the whole tooth, and nothing but the tooth

Earlier today I posed a question on Instagram: does the tooth fairy visit adults too? You see, I was wondering what to do with the wisdom tooth my dentist sent me home with. (Yes, I booked a time with the explanation “my karma is better, my teeth not so much”)

I remember back in the days, when I was a little girl, the tooth fairy would take my newly lost tooth from a glass of water, and leave a five mark (FIM) coin there instead for me to fish up.

I was hoping for a little more this time around, to be honest.

But then it occurred to me that I won’t be getting a dime. I realised the tooth fairy must get its money from somewhere, and it’s obviously from adults paying to get their teeth removed…

Oh bugger.
