Welcome back to Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show!
Tonight, we return to the story of the really great rock band … M and M and M. Marlowe wants to be in the band reallllly badly … and she’s about to audition!
Before we continue...
Pick a side on the top of your mouth, and make circles all over the inside, the outside and the chewing side of each tooth.
Marlowe was nervous. She REALLY really wanted to be in the band. But she’d never played an instrument before -- what would she be good at?
Miguel gave her a sheet of music.
MIGUEL: Ok, here’s our song. Let’s see what you got.
Marlowe looked around the rehearsal room to see what she could try. She saw a trumpet, a violin, and a cowbell.
MARLOWE: Uh, I’ll start with the trumpet
Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth and make sure you brush ALLLL the way back to your molars.
Marlowe picked up the trumpet.
MARLOWE: Ok here we go!
[TERRIBLE TRUMPET SFX]
MINA: STOP! Maybe something else?
Marlowe picked up the violin.
Marlowe: Ok sure! How about the violin?
[TERRIBLE VIOLIN SFX]
MAX: OWWW MY EARS!! Let’s try something simple..
Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and make sure you brush your front teeth too! (SFX)
MIGUEL: Listen Marlowe, I don’t think you can be in our band.
Marlowe: Well… there is one thing I haven’t tried… I can sing!
Miguel was skeptical … he wasn’t sure about this idea.
MIGUEL: We’ve never had a singer.
MARLOWE: Let me just show you what I can do!
Marlowe began to sing.
Give your tongue a brush (SFX)… and switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth. (SFX)
Marlowe finished singing and waited to hear what the band had to say.
MIGUEL: Ok guys, band meeting!
MAX/MINA: We gotta let her join!!! Woah she’s amazing, dude!!!! What do you say, Miguel?
Miguel turned to Marlowe and smiled.
MIGUEL: Okay Marlowe, you’re in!
MARLOWE: YES! Amazing! Thank you!
And that’s how a really great rock band … became the GREATEST rock band of all time!
They called themselves M & M & M and Marlowe.
Thanks for listening to Chompers! That’s all for tonight! 3 2 1 SPIT!
Oh and by the way … M&M&M and Marlowe won first place in their school’s talent show.
