The Tooth Fairy

Conversation at the cigar shop today...

Red, (talking about his first child), "Will's got a loose tooth. He's 4."

Rhino, "Isn't that the time it happens?"

Red, "Around 5 or so usually."

Rhino, "Well, he's ahead of the curve."

Larry (whose children are all grown), "Now you get to be the Tooth Fairy."

Red, "I'm not anything with fairy in it."

Demetrious, (who has 5 young children), "You know the haul per tooth is $5.00 these days."

Larry, "If that's the case then I'd pull all of my teeth."

Odd conversations.

    I'd say pulling one's teeth for the short term is a stupid return on a long term investment.

  3. Bangarrr, I think you just hit on the plot for Stephen King's next novel. Ouch.

  4. Sir Terry Prachett had an excellent take on the tooth fairy in Hogfather.
