This morning Zali was devastated to discover that the tooth fairy hadn't been last night. This wasn't good. I tried to tell her that the tooth fairy probably had Mondays off (when in actual fact I think it's more likely that the tooth fairy stayed up too late last night watching disc 3 of Dexter (the lovable serial killer). This isn't the first time the tooth fairy has been inconsistant. In fact once the tooth fairy managed to drop the gold coin practically on Zali's sleeping head and then was unable to locate it again in the dark. This forced a replacement coin to be positioned and of course Zali woke up in the morning and found both coins - and rejoiced at the unexpected doubling in the value of teeth. Sadly for Zali, the market value had sunk to its usual level by the time the next tooth dropped out.
