Not silly at all. Very very cool. Especially the baby tooth thing. That is crazy!

I'm so glad that I knew many things on your list. I remember my sister-in-law making the comment to me years ago that medical school friends would become some of our best friends we would ever have. That is certainly the case with you. I'm so glad that we keep in touch.

Nice job!
