Sometimes my blogs about things to do with kids take on more of the second meaning of the phrase ‘things to do with kids’ in that it’s more about things that have to do with kids rather than activities for kids. This is one of those times. I’m a kid. This story has to do with me so I’m guessing I’m not the only kid who will ever face this situation.
Soo … I have a tooth that is so wobbly it can almost do a summersault one way and a cartwheel the other and I am back to visit my favorite dentist to get it pulled out. This time I am taking no chances !
Once upon a time, one of my teeth fell out and I was told to pop it in a glass for the tooth fairy. Apparently this tooth fairy has a need for unwanted teeth, and collects them at night and exchanges them for money…well that’s what is MEANT to happen.
Now what kid isn’t into gaining a little extra pocket money?
I was spending the night at my Nan and PJ’s house and Nan was showing me just how the tooth fairy liked the teeth to be presented to her and I did everything exactly how Nan said in the hope that I would received the highest price for my tooth.
I had placed my tooth in a glass with just the right amount of water – just how she liked it – and placed it on the kitchen counter. There was just enough water to keep the tooth wet but not so much that she would need to get her wings wet getting the tooth out of the glass. I went to bed that night feeling accomplished in my efforts and sure that the tooth fairy would reward me very fairly for my accurate presentation of my preloved tooth.
I woke up the next morning and ran to the kitchen to see how much money I had been paid for my tooth. I felt sure this tooth fairy, being that she was a fairy, would be super nice and would give a fair price for my efforts. I went to the kitchen counter where I had left the glass … it wasn’t there. I looked around the kitchen – nothing. “Nan. Did the tooth fairy come?” I asked.
“oh, I forgot about the tooth fairy” Nan said. I told her the whole glass was gone – Does she usually take the whole glass? Nan came out to the kitchen and frantically looked for the glass – it was no where to be seen.
“John have you seen Tookii’s tooth?” she asked my PJ (short for Puppa John). “It was in a glass on the bench.”
PJ said “no?…”
“oh I drank the water in the glass on the bench” he explained.
…….pause for effect ……
“Yuuuuuuuuck “!!!! I said “you drank my tooth” ! I couldn’t believe it and didn’t want to think about it …yuuuuck !!
And that is why I am having this tooth pulled out before it falls out.
