I wanted to swallow it so I would not feel pain. But it was literally hanging on by one thread and dad said to pull it so I gripped it and POP! It came out! And it never bled! So I would like 5.00.Sunday afternoon the last of his front teeth--the one that he has been sneaking up on me and shoving in my face to freak me out with--finally broke from the last tiny thread that had been holding it in his mouth. He has spent the last week twisting, flicking, wiggling, and generally grossing everyone out with it. Maddie told me one day after they got off the bus, "Alex can even make his tooth buck!" Say what? After some investigating, she meant that he could push it out with his tongue to make it look like a buck tooth. That right there is some definite material for the school talent show.
Alex must think the Tooth Fairy's really loaded--$5 a tooth? And do you get more if you manage to get the teeth out without bleeding on them? I guess if you factor in inflation, that's probably about the same amount I got from Ms. T.F. back in my day. At least this time he didn't make any false representations about giving his money to “the poor.”
