Today my 9 year old nephew, Hamish, showed me the space where he just lost a tooth while eating a pie.
I commented that he was lucky that he didn’t swallow it.
“I’ve only ever swallowed one tooth.”
“What did the tooth fairy do then?” I asked him.
“I wrote a note and told her that I swallowed my tooth, but could I have the money anyway? But I never got the money.”
“Did you look near the toilet?” I asked him. “Maybe you just looked in the wrong place!”
When he finally stopped laughing, I said, “Why don’t you tell that story at ‘Show and Tell’ tomorrow? It will make your teacher’s day.”
I do so enjoy being helpful.
