Nothing Wrong With My Teeth!

Well my mom has always said that she has felt the presence of an African American family in our very old home. This story makes me laugh every time that she tells it to me.
I hope you enjoy it.
My mom was finishing up at the dentist while at our house, nobody was there. My mom's friend, Deborah, had just assumed that my mom was already home from the dentist, but as I said, nobody was home.
So Deborah called the home phone, and somebody answered. Deborah said, "Oh hey. How are your teeth?". And in an African American woman's voice said, "There ain't nothing wrong with my teeth!" and then hung up.
Deborah was shocked and called my mom's phone. My mom answered and Deborah told my mom what had just happened.
Now almost every time my mom and Deborah hang out they always say, "There ain't nothing wrong with my teeth!"
