Wiggling that tooth for days had done nothing, but it popped out while she brushed her teeth and swirled down the drain before she realized what happened. She lay on the carpet and wailed.
I wrote a note to explain the circumstances to the Tooth Fairy. We even taped a grain of rice to it as a substitute offering.

Subsequent teeth only earned $1 each but that first tooth, whether under the pillow or the sink, was special.
