River comes downstairs, holds something small out for me to see, and grins.
“What is it?”
“The tooth fairy already done come and gone.”
“She’s too fast for me.”
“Is that a hint?”
“I don’t know.”
Regular readers of my little corner of the world (all four of you) know that I’ve had this long-standing fantasy of catching the tooth fairy in the act and having my way with her in exchange for preserving her anonymity. I guess I’ve still got a few years before our kids lose all their teeth. If her cover hasn’t been blown by then.
