Good One, Tooth Angel! -- posted by George

First, you should know that we put our lost teeth under our pillows for the tooth angel, not the tooth fairy, because of course there is no such thing as a fairy. There are angels, which means messengers, and there are both celestial (heavenly) and terrestrial (earthly) angels. (My mom is all for having a good time, but she doesn't like telling us wild fantasy as truth because she wants us to be able to trust her. So anyway we have a tooth angel.)

Well, the night before the last one, I lost a molar and I had the great idea to play a prank on the tooth angel (not that I want to get in a feud with the tooth angel, but I thought it would be fun). I made a little piece of foil in the shape of my tooth and put it in a little tiny Ziploc baggie. I figured since it was so dark in my room, she wouldn't notice. Sure enough, the next morning I got a dollar anyway!

Last night I had another great idea to put my real tooth under my pillow to get another dollar. When I woke up this morning, my tooth was gone, and in its place was... the molar-shaped foil from the night before!

I tricked the tooth angel, and the tooth angel tricked me!
