So I am DONE with being the Tooth Fairy. Surprisingly exhausting, this Tooth Fairy gig. I destroyed Lydia’s innocence a while ago, and tonight it was time for Sam.
He lost another tooth tonight (and by ‘lost’ I mean ‘I yanked it out of his mouth’), and it’s been a long Friday so I came up to him and said, “Hey Buddy, the Tooth Fairy is tired. Can she go ahead and pay you tonight?”
Sam, confused, said, “Yeah?”
So I dropped a folded up dollar bill into his hand.
I wait for it to click.
But instead . . .
“Oh wow!” he exclaims, “Hopefully she can get some more gold coins soon!”
