Can You Tell A Story In…

It’s that time of the week – five-word challenge time again! For this week’s challenge, can you tell a story in five words, using the word Teeth in it somewhere?

Last week, your story needed to contain the word Nightmare. You sent in some great stories. Here they are:

A horrid, terrible nasty nightmare.
