Dear Tooth Fairy

When our 9-year-old lost her most recent tooth, the tooth fairy was a bit slow in paying her. Each morning, we’d hear all about how the tooth fairy must be on vacation or overly busy.

One evening, our daughter spent some time relating the situation to her grandfather. That night we found the following note on her door:

Dear Tooth Fairy,

I charge 10% every day you haven’t come to pick up my tooth. I lost my tooth on Monday June 29, 2009.

P.S. A molar tooth is special so it costs more money. Do 10% more.

The next day she was paid in full, interest included. She was thrilled, though I don’t like to think about what she learned from this. I’m going to have to have a talk with grandpa. :)
