I wonder if Letterman has this problem

I have a tiny gap between my two upper front teeth, and I'm slightly obsessed over it. It's not overly diastematic; it's just a fraction of a millimeter. Still, I'm obsessed with making sure there's a good air flow in the gap at all times. After eating anything, if there's any sort of matter left behind in the gap, I will stop whatever I'm doing and work on clearing it out. I usually keep floss in my desk, and when I don't have that, I'll use a piece of paper. Sticky notes work well, business cards even better. All day long, I'm testing the air flow; anything that gets in that gap will make it squeak a little bit, which has to be annoying to my coworkers.

i would be willing to bet letterman does have that problem. i don't have much of a front gap, but my side gaps are enough that i can put my tongue to the top of my mouth and blow air through them, to see if anything comes flying out.

benefit: don't need random pieces of paper, no squeaking.

disadvantage: spraying nearby people with random bits of food!

This is just so much fun that you both shared about these gaps in your teeth!

I was trying to get creative and draw what looked like a gap-toothed emoticon, but I guss I'm not creative enough yet. But thanks for asking!! :-)

Disgusting "proof" that Letterman has this problem:

I've been looking at you for years now and I've never once noticed a noticeable gap... Though this does explain why you are always looking for toothpicks etc.

You just haven't been close enough to my face to see it, that's all ;)
