Tooth Fairy Query
What's the going rate for lost teeth these days?
Merry Christmas, by the way.
BTW, I love your blog. I recently finished a stint as interim dean of a law school. Same issues, frustrations, occasional triumphs. Thanks for brightening my days!
Besides, with $1 they can't buy anything, so I end up augmenting it out of my wallet. This way it's all on them.
And what happens to all the teeth the tooth fairy collects? They end up as the rattles/mixer-uppers in cans of spray paint or WD-40 or whatever. That's how the tooth fairy gets money to give to little kids
My mom told us that the teeth we lost went to new babies, since they didn't have any teeth yet!
I feel like a little boy who's lost his first tooth. Put it under his pillow, waiting for the tooth fairy to come. Only, two evil burglars have crept in my window...
- Wait a second. Do you understand
the concept of the tooth fairy?
You find a tooth. You put it under your pillow. Wait. She takes the goddamn thing, gives you a quarter.
