Old rules

I took a needle, a spool of thread, and a scrap I meant to baste into
a folded strip to make tabs for my linen niqab to the rocking chair
beside the patio door.
When the job was done, I realized that I'd forgotten to bring a
cutting tool, so for the first time in decades I bit off the basting
thread.
Mom told me very emphatically not to do that because it would wear a
notch in my teeth.
Not the same teeth that I was wearing when she taught me that. They
aren't as sharp, which cuts down on the temptation to do it again.

I learned that lesson the hard way. When I was a teenager my dentist noticed that I had notches on my front teeth and smoothed them off. He asked me what I had been biting but I think I was too embarrassed to tell him, and I?ve never done it again! Jane
