This blog would like to congratulate the head of its legal department for successfully losing his first tooth this past weekend. The occasion was celebrated with great fanfare and speculation of future monetary rewards to be delivered by the Tooth Fairy that evening.
While I cannot comment on how much money was exchanged for the aforementioned tooth, analysts are estimating it was at or around the $5.00 level. While that amount may seem high, they had to account for the only-child and first-tooth-to-fall-out factors.
In order to avoid filing chapter 11, Tooth Fairy Inc. (symbol: TOOF) can only hope that enough time elapses before the second tooth is extracted in hopes of causing the child to forget how much money he received for the first tooth. The results could be disastrous for the Tooth Fairy if word of this unprecedented pay out for one tooth is leaked to the public.
I've got bad news for the Tooth fairy, that kid has the memory of an elephant and he likes to talk. A lot.
Side note: The tooth in the above picture was removed by the steady hands of the Head of our Culinary Arts Department in which this blog owes a great debt of thanks. It seems as if this blog becomes quite squeamish around lose teeth and will usually not go within eye shot of someone even wiggling a loose tooth. We realize that if it wasn't for her heroic efforts, this blog's tooth extraction methods would probably consist of fishing line tied to door knobs.
