Tale Of A Rich Tooth Fairy.

Today, Big B told me the story of a boy in her class that lost his tooth. He accidentally fell down and knocked it out. However, the good news was that the tooth Fairy came to visit him. Big B told me he got a dollar in exchange for the tooth.

I asked her how much she thought she would get for a tooth. She responded with certainty:

'At least $100.00.'

My mom has already passed along my childhood tooth fairy pillow. In it was an old note written by me back in the early 1980s. The note reads:

'Dear Tooth Fairy, Don't take my tooth if you are leaving me only 25 cents.'

I was probably hoping for a dollar back then.

Talk about inflation.
