Empirical Tooth Fairy

Categories: Kids

Michael (8) lost another tooth last week and was excited about the loot he was expecting to receive from the Tooth Fairy. When I went to tuck him in, I noticed he had tied blankets around the ladder to his bunk bed. He explained that these were traps to see if the Tooth Fairy is real. He figured that the Tooth Fairy could fly and wouldn't be stopped by the blankets, but if it was me, I couldn't get up there to swap the tooth for money. I scoffed and removed the blankets.

Later in the evening, when I went to, um, check on him, I saw he had put rows of books on the floor to trip any faux-Tooth Fairies. Sneaky devil. Good thing the Tooth Fairy is tricky too. I think the Tooth Fairy may need night-vision goggles and powder to detect IR beams next time; it's getting dangerous for the TF these days.

Hello Tony,

I work for a diabetes program in Alaska and would like to use the photo you took of a broken fortune cookie for a poster I'm displaying about my program. This poster will not be published. Do I have your permission to use the photo? Sorry for this, but I will need to know no later than Thursday November 6, 2009 at 5pm so that I can meet the poster deadline.

thank you,
