#1 Thanks, Dad
Do me a favor.
I couldn't think of anything to write, so please pretend that you're reading something really touching, maybe even wipe away a tear, and then look at me and say, "that is so beautiful. I didn't know you could write like that." Then if anyone asks to see the card, refuse and tell them it was just too personal.
Thanks, I owe you one.

#44 A Friend's Son Got $1 From The Tooth Fairy A Couple Days Ago. He Wrote Her A Letter Asking To Upgrade His $1 To $5. This Was The Tooth Fairy's Response
My name is Dee Kay. My associate Tooth fairy told me about your letter and I have been assigned to your case #092208-5.
We have removed our Plaques from the wall, going 3 years EWI (extraction without incident), in order to focus and resolve your case. It looks as though we need to Brush Up on our extraction skills, and the going rate for teeth.
One thing we do agree on and have taken into consideration, it was very bold of you to ask for more money. Since all your teeth have been cavity free we decided to increase your TPO (tooth pay out) by $1 for future extractions. This is with the stipulation the tooth is cavity free. Should you place a cavity filled tooth under your pillow you will receive a bill to cover our costs of flight travel. We cannot take CFT's (cavity filled teeth) back with us. Our CTO (central tooth officer) S. Cary Gums, would shut down the DDD (Department of Dental Disturbance) if we even attempted to bring a CFT back, and that would mean no TPO's for children anywhere. I know you wouldn't want to be the cause of that.
Thank you for reading our response to your letter. I am filing this case as closed.
Stay strong and brush on!
Director of DDD
