“What’s it like to have a gap between your teeth?” a girl asked me one day.
Nobody had ever 36 before. My hand unconsciously rose to cover my mouth.

Later that day at home, I began to 39 my teeth again. I felt upset. I thought
my life would be somehow better if my teeth were not gappy. How I wanted the
perfect teeth that everyone else seemed to have!
Of course, Mom 40 everything. She has lived her entire life with gappy teeth,
and tried to convince me that there was nothing to 41 . When I refused to listen,
she told me I could get the surgery to close the gap if it was that
important .“Let’s be 42 , though,” she said. “If everyone got surgeries to become
pretty, everyone would be exactly the same. There is beauty in differences.”
Her 43 made me consider my teeth seriously. The thought of losing my gap
was more terrible than the reality that people were going to notice it. I realized
how important it was to me. It is part of my 44 .
Nowadays many people do ridiculous things to realize their dream of
“perfection.” The 45 is that no one is perfect. When all potential for ugliness is
removed, so is all of the potential for 46 .
So if that girl ever asked about my teeth 47 , I would truthfully answer,
