My son lost another tooth yesterday. That meant another visit from the tooth fairy.
Now, the tooth fairy was really tired, and her mind wasn't really on her job. At about midnight, she thought it was time to go to bed. She crawled into bed, pulled the covers over her, and fell asleep.
Then she had a crazy dream about Santa Claus delivering Christmas presents.
She awoke with a start. "Oh my gosh, I almost forgot!"
She dashed into my son's bedroom, knocked over a few things in her haste, and quickly delivered the cash.
Fortunately, my son was sawing logs, so he didn't hear any of it.
"Whew!" she said. "That was a close one!"
