A Big, Run-On Question


"So, Mom? I'm going to put my tooth inside the tooth fairy box so that Tooth Fairy can bring me a dollar while I'm sleeping but can you please-oh-please let her know that I need her to wait to take the tooth until after the alphabets-sharing-day of "T" on Monday because I'm going to bring my tooth to share for "T" at school but then after that she can have it but I just need it until then because tooth starts with T-T-T and then can you just tell her that mom, do you think she'll say okay? Do you?"

    How does one contact the tooth fairy to ask? Does she have an e-mail address? A toll-free number? I've never really thought about this before. Do you forfeit your dollar if you wait? Such are the mysteries.

  3. you leave a note along with the tooth...but make it sparkly with lots of glitter because that will get her attention...works everytime.

  4. It's very simple.
    Tooth Fairy (tm) Bylaws state that a child may keep possession of a tooth for as long as they like. However no monetary compensation will be provided until said time when the tooth in question is left for nocturnal pickup by the Tooth Fairy (tm). Once said exchange is made the tooth in question is permanently forfeited.

  7. Stuart - Points to you for being the first to use the word "reliquary" in the comments section.

  8. I, too, am just too impressed by "reliquary" to offer anything that could possibly be of interest.
