TOOTH FAIRY HUSH MONEY
My daughter just lost her second tooth.
On an average day, there are a number of things that you take for granted, that if you took a minute to focus on would freak you the fuck out.
For instance, how do caterpillars turn into butterflies. I KNOW. But how does it really happen. It makes ZERO sense.
Or: does it ever bother you to see a particularly content dog? I mean, that dumb dog doesn’t know ANYTHING about the internet. And yet he sits there on top of the world, happy as a clam! DON’T get me started on clams.
So on a normal day, I am not forced to consider how it is that we humans grow a full set of teeth only to grow new ones underneath those teeth as we grow. IT’S DISGUSTING AND WRONG.
In a way, the Tooth Fairy is paying hush money to my daughter so I don’t have to think about it anymore. ”Here kid, take the money and let’s forget this ever happened.”
