I Charge More For Incisors
Despite his overpayment, his original plan had been to pay his son 5 bucks a tooth. Thinking that wasn't too shabby, I was quite surprised when when most of the comments were people in shock about the amount of cash the Tooth Fairy was dishing out.
I've heard other people talk about what they got from the tooth fetish fairy, and it was always something along the lines of a quarter a tooth, a buck a tooth, and for the really overpaid - 2 bucks a tooth. And until now, I always kept what I got to myself...
...but I used to get 10 or 15 bucks a tooth (I'm sure my dad was the one giving 15), plus maybe a cassette tape I'd been wanting (think Roxette or Vanilla Ice) and usually a book or toy. I had this little tooth pillow where the cash would be deposited, but then the rest of my haul would be sitting on my night stand.
But in light of everyone else sharing what they got, I'm beginning to understand why people thought I was spoiled. But did I mention I was an only child till I was 12?
