Call Me Ms. Fairy, first name Tooth

Do you ever wonder what happens to your teeth when they disappear from under your pillow, and in the morning you find (usually) a monetary replacement? I am here to tell you that these teeth don't just disappear into thin air!
They land very neatly, in a very specific order in labeled drawers in Salt Lake City, of all places!

Okay, seriously,I know it is kind of weird that I have pictures of teeth, but I just find this very amusing! We have drawers and drawers full of teeth at our office. We are a dental supplier, and yeah it makes sense that we sell teeth for dentures, but I was so creeped out the first time I saw them. I also found it funny that when people called to order teeth, they asked for the "Tooth Fairy", and she would come a-runnin'! Cute little Fran, she barely clears five feet and has bright white hair and she sings and whistles all day long. She even has the children of some of our employees convinced that this is where their teeth go when the TF takes them.
Well, last week, Fran started not feeling so well. She has been out of work now for a week and guess who is taking care of the counter while she is gone? Yeah, that's right-ME! So I guess I have quite the rep to live up to. I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders, but I will take it in stride (or maybe a flap of a wing) and do everything I can to be the best Tooth Fairy Ever!

That's hilarious! I can't wait to tell my kids that I'm friends with the tooth fairy.

How funny! Now you can tell your kids that you were a temp for the tooth fairy. Hope you guys are doing well. Val and I are thinking of planning another get together soon. We will let you know. Have a Merry Christmas.

Yeah, that's a big job, I mean the TF is sort of like Santa and that's pretty huge. Thinking about it, santa gets his done in a night. The TF works all year long. good luck with the odd hours, i hope it is just temporary.

I can't believe that I didn't realize that you guys were at my mom's house playing poker and I didn't say hi! So sorry! Hope you had fun at the Sugar Bowl.
