The dentist who said some years ago that they must get pulled out one day came from Peru, and one should know that the concept of dental medicine in South America often is different to the one here. They are no "dentists" there but more "headists". I feared that day to come, but something drove me to finally do it.
The first one got out "relatively" easy, and it looked so cute that I took it home, considering to wear it as necklace. A dreamy tooth, not really developed, almost a baby.
I wondered about the increasing hunger I had after the surgery.
The other tooth was really mean, it was horizontally in the jaw, fixed with two massive roots, the surgeon had to break it - a monster tooth, resisting to get out, causing real pain. The cheek is terribly swallen after, a monster cheek.
Then, the next day, I slept very much until Sunday, I dreamed that these teeth had mirrored each other all the time, like twins - a dreamy one and a monster. That was a most interesting idea...
Jacob and Esau - hadn*t I posted that before? And my suspicion?
The twin myths of the American Indians are interesting:
The Twins Cycle, Version 1
The Sam Blowsnake Version
§1. The Birth of the Twins.
An old man had his son and daughter-in-law living with him. One day he
killed his daughter-in-law and cut open her womb where he found twin
boys. One of these he hid in a stump, and the other he left behind in
the lodge before he fled. The father found the boy in the lodge, whom he

[First page of this MS is missing.] An old man induces his
daughter-in-law to set a kettle boiling and to strip naked and lie in
the center of the lodge. He then kills her and cuts her open with a
knife. He takes out two babies, putting one in the corner, and the other
in the hollow of a tree. He ate the woman. The father was left to raise
the son he found in his lodge, Flesh.
Aye, twin sisters existed too:
The Twin Sisters
retold by Richard L. Dieterle
two that have a human shape. This is the story of their origin. Once
there were twin sisters who passionately loved twin brothers. One day
the boys went down to the river and began spearing sturgeon [inset].
They did not do so out of necessity, but for the idle sport of slaying
the river's creatures. This infuriated the (?Water-)spirit of the river,
who overwhelmed the twins with such a torrent of water that their
bodies were never found. The twin sisters pined for their lovers, and
every day went about searching for them. They offered the spirits
sacrifices of every sort for the return of the boys, but their prayers
went unanswered. Their grief was so great that Earthmaker himself took
pity on them and turned them into great stone statues by the river so
that they could always be with those whom they loved.
