random thoughts from the sickroom

When I hear the phrase, "two front teeth," I immediately picture the two teeth in the front middle of the mouth on the upper jaw, and I assume nearly everyone else does, too.

But why? We have lots of teeth that could be the "front" ones, and why the top rather than the bottom?

Yes, I'm still quite sick, thanks for asking.
