairman
Ronald Perelman added, "Cindy Crawford
had to go, because we received an inside tip that Shmeer's braces
were about to come off. Our shareholders are smacking their lips."
Said Director of Corporate Communications, Ashley I. Lash,
"Like, I'm so, like, psyched."
Once back in the 'mom-mobile™,' the official
vehicle that carried Shmeer along the route to Groucho Senior Public
Almost High School, she stared at the passenger-side mirror while
eating Turtles™, chewing gum, applying lipstick, and licking
her teeth in their sleek, slick, hardware-free condition. She
waved graciously to those lining the route and tossed a Turtles'™
wrapper to one ecstatic fan, causing a brief scuffle that was quickly
brought under control with orders to "Chill!" from
the RCMP™ security force.
