The toothfairy


Isabelly Button (not her real name), Amy’s neice came round on Saturday with a wobbly front tooth. With an accidental elbow in the head Aunty Amy managed to separate tooth from head.

Isabelly Button was stunned at the loss but I think deep down inside she was gratefully that she wouldn’t have to go to the dentist on Tuesday.

The tooth was bagged up and will soon be tucked under her pillow waiting to be turned into cash. When I was a kid I got around $2 for each tooth. Amy and I worked out between us that we had just under $180 worth of pearl whites between us.

On seconds thoughts, our teeth are probably worth more to us in our head than under a pillow.
