Dear Kid,
Ignore the Tooth Nazi. He's due for a root canal. I'll make it two.
All will be well.

Oh dear. I laughed till it hurt.

Well, perhaps Gerard is right. The kid told me he was under water on the subprime payday loan he had taken out on his wiggletooth.

Damn kids.

Gerard said...

In that case, he's ripe for a bailout.

My son misplaced his FIRST lost tooth. I told him no toothie, no money...that the Tooth Fairy wouldn't even put us on her route without actual dental material. The second lost tooth [just last week] got stored in a zip-lock bag and he was overjoyed to have his money. He learns pretty well from that brick wall called 'consequences.'

That said, fumbling a tooth down a rushing torrent of tap water is a different fact pattern than being a dippy and losing positive control of it and having no idea where it went.
