A New Perspective

I couldn't believe...
Oh! The disappointment!
Reaching beneath my pillow to find...
My tooth!
Not a dime
Or a quarter
Or a pack of gum.
My tooth,
Right where I'd left it
The night before.
My mom said,
"I'm sure she'll come tonight.
Maybe she was busy."
The Tooth Fairy forgot me.
I was wounded.
But I put the tooth back anyway...

(In case you wondered, Pete said the tooth fairy is about 3 inches tall, about as tall as one of those little mini golf pencils.)

Watch out, this might happen. It sometimes took the tooth fairy four or five days to make it over to our house. Those were the times when Beanie got MEGA Bucks... The TF felt guilty, I daresay...

Lucky for Pete, I thought to put Husbanguy in charge of the actual switch. I gave him the note and the dollar and then promptly forgot all about it.
