This week I'm doing 325. Are you left handed or right handed? What about your parents and siblings?
When I was growing up my family did Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy - the whole shebang. The Tooth Fairy typically left me twenty-five or fifty cents (I can't really remember now). When I first started losing my teeth it was pretty exciting. I always wondered how the Tooth Fairy was able to take my tooth and leave money. Magic, right?
One night, as my mom was tucking me into bed I told her that I had asked the Tooth Fairy for a ring just like my friends - I was really excited about it, which is the only reason that I told my mom. My friend had been given a mood ring, and I thought it was so cool!
My mom is an awesome mom. She nodded her head in agreement, oh yes, Tooth Fairy, good good. In reality (which she told me later) she was totally panicked. Crap! Why did I have to wait until bedtime to tell her about the stupid ring?! I'm not sure where she went that night, but when I woke up the next morning there was a mood ring AND a note from the Tooth Fairy. Holy. Crap.
The note, written in fairy scrawl, told me that she was sorry this wasn't the EXACT ring that my friend had, but she had run out of those. This new ring, a dolphin mood ring, would have to do. IT. WAS. BEAUTIFUL.
I still have the Tooth Fairy letter, tucked away in a drawer at my mom's house. When I realized that the whole Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and Easter Bunny thing wasn't real my mom told me that she wrote the note with her left hand. My mom is pretty much ambidextrous, which made magical notes from the tooth fairy FANTASTIC.
