And here's the winning answer...

   I gave my front teeth to have a job like that
I was doing a faux stone wall on a large winding staircase for a very upscale office building. Upon sanding the bulkhead on an extension ladder, I did not notice that the vibration from the electric sander was causing the ladder to gradually move to the point where it slipped and fell onto a very sturdy desk right in front of it along with me. I promptly had my two front teeth removed. I called an after hour dental clinic and they said: "Can you find your teeth?"
I found one of them, what now?. She said to get a container of milk and drop it in the milk, that will keep it alive. It was about 6 o'clock. I got to the dentist and he temporarily put back the one tooth and created a temporary second one and said "This should suffice just so people won't think that Halloween is early. I left, drove back to the job and continued working till about 10 o'clock. The owner came by with an entourage to show off his new office. I just smiled and no one knew the difference. I gave my word that I would complete the job in 2 weeks and he didn't have to pull teeth to get it done.
